Aims & Scope

This conference, FNET 2013 Kyoto: Financial Networks and Systemic Risk, is a satellite of STATPHYS 25, held in Seoul, Korea in July 2013.
Stability of financial systems is an important issue in the current climate of high uncertainty for the future of global economy. In this environment, statistical physics offers new analytical approaches to study economic phenomena. Research efforts have recently been conducted on many aspects of global financial systems in Europe, Japan, United States as well as in other countries. Some studies show how economic and financial complex networks are interconnected, some develop network tools to measure risk propagation through these networks, yet some concentrate on data mining, spreading the wing of researchers who explore, analyze, and investigatewide range of global economic data available today.
This conference intends to cover all these aspects, acting as a gathering place in the heart of Asia, the city of Kyoto.Some of the Topics covered are:
  • Network Analysis Tools
  • Modeling and Simulations of Financial Networks
  • Data coverage and availability
  • Risk evaluation on various networks
  • Business cycles, crisis event analysis
  • Future tasks and prospects
