The Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA) is the annual conference of the Society for Economic Studies with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents.

Registration: online via Easy Chair . If you have a registration enquiry please email . Please note, we are unable to accept registrations on the day of the conference.

WEHIA 2023 represents a unique opportunity to present and discuss the latest research on various aspects of agent-based modelling, such as the use of behavioral heuristics, complex networks, micro-level interaction and macro level patterns, estimation and calibration of agent-based models.

Research from different domains – economics, psychology, sociology, environment, computer sciences, engineering, physics, and to the interdisciplinary domains of artificial intelligence – can prove useful in developing new insightful approaches to key issues such as the origin, development and mitigation of economic growth, financial volatility, digital currencies, climate change, income and wealth distribution, to the issues such as the evolution of culture, the spread of information, the emergence of violence, and many more.

The Gala dinner will be held in a historic village of Šmarje at the wine and olive oil farm a hillside in the heart of Slovenian Istria. More information about the place.
