Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents

The Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA) is the annual conference of the Society for Economic Studies with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents. WEHIA 2019 represents a unique opportunity to present and discuss the latest research on various aspects of the economy as a complex system made up of heterogeneous interacting agents. Research from different domains – economics, psychology, sociology, computer sciences, engineering, physics – can prove useful in developing new insightful approaches to key issues such as the origin, development and mitigation of financial crises, unemployment and poverty, income and wealth inequality and many others.


  • Agent Based Models (ABMs): theory and computation, calibration and estimation
  • Macroeconomic ABMs: emergence of financially driven business fluctuations and crises, growth and technical change, sustainable development and climate change
  • DSGE models with heterogeneous agents
  • Microeconomic ABMs: emergence of market structure
  • Economic and financial networks
  • Econophysics: application of statistical physics methods and percolation theory to economic issues
  • Experimental economics
  • Bounded rationality and learning
  • Evolutionary game theory
  • Spatial agent models and urban complex adaptive systems
  • Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in Economics

Organising committee:

• Giulia Iori (City, University of London)

• Saqib Jafarey (City, University of London

WEHIA PhD Summer School 2019

Following WEHIA’s recent successful tradition, the 2019 conference will be preceded by a two-days PhD School, which will be held at University College London on June 21-22, just before the beginning of the main conference. The School is aimed at  PhD students and young researchers.

The theme of the 2019 School will be  data-driven approaches to economic analysis, with particular focus on technology-related emerging risks and urban economics.
