About the seminar

The Agent-Based Models in Economics (ABMecon) Online Seminar is a monthly virtual seminar organized by Olivier Simard-Casanova with the financial and material support of Aléryon Science. It showcases research on agent-based modeling in economics. The seminar is open to all researchers from all over the world, including grad students. Anyone can attend for free — the costs are currently covered by Aléryon Science.

Each presentation lasts 60 minutes with 35 minutes for the presentation and 25 minutes for the discussion with the floor.

Submit a presentation

If you have a work in progress featuring agent-based modeling in economics and would like to present it to a global audience, feel free to submit a presentation (including if you're a grad student). I'm considering submissions on a rolling basis, unless specificed otherwise there is no deadline.

To submit a presentation, send me an email at [email protected] with the following details:

  • "ABMecon Online Seminar submission" as the subject of the email
  • the most recent version of your work (in PDF format)
  • an abstract of your work and an email address (for the public annoucement)
  • a link to your professional website and/or your resume (in PDF format)
  • a short text explaining how it would be beneficial for you to present in the seminar
Please only submit one presentation at a time

Based on the volume of submissions I'll get back at you with a decision ASAP. You can reasonably expect a few weeks of wait time. Unless you haven't heard back from me way outside of this wait time window, please avoid asking for updates.

Thank you for your interest!
