Φ·SOE = Fachverband Physik sozio-ökonomischer Systeme
(= Physics of Socio-Economic Systems Division)
The mathematical and computer simulation of social and economic systems is receiving more and more attention. The dedicated scientific community is rapidly growing and involves, besides sociologist and economists, also physicists, mathematicians, computers scientists, biologists, engineers, and the communities working on complex systems and operations research. To keep an overview, it is important to be well connected, and to benefit from shared information platforms.
The division on "Physics of Socio-Economic Systems" (Φ·SOE, previously AKSOE/AGSOE) is committed to support the scientific exchange between the scientific disciplines involved. It has currently more than 200 members and organizes a spring conference with more than 50 contributions each year. During this conference, it features outstanding international speakers not only from socio- and econo-physics, but also from sociology and economics. Furthermore, scientists are awareded for outstanding innovative work in this field.
Call contributions (talks, posters) and nominations for the Young Scientist Award (YSA)!Next DPG spring meeting, 30.March - 4.April 2014 in Dresden, is approaching!
Please send your suggestions for invited speakers / topical speakers by 1. of August to
Suggestions for Focus Sessions (may be joint sessions with other divisions) are still possible (please contact us immediately).
The deadline for contributed talks or posters is 1. of December.
Nominations for the SKM dissertation prize (all condensed matter divisions) can also be made before 5. of December.
The deadline for nominations for the YSA (Young Scientist Award for Socio- and Econophysics) also is 1. of December, see the full announcement - please click here for the nomination form.
