About the Event

State-of-the-art policy applications emerging from new analytical tools and techniques  show how methodological innovations and inter disciplinary approaches  such as agent-based modelling, nowcasting, machine learning, and network  analysis could contribute to better understanding of the complexity and  interaction of our economic, financial, social and environmental  systems.

Understanding people to understand the economy is an issue linked to the core mandate and rationale of NAEC.  This conference explores how internal social, emotional and rational  components of behaviour interact to generate observed, often  far-from-rational, individual behaviour. When multiple agents of this  new type move and interact, they collectively generate an astonishing  range of dynamics spanning the fields of social conflict, psychology,  public health, law, network science, and economics.

This conference will also examine new  modelling and analytical approaches to systemic challenges, highlighting  the potential of integrative economics. This will include a systemic  perspective on the environmental system, the economic system, the social  and the financial system. The aim is to demonstrate how new economic  thinking and acting are transforming the way we understand the  socio-economic system and how it is interacting with the environmental  system.
