Workshop: 8th Annual CIRANO-Sam M. Walton College of Business Workshop on Networks in Trade and Finance

CIRANO

From Friday 18 Oct 2019 to 8:30AM
To Saturday 19 Oct 2019 to 12:15PM

                   

 

The 8th annual Workshop on Networks in Trade and Finance took place on October 18 and October 19, 2019 at CIRANO. This workshop is organized jointly with CIRANO and the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, and builds on the successful CIRANO Workshops on Networks in Trade and Finance that have taken place in Montreal, Fayetteville (Arkansas, USA) and Lucca (Italy) over the last seven years.

Theme: Networks are everywhere. Global trade, supply chains, financial markets, the World Wide Web, professional and social communities are examples of interconnected systems that are important to the structure and function of the modern world. Networks are a general yet powerful means of representing patterns of connections or interactions between parts of such systems. The network approach facilitates an understanding of mechanisms and reveals patterns in the data that are difficult to see using other approaches. With this as the leitmotiv, this workshop aims to bring together a group of researchers in the related areas of trade, finance, economic development, sociology, and business, with the following goals:

  • Demonstrate the value of the network approach for generating novel insights into these areas.
  • Foster a cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas and methods within the field of researchers in these areas.
  • Explore the potential for real-world applications of the network approach that will be of value to practitioners in various fields of business and government, such as finance, logistics, healthcare, transportation, communication, economic development, and social media.
