4th International Workshop on Information technologies in economic research (ITER 2015)

Description of the Theme of the Workshop ITER

Expanding of IT has very big influence on business process, e-commerce, economic education, and research with using of modeling, processing and presentation of economical data. Implementation of IT in economic research is a bridge between researchers and practitioners worldwide working in such diverse areas as IT and economics. Workshop is devoted to two main themes: 1) Application of IT in business, economics and research; 2) Economics of research and developments in IT industries.
Goals of workshop are 1) to help economists to use IT in economic research, simulation and forecasting; 2) to enhance usage of IT for coordination and communications problems in market economy.

A description of the relation between the theme of the workshop and of ICTERI 2015

The growth of IT development is so high that economists often do not imagine the full extent of all the opportunities offered by the use of new information technologies. At that, even the most advanced and useful information technology does not compatible with the market forces and the laws of economics.
