Keynote Speakers:

- Barkley Rosser (James Madison University, USA)
- Paul Wang (Duke University, USA)
- Akira Namatame (National Defense Academy, Japan)

Aim and Purpose:

The purpose of our conference is to carry on the legacy of Herbert Simon, who broke down the conventional distinctions among economics, computer science and cognitive psychology, and initiated new interdisciplinary research field that we now refer to as computational information in economics. Since Year 2000, CIEF has prosperously become a world-wide forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and latest progress in two promising research areas - Computational Information (CI) and Object-Based Modeling and Simulation (OBMS). With the fast growth of these two research approaches, in depth, CIEF has now accommodated not only object-oriented computational economics (OCE) but also studies in econometrics, experimental economics, behavioral economics, neuroeconomics, and econophysics. In width, CIEF has extended the areas of interest from intelligent computing in economics and finance to management and social sciences.

Scope and Areas:

Special session proposals devoted to the above purpose are solicited. Papers describing new techniques and/or novel applications related to, but not limited to, the following topics are invited. Practical experiences with state-of-the-art AI methodologies applied to Economic or Finance are preferably welcomed.
