The themes of NEW2004 reflect the significant advances in the application of the complex approach in economic policy. The Conference will attempt to try and close the gap between economic theory and praxis in economic policy highlighting the effect of new paradigms on public choices and economic control.
The points under discussion are: could the complex perspective contribute to economic policy? How can we use a real multidisciplinary approach? What sort of new hints could complex methodology give to public policy? Which economic sectors are more sensible to this change of methodology?
So the key objectives of the conference will be to foster inter-disciplinary and multidisciplinary dialogue for assessing the opportunities of applications of the complex approach in economic policy.
The objective is to provide a forum where participants have access to and can discuss the many fascinating methodologies and techniques already on offer, their consequence, as well as seeing what is being developed or is just over the horizon. At present very few applicative economic controls are based on this new approach. Therefore a strong preference will be given to works on these topics. This conference will focus mostly on the emerging application domains and will promote interdisciplinary discussion evaluating the recent complex approach developments in sciences and identifying methodological approaches which can be applied in Economics. The possibility to use in the economic context (Economic Policy, Ecology, and Financial Sector) tools usually employed in physics and biology will be highlighted. New ideas fermenting in the natural sciences, loosely tied together under the heading "sciences of complexity" have stimulated new ways of thinking about economic problems.
The conference will try to develop a methodological synthesis by comparing different approaches experienced in different disciplines and ideas that are historically different in order to promote the formation of a common knowledge. Therefore people from different fields, e.g. economists, engineers, physicists, chemistry biologists, are invited to present their work on the consequence of the complexity approach for economic policy suggestions. Methodological contribution and works highlighting the difference in the traditional and complex approach and ontology for economics and control are welcome. Theoretical and applicative works on hints that the complex approach could give to economic public policy or public finance are most welcome.
