SimScience 2025

The Third International Workshop on Simulation Science (SimScience) will take place from May 7 to May 9, 2025 in Clausthal-Zellerfeld.

Simulation-based analysis and engineering techniques are traditionally a research focus of Clausthal University of Technology and University of Göttingen, which is especially reflected in their common interdisciplinary research cluster “Simulation Science Center Clausthal-Göttingen”. The third “Clausthal-Göttingen International Workshop on Simulation Science” aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to report on the latest advances on simulation science. Artificial Intelligence is a powerful tool that in many cases allows more rapid and more efficient evaluation and prediction of research data compared to conventional methods. However, the predictive power of artificial intelligence depends on the availability of large data sets. Therefore, there are various scenarios in different disciplines including natural science, materials engineering, economy and social sciences in which simulations are needed. The workshop therefore focuses on both simulations and AI and their interaction.

Mathematics of Gas Transport and Energy MOG 2024

We are pleased to announce the fourth edition of the international conference „Mathematics of Gas Transport and Energy MOG 2024″ on October, the 10th and 11th, 2024, in Regensburg, Germany.

The two-day conference aims at connecting leading experts in applied mathematics with leading stakeholders from the industry and the public sector that are concerned with the transition of the energy system. It aims at stimulating fruitful discussions between academic partners and representatives from other sectors on today´s broad challenges in the energy sector, taking into account the transition from natural gas to hydrogen networks, its coupling with electricity, and related topics. More information and registration (until 15 July 2024) is available under

The conference is organized by the German Collaborative Research Center TRR154 („Mathematical Modelling, Simulation and Optimization using the Example of Gas Networks“) funded by the German Science foundation, see

Regensburg is located at the Danube’s northernmost point, in between the Gäuboden region and the two low mountain ranges Fränkische Jura and Bayerischer Wald. The international airports Nuremberg and Munich are only a 60 minute drive away. Due to its unique status as „the only authentically preserved large medieval city in Germany“ the Old Town Regensburg with Stadtamhof“ was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006.

30th Annual Meeting of the German Finance Association (DGF)

We cordially invite researchers and practitioners to participate in the 30th Annual Meeting of the German Finance Association (DGF) organized by the Department of Finance of RWTH Aachen University between September 26 and 28, 2024 

Call for Papers

We invite submissions of recent research papers. Guidelines for the submission are:

  • Submissions are only accepted through the online submission system (
  • The submission period is from February 01, 2024, to April 30, 2024 (midnight, CET).
  • Submissions are subject to a double-blind review process. Thus, papers have to be submitted in an anonymous format (no reference(s) to author(s) or affiliation(s)).
  • Only full papers in English are considered for review. Papers should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 120 words.
  • Submissions accepted for presentation are also eligible for a special issue of the Journal of Business Economics comprising among other things Stefan Nagel’s keynote speech (see separate call on the Journal homepage; independent submission required, this is not an official publication outlet of the DGF)

We are particularly proud to announce that this year’s keynote speech will be delivered by Stefan Nagel. Following the keynote, participants will have the opportunity to join a city tour of the beautiful and historic city of Aachen, followed by the conference dinner at City Hall Aachen.

The best paper and the best paper exclusively written by a PhD student will both be awarded prizes.

This year’s conference will include the following special sessions:

Deutsche Bundesbank Session on Banking Supervision & Regulation:

Topics to be addressed in this dedicated session include the linkages between bank and non-bank financial intermediaries, credit, sovereign and ESG risk, deposit stability and liquidity risk, interest rate risk and asset/liability management, stress testing and risk models, systemic risk and financial stability, as well as big data and machine learning in financial regulation.

VR-Bank eG  Region Aachen Session on Household Finance and Retail Banking:

This dedicated session centers around research related to the financial decision-making of private households. The topics covered include consumer behavior in retail banking, financial inclusion, literacy, and accessibility, technological innovations in personal finance, household expectations regarding economic issues, household consumption and saving behavior, as well as behavioral economics in household finance.

Session on Stochastic Finance and Statistics:

The dynamic nature of financial markets and the inherent yet changing risks, ranging from systemic to asset-specific risks, require reliable and sophisticated methods to support the management of risk exposures and mitigation of financial risks. Therefore, this session is dedicated to exploring how one can measure, detect, surveil, and infer changes in the stochastic structure of financial data and risks.

Session on Behavioral and Experimental Finance:

Behavioral perspectives are now being integrated into various fields to enhance our understanding of decision-making and market outcomes. Experiments have become a popular method for causally studying these behavioral questions. This session aims to bring together work from all fields of finance where research is conducted with a behavioral perspective and/or through experimental methods. The goal is to better understand when behavioral approaches are necessary to accurately describe behavior and when such descriptions can be based on standard assumptions.

Early bird registration for conference participation is from May 1 to July 31, 2024. Late registration starts September 1 and is available until September 20, 2024.

We are looking forward to an interesting conference and to welcoming you to Aachen!

Kind regards,

Wolfgang Breuer                           Andreas Knetsch                   Philipp Schmitz
