DECON 2019 : International Conference on Decision Economics
Call For Papers
Decision Economics is a growing field of research which has been given much attention by several scholars in recent decades. The International Conference on Decision Economics (DECON 2019) is a multidisciplinary international forum dedicated to advancing knowledge and improving instruction in economics, business, computer science, psychology, quantitative methods and related disciplines. To pursue this mission, DECON 2019 will facilitate the development and dissemination of knowledge in the diverse disciplines of the decision sciences in the tradition of Herbert A. Simon’s interdisciplinary heritage. Herbert A. Simon was - and still is - one of the most influential founding father of the multidisciplinary fields of decision sciences: his contributions range across administrative behaviour and organisation theory, management science and operation research, behavioural decision theory, cognitive psychology, and artificial intelligence.
Therefore, DECON 2019 focuses on theoretical, empirical and methodological investigations of socio-economic decisions made by several economic agents in a complex market economy, not entirely according to standard “rational” economic principles, but also in light of behavioural and cognitive factors, and bounded rationality. Such investigations can be methodologically focused on quantitative approaches, qualitative methods, or can take the form of insightful reviews and commentaries on best practices in social science research.
DECON 2019 dedicates itself to the interdisciplinary study of decision-making in the recognition that important decision-making takes place in a range of critical subject areas and research fields, including Economics, Finance, Information Systems, Psychology, Small and International Business, Management, Operations, and Production. We are particularly interested in analytics as an emerging synthesis of sophisticated methodology and large data systems used to guide economic decision-making in an increasingly complex business environment.

The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a frame where students can present their on going research work and meet other students and researchers, and obtain feedback on future research directions.
The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who are still far from completing their dissertation.
All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough reviewing process with the aim to provide detailed and constructive feedback. The accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the conference proceedings.
Authors of selected papers from DECON will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to special issue in Special Section published in
