Annual Conference 2020


Padova, September 18, 2020


The meeting is organized and supported by the Department of Mathematics “Tullio Levi-Civita” of the University of Padova.
As in the AMASES established tradition, the purpose of the meeting is to stimulate discussion among scholars and practitioners from Italy and all around the world, on different aspects of Mathematics applied to Economic and Social Sciences. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the AMASES 2020 conference is organized in remote mode and is reduced in size. Nevertheless, some of the activities characterizing the AMASES annual conferences are guaranteed: Invited Speakers, “Best Paper Award” Special Session, General Assembly. The language of the conference is English.
