Call For Papers


Inspired by the research work of Alan M. Turing, the 2nd International Conference on Decision Economics (DECON 2020) is devoted to the 70th anniversary of the Turing’s Test (1950) and the intellectual setting for what could be called “Turing’s economics”. To this purpose, DECON 2020 provides a multidisciplinary forum in order to advancing knowledge and thereby improving standards in social sciences, cognitive sciences, quantitative methods, and related areas. To pursue this mission, DECON 2020 encourages the development and dissemination of the mathematical foundations of economic theorizing underpinned by the work of Alan Turing. Primary emphasis is placed on original research exploring topics in computation and computability in economics; logic and algorithmic social sciences research; experimetrics research in economics; epistemology of computation, experimentation, and dynamics in economics; cognitive economics; computational complexity theory; evolutionary and behavioural game theory; decision sciences and the economics of uncertainty; microfoundations and micro‐ macro relationships; boundedly rational choice and satisficing decisions; decision support systems and business decisions.

DECON 2020 is structured into three Sessions: (i) the main track is devised to consider contributions related to the Turing’s Test and implications for economics; (ii) a special session is entitled “Decision Cognitive Science” (DECOGN) and is dedicated to decision-making and Cognitive Sciences; (iii) another special session is entitled “Edgeconomics” (EDGECON) and is focused on the edge of economics.


Different authors of different papers presented during the Conference will be awarded with the best paper prize and the best paper application prize. Furthermore, being DECON informed by a commitment to support and advance some of the United Nations principles, international awards will be delivered in the name of science, peace, and the intercultural dialogue in partnership with the UN.

DECON 2020 facilitates cross‐fertilization between theories, methodologies, and applications of decision‐making and mathematical foundations of economics. All accepted papers will be included in a special book published in the Computational Intelligence and Complexity series by Springer‐Nature.

Additionally, DECON’s Organizing Committee has made a proposal for a special issue on “The universal computation, logical foundations of mathematics, and cognitive sciences: What have economists learned?” to the editorial board of a distinguished Journal. If approved, participants in DECON 2020 will have the opportunity to submit their extended papers for publication in it.

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 will be offered the opportunity to submit an extended version of their papers to a journal special issue.

-The research that receives an award for best paper on the topic of Data Fusion, will be sent to Information Fusion (ISSN: 1566-2535, JCR 2018: 10.716) and submitted for a quick review.

-Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2020 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Section published in Neurocomputing (JCR 2018 Neurocomputing: 4.072).

-Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2020 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Section published in Electronics (JCR 2018 Electronics: 1.764 (Q3)).

-Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2020 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Section published in IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society.

-Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2020 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Section published in Smart Cities.

-Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2020 and Co-located Events will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a Special Issue published in ADCAIJ (ISSN: 2255-2863, indexed in DOAJ, ProQuest, Scholar, WorldCat, Dialnet, Sherpa ROMEO, Dulcinea, UlrichWeb, Emerging Sources Citation Index of Thomson Reuters, BASE y Academic Journals Database)


Electronics MDPI will award the best paper with 300 CHF
