2nd International Workshop on Information Technologies in Economic Research (ITER 2013)

Skills of analytical information processing for decision making on both the micro-, macro-and industry levels can effectively be realized only by using information and communication technologies.
ITER is intended to familiarize researchers with modern ICT and mathematical methods of information processing in areas such as Business process management, Quantitative methods in economics, IT education for economists.

Submission Types and Requirements
ITER solicits full (regular) research papers, short (position) research papers, case study reports. Evaluation criteria are equivalent to the ones of the main ICTERI Conference. Please refer to for more details.

Submission Structure
ITER Submission should not exceed 16 LNCS pages (excluding attachments) and should typically have the following structure:

  • Objectives: provide a clear and concise statement of the objectives
  • Practical contribution of paper: describe the economic policy context of the problem you are addressing in the paper. Provide a brief overview of policy alternatives you are aware of and explain how your project will contribute to their evaluation and/or development of new policy instruments and/or legislation.
  • Hypotheses: a clear formulation of research hypotheses that are to be tested empirically. Please note that purely descriptive studies which do not aim at explaining observed behavior are most often rejected.
  • Literature review: a critical examination of modern literature that is directly relevant to the paper.
  • Methodology: should typically include the following elements:
  • a) Data: if relevant, describe sources and structure of existing and available data. In case of new data collection, please include, as an attachment.

    b) Theoretical model: if relevant, provide a brief formal description of your theoretical model, including the main behavioral assumptions and constraints.

    c) Evaluation: if relevant, provide an outline of the economic model you will use to test your hypotheses. Describe any other methods you will use to assess empirical evidence and relate it to your research questions. Discuss estimation problems, including lack of relevant data and/or statistical difficulties.

    d) Expected research outputs: provide an outline of final result and how they relate to the questions you are studying in the project.

  • Bibliography: alphabetical list of the literature cited in the paper.
