The conference takes place under the auspices of Prof. PhDr. Jiří Lach, Ph.D., M.A., Dean of the Faculty of Arts, and it is intended for the members of academic staff, university students and other experts as well as businesspeople. This year’s topic of “people in economics - decisions, behavior and normative models“ was chosen to inspire a debate on the role of people in the design of formal models in economics and finance, in the building of economical and managerial theory and its verification and in the practical applications of economic models in real-life decision making. We therefore invite all researchers and practitioners dealing with these issues, as well as all the experts from various fields of science interested in economical topics to participate in this event and thereby to join the discussion.

The conference program is divided into the following sections:

  • Knowledge management, general management and marketing
  • Public economy, taxes and finance
  • Business
  • Young economists – a section for all students of economics

Conference proceedings will be published electronically with an ISBN and sent to Web of Science to be evaluated.
