We are sorry to announce that, due to the current epidemic of Covid-19, we decided to postpone ASCOPE 2020 to a new date yet to define.
France is currently under quarantine and locked in for an indefinite time. Moreover, in light of the global situation, there are reasonable chances that we will not be able to meet the sufficient conditions for maintaining an international conference in June 2020. As soon as we are able to re-schedule the conference at a new date, we shall come back to you with the new calendar and deadlines.
In order to avoid evaluating abstracts that at the time of the conference might be already outdated, we decided to start a new selection procedure in the future. Of course, we will be delighted to receive a new proposal from you as soon as we will open a new call for papers.
Waiting for clearer signals, we wish the best to you and your family and look forward to seeing you soon in Paris.
Best regards and take care !
The ASCOPE 2020 Organizing Committee
The 2008 global financial crisis and the subsequent economic stagnation – characterized by low rates of growth, massive destruction of productive capacities and mass unemployment – revealed a fundamental crisis of the economic theories that failed to predict it and to provide convincing explanations of their causes. The emergence of old and new risks, including a new global financial crisis and a worldwide ecological crisis, highlight the need for alternative theoretical and empirical methodologies able to cope with the inherent complexity of economic and social systems, for instance in order to explain and predict extreme events such as natural catastrophes, financial crisis and persistent economic recessions.
At the crossroads of economics, social sciences and computer science (namely multi-agent systems), the agent-based methodology (ABM hereafter) is an important and promising candidate for a theoretical and methodological revolution. Social sciences are observing an increasing interest towards this methodology, which is creating strong linkages between complementary fields of knowledge, including economic, sociological, psychological and natural sciences. Within the academic community of economists, the stock flow consistent (SFC hereafter) methodology is also leading a successful competition to standard paradigms when it comes to explain and predict economic, financial and ecological collapses. We observe in the recent years a rising communication between these two approaches, leading to the emergence of a new agent-based, stock flow consistent (AB-SFC) methodological framework. The AB and SFC methodologies, which benefited initially of a large disappointment towards standard methodologies and a growing demand for alternatives, are now facing a new challenge: to explain and provide policy guidelines to cope with the major contemporary concerns - namely, the risk of a secular economic stagnation and a worldwide ecological crisis - with credibility and scientific rigor.
ASCOPE2020 is the result of the cooperation between the two networks in ABM and SFC Modelling: MACME- Modelling and Analysis of Complex Monetary Economies, and MAGECO- Modélisation à base d’AGents pour l’ECOnomie. It aims to be a fundamental moment in this crucial phase, by allowing researchers from all over the world to discuss their research findings and creating linkages and networks within the AB and/or SFC community. Theoretical approaches, as well as technical and methodological contributions are highly welcome.
In particular, we invite researchers working on Agent-based and/or Stock-flow consistent models in various fields – including economics, sociology, psychology and computer sciences – to submit contributions on the following topics:
Please note that only papers using the AB and/or the SFC methodology will be reviewed.
Please submit an extended abstract (1 page minimum, 2 pages max excluding references)
in pdf format to email@example.com (click the link to submit !)
