IJMABS special issue on Simulation

IJMABS (Journal of Markets and Business Systems) special issue on Simulation

The International Journal of Markets and Business Systems (a pretty new Journal edited by Inderscience - details here http://www.inderscience.com/jhome.php?jcode=ijmabs) is proud to announce a Special Issue dedicated to “computer modeling, business games and scenario analysis”.

Send us your manifestation of interest to submit a paper by initially providing our Guest Editor Stefano Armenia (Questo indirizzo email è protetto dagli spambots.

IWcee16 - IV International Workshop on Computational Economics and Econometrics


IWcee16, Rome, June 30 - July 1, 2016 - IRCrES-CNR

National Research Council of Italy

Deadline for abstract: April 15, 2016

IWcee16 main topic this year will be: "Coping with Uncertainty in Complex Socio-Economic Systems"

Economies are sophisticated social systems characterized by pervasive uncertainty, which makes agents' behaviours and systemic outcomes difficult to predict. The study of such systems thus requires new datasets and more reliable statistical techniques. This is a necessary requirement for enabling policymakers to assess and regulate economic performance vis-à-vis uncertainty. IWcee16 aims to raise a rigorous scientific debate on the many interconnections between uncertainty and socio-economic performance, by focusing on the tools offered by modern quantitative socio-economic science.

Research Assistant Needed: Impacts of Trade, Fiscal and Monetary Policy on Climate Change

Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future and the Global Economic Governance Initiative are seeking a research assistant to work on a modeling project focused on climate change risks and their implications for financial stability, economic growth, and beyond. The project will deploy a System Dynamics – Agent Based model to simulate the role of green fiscal and monetary policies within the context of international trade and climate agreements (e.g., the TTIP agreement under discussion between the US and the EU). Additionally, the project will look at the role of climate stranded assets on systemic risk through the implementation of climate stress tests, VAR and network analysis to inform climate finance policies.

The research assistant will work closely with Dr. Irene Monasterolo and Prof. Kevin Gallagher, and will be part of an international research team involving research institutions in Italy, Switzerland, the UK, and international organizations and multilateral development banks such as InterAmerican Development Bank, the World Bank and the European Investment Bank.

Consultazione pubblica del Framework Nazionale per la Cyber Security

Partita il 30 novembre la consultazione pubblica del Framework Nazionale per la Cyber Security realizzato da CIS-Sapienza e dal Laboratorio Nazionale di Cyber Security

Il Cyber Security Report 2015 presenterà un Framework Nazionale per la Cyber Security. Lo scopo del documento è quello di offrire alle organizzazioni un approccio omogeneo per affrontare la cyber security, al fine di ridurre il rischio legato alla minaccia cyber. L'approccio del framework è intimamente legato a una analisi del rischio e non a standard tecnologici. 

Il framework si fonda sul noto "Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity" emanato dal NIST per poi essere ampliato ed attualizzato al contesto italiano. Offrirà una guida per incrementare il livello di cyber security per la Piccola Media Impresa italiana e raccomandazioni per il top management di grandi aziende e infrastrutture critiche su come organizzare processi di cyber security risk management.

Announcement on some important EU SD-related conferences

The SD Italian Chapter has since a few years been able to "infiltrate" SD into several management and systems theory related conferences in EU.In 2016, EURAM (the European academy of management, counterpart of the American AOM), will be held in Paris during the first week of June 2016. Three tracks on simulation, SD and ABM have been organised, and namely:
