JEDC Special Issue in Honour of Prof Carl Chiarella

Professor Carl Chiarella, a humble but energetic scholar, a mentor and a friend, passed away on June 16, 2016. 
Carl was a very active member and president of the Society of Computational Economics for a long time. He was a Co-Editor of the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control from 2004 to 2012.
Carl made numerous scientific achievements and important contributions to the areas of economics and finance, in particular to nonlinear dynamic economics, financial market modeling, and option pricing. He dedicated his life to enrich this academic community which he initiated and loved. 
He helped and inspired many young scholars who have been very active and productive in these areas.

The Energy and Commodity Finance RESEARCH CENTER endorses the forthcoming Special Issue of the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control to honor Carl’s academic contributions and to share our memory of Carl’s life. 

All submitted papers should have some relationship to Carl’s work or to topics he has worked on.


  • Agent Based Models
  • Market Dynamics and Oligopoly Dynamics
  • Macroeconomic Dynamics
  • Asset Pricing and Quantitative Finance

Manuscripts to be considered for the special issue should be submitted online through indicating that this is a special issue submission.
 All submissions will be screened by the Guest Editors with respect to their relation to Carl’s work.
Manuscripts for which this connection seems too loose will be treated as regular JEDC submissions. All papers will be peer-reviewed according to the usual JEDC standards.

Submission Deadline:  April 15, 2017
Expected Publication Date: Spring 2018
