Call for Papers

Downloadable, suitable for printing and posting, in PDF format

The meetings will embrace quantitative and qualitative methods in economics, finance, and decision making. Papers are solicited that deal significantly with computational aspects of such topics as: linear and nonlinear systems, econometrics, statistics, stochastic control, automatic differentiation, nonlinear model solution methods, mathematical programming algorithms, variational inequality and other algorithms for computing equilibria, algorithmic models of decision making including genetic algorithms, auction modeling, neural networks, artificial intelligence, computability and complexity theory, parallel and supercomputing, qualitative reasoning and models including qualitative simulation. Topics in computational finance are exemplified by: complex options modeling, computational asset liability issues, computational issues in modeling fixed income securities, risk assesment simulation, data mining and pattern recognition, high frequency data, information technologies, databases, intelligent user interfaces, network pricing, decision support systems and management information.


Abstracts are to be submitted by January 15, 1999.
Final papers should be available by May 1, 1999.
