Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of finance and insurance has witnessed an important transformation over the past few decades with the advent of complex network and data science techniques. The growing availability of large-scale financial and insurance data, coupled with the advancement of complex network analysis and machine learning algorithms, has opened up new possibilities for researchers and practitioners to gain deeper insights into financial and insurance markets, and to develop more accurate and efficient models for predicting market behaviour and managing risks.

This Special Issue aims to bring together cutting-edge research on the use of complex network and data science techniques in finance and insurance. The Special Issue will feature a wide range of topics, including network-based analysis of financial markets, machine learning approaches for evaluating risk in insurance, risk management using big data analytics, and many others. The Special Issue will also explore the potential applications of these techniques in areas such as insurance pricing, fraud detection, and portfolio management.

The contributions in this Special Issue will showcase the latest research and developments in the field of finance and insurance, highlighting the importance of interdisciplinary approaches that combine insights from computer science, mathematics, and economics. The Special Issue will be of interest to academics, researchers, and practitioners in the field, as well as to those who are interested in the potential applications of complex network and data science techniques in finance and insurance.
