Physics, economics, sociology, mathematics and computer science are fields of science which have created an interdisciplinary areas of research. Econophysics and sociophysics, thriving in the last two and a half decades, are fine examples of such interdisciplinary fields. They use knowledge, methods and tools of physics to model, explain and forecast economic and social phenomena and processes. The (thirteenth) Econophysics Colloquium (EC 2017) and the (ninth) Polish Symposium on Physics in Economy and Social Sciences (Polish acronym FENS 2017) is a meeting focused on these new areas, bringing together physicists, economists, market practitioners and researchers from many other fields. Among speakers of this international conference, there are some of the most influential researchers in the area of econophysics and sociophysics. It provides an opportunity to discuss important socio-economical problems from different points of view. This is extremely important at the present turbulent time, when market reality characterized by extremely high volatility may significantly impact our everyday life.
We have a great pleasure to announce that the forthcoming joint event that is 13th Econophysics Colloquium 2017 (EC 2017) and 9th Symposium on Physics in Economy and Social Sciences 2017 (FENS 2017) will take place in Warsaw, Poland, between 5th and 7th July 2017.
