On behalf of CIRANO and the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, the organizers welcome you to the 4th Annual Workshop on Networks in Trade and Finance on Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3, 2015 in CIRANO in Montreal . This conference builds on the successful CIRANO Workshops on Networks in Trade and Finance that took place in Montreal in 2013 and 2014.
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.
