The workshop is open to both young and experienced researchers, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral researchers, and professionals from business, government and non-governmental institutions.
The New Economy is commonly believed to have started in the late 1990s, when high tech tools, particularly the internet and increasingly powerful and fast computers, made their way into the consumer and business marketplace. The New Economy has been seen as a shift from a manufacturing and commodity-based economy to one that uses technology to create new products and services at a rate that the traditional manufacturing economy could not match. It is also linked with the so-called Industrial Revolution 4.0.In particular we welcome papers related to the following topics:
