      Center for Complexity in Business - Final Call for Papers

      The Center for Complexity in Business invites you to submit an
      abstract for consideration for the 5th Annual Complexity in Business
      Conference. The conference will be held in Washington DC on November
      7th and 8th, 2013.

      Keynote Speakers for the 2013 Conference will be:

      John Holland
      Professor of Computer Science and Psychology
      University of Michigan

      Paul Ormerod
      Partner, Volterra Consulting and
      Fellow of the British Academy of the Social Sciences

      Submissions are encouraged that apply complex systems methods to any
      area of management science. Areas of focus include agent-based
      modeling, network science (social network analysis), nonlinear
      optimization (machine learning), spatial modeling (geographic
      information systems) and other techniques to analyze and solve
      problems that arise when large numbers of entities (consumers,
      employees, traders, firms, etc.) interact in ways that are too complex
      to be understood by more traditional management research tools.
      Interesting submissions could be based in practically any area of
      modern management, including marketing, information systems,
      operations and logistics, finance, and organization science. For
      instance, specific example topics might include:

      · Computational Consumer Behavior Modeling
      · Geography and Computational Modeling
      · Diffusion of Innovation
      · Network-based Organizational Learning
      · Advanced Data Mining and Agent-based Modeling
      · Leverage Points and Scenario Analysis
      · Understanding the Economic and Cultural Implications of
      Internet-enabled Social Media

      Preference for academic abstracts will be given to more rigorous
      analytical, empirical, and behavioral approaches. Presentations should
      be approximately 25 minutes in length.

      Abstracts may be submitted only via the conference page on EasyChair
      (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ccb2013). Abstracts
      should be no longer than 1 page. The deadline for submissions is
      Sunday, September 8th, 2013 at 23:59, Eastern-Standard Time. The
      conference committee will select abstracts on a competitive basis, and
      authors will be notified by September 15th, 2013.
