Call for Papers

EcoFinKG 2022 Call for Papers

Research topics include but are not limited to applications of Knowledge Graphs, in their broadest sense, to a set of financial and economic themes:

  • corporate governance and corporate economics

  • bank distress and oversight; trading models

  • credit exposure analysis

  • beneficial ownership and company control models

  • regulatory compliance

  • financial stability assessment

  • fraud detection and anti-money laundering

  • anomaly detection in financial data

  • customer and investor profiling

  • credit rating, creditworthiness & profiling

  • explainable and ethical applications in the financial and banking domain

  • risk of default propagation

  • representation of and reasoning with economic networks

  • KG/network-based economic models

Each of these topics accounts for both the center of a strong felt interest in real-world applications and a technical and scientific challenge, not only for social science scientists. Knowledge graphs and reasoning have enormous potential in facing these technical and scientific challenges.

Submission Guidelines

Short papers can include novel research works with preliminary results, vision papers outlining research issues for future work, short work-in-progress papers, describing original research that is not fully complete, yet, it deals with significant technical or theoretical challenges, and it may have a promising solution to provide and extended abstracts summarizing previously published results.
