2021 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation

Special Session on Evolutionary Computation in Finance and Economics

Supported by the IEEE CIS Computational Finance and Economics Technical Committee

Aims and Scope:

Computational Finance and Economics covers a wide area of topics and techniques. The arrival of new computational methods, especially from Evolutionary Computation (EC), continually pushes the boundaries of the field outwards. That, together with the advances in available hardware and need for more research on understanding marker dynamics, have contributed to a growing interest in applying EC techniques to solve different finance and economic problems. This Special Session is dedicated to the application of Evolutionary Computation methodologies to such problems. We welcome papers from any algorithm from the EC field, as well as hybrid EC methods.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Algorithmic trading
  • Artificial stock markets
  • Agent-based models
  • Digital currencies
  • Financial forecasting
  • Financial engineering
  • Financial networks
  • Insurance
  • Portfolio selection and management
  • Pricing complex financial products
  • Risk management systems
