The 24th Annual Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA)
WEHIA 2019 represents a unique opportunity to present and discuss the latest research on various aspects of the economy as a complex system made up of heterogeneous interacting agents.
Research from different domains – economics, psychology, sociology, computer sciences, engineering, physics – can prove useful in developing new insightful approaches to key issues such as the origin, development and mitigation of financial crises, unemployment and poverty, income and wealth inequality and many others.

Sponsors and exhibitors
Simudyne, Agent-Based Model Simulation at Enterprise Scale
Simudyne is the market leader in agent-based simulation for enterprise, allowing firms to easily create virtual environments where they can test drive their decisions, fail fast without consequences and create solutions that drive growth
Simudyne Calibration Hackathon
Algorithm designers lack a testbed of ABMs and calibration algorithms. This hackathon aims to build a model zoo of increasingly complex ABMs and calibration algorithms to accelerate transparency and development of calibration ideas.
Journal of Network Theory in Finance
An interdisciplinary journal publishing academically rigorous and practitioner-focused research on the application of network theory in finance and related fields.
The journal brings together research carried out in disparate areas within academia and other research institutions by policymakers and industry practitioners. Recently it has also broadened its scope to a larger area of research that includes complex systems studies and econophysics.
Journal of Economic Interaction and Coordination is a biannual journal in the vibrant and interdisciplinary field of agent-based approaches to economics and social sciences.
It focuses on simulating and synthesizing emergent phenomena and collective behavior in order to understand economic and social systems. Journal of Economic Interaction and Coordination is the official journal of the Association of Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents. 2017 Impact Factor: 1,250.
