Dear Colleague,

this is a gentle reminder for participating to the “IWcee16 - IV International Workshop on Computational Economics and Econometrics” that will be held in Rome, June 30 - July 1, 2016 at the National Research Council of Italy.


IWcee16 main topic this year will be:

“Coping with Uncertainty in Complex Socio-Economic Systems”

Economies are sophisticated social systems characterized by pervasive uncertainty, which makes agents’ behaviours and systemic outcomes difficult to predict. The study of such systems thus requires new datasets and more reliable statistical techniques. This is a necessary requirement for enabling policymakers to assess and regulate economic performance vis-à-vis uncertainty. IWcee16 aims to raise a rigorous scientific debate on the many interconnections between uncertainty and socio-economic performance, by focusing on the tools offered by modern quantitative socio-economic science.

This year’s keynote speaker at IWcee16 will be Prof. Joshua Angrist (MIT, Boston, US) giving a talk on “The Way of 'Metrics Begins with Questions”.

Papers on the following topics are highly welcome:

Measuring and communicating uncertainty; Uncertainty propagation in relational systems; Sensitivity analysis and robustness methods; Network dynamics and resilience; Agent-based and game-theory modelling of uncertain environments; Risk analysis; Chaotic socio-economic systems; Causal inference and identification under uncertainty; Time series analysis and forecasting techniques, Big Data analysis

The best papers presented at the workshop will be published in a Special Issue of the “International Journal of Computational Economics and Econometrics” (IJCEE).

It goes without saying that your participation would be highly appreciated and we would be really glad if you could circulate this call among your colleagues also in other departments and universities.

The deadline for abstract submission to [log in to unmask]  is:  April 15, 2016.
