Evolution and Market Behavior in Economics and Finance

2 October 2009 - 3 October 2009


The evolutionary approach to markets applies evolutionary dynamics concepts, such as selection and mutation, to study the co-evolution of agents behaviours, investors strategies, wealths and prices, in goods ad assets markets.

Aim of the workshop is to allow leading scholars in the field of evolutionary finance, and more broadly scholars who are investigating the evolutionary basis of capital and good markets, to present their most recent work and discuss their ideas for future research. The workshop will consist of 12-14 talks organized over two days. Nearly half of the talks will be given by invited speakers while the remaining contributions are selected through an open call. All the talks will be in plenary form so to promote an open discussion. The Workshop proceedings will collect the works presented at the conference and will be published by the Journal of Evolutionary Economics.

We welcome theoretical and empirical contributions related to the conference themes (more information in the registration section).
