Call for Papers - 6th International Symposium in Computational Economics and Finance (ISCEF) 2020

The rapid development of financial systems is often attributed to the effects of financial innovation, the internationalization of capital markets, the evolution in financial regulations and intermediation, the development of emerging markets, the financialization of commodity markets, etc. These factors generated more globalized and complex markets and economic systems. The recent financial downturn rapidly spread to all international financial systems, triggered a major liquidity crisis, induced important volatility excess for commodity prices and consequently an economic recession for several developed and emerging countries. In this context, economists noted the failure and limitation of well-known models to forecast this crisis. Thus, several models and methods were severally excluded and numerous sophisticated tools in mathematical finance, econometrics and computational economics are checked and revised in order to improve the modeling and forecasting of macroeconomic and financial time-series dynamics.

This is particularly crucial because the development of new tools and innovative methodologies can help to improve trading, investment financing decisions, equity modeling and risk management. This is also required to improve the comprehension of complex economic and financial systems and to enable the development of new approaches able to forecast future dynamics. For example, the recent developments of dynamic stochastic model have improved the analysis of macroeconomic policies. The analysis of monetary policies has also benefited from the recent developments in database, time series and panel data econometrics. Also, recent analyses and on-going research topics associated with alternative finance (ethical finance, energy finance, commodity markets, responsible and sustainable development) can offer new forms of finance, investment and value creation to regulate conventional financial system.

The 6th  International Symposium in Computational Economics and Finance (ISCEF) is designed to enable academics and professionals to come together to discuss their latest research findings, with a focus on the main outcomes of the global economic crisis and the current issues challenging banking, finance and commodities during these turbulent times. The conference will also serve as a valuable platform for discussing innovative and thought-provoking ideas and modeling approaches on the above-mentioned issues.
