1st EPNet Workshop. Production and Distribution of Food during the Roman Empire: Economic and Political Dynamics

EP-NETDas ERC-Advanced Grant Projekt EPNet, das José Remesal Rodríguez, Leiter der Forschungsgruppe CEIPAC an der Universidad de Barcelona, im Jahre 2014 bewilligt worden ist, veranstaltet seinen 1. Internationalen Workshop!

Aus dem Ankündigungstext der Veranstalter:  „(…) The EPNet research team is focused on studying the Roman Empire economic system organisation and trade network by re-analysing existing empirical data through complex network analysis, model building, and computer simulation technologies. The objective is to create an interdisciplinary experimental laboratory for the exploration, validation and falsification of existing theories, and hopefully for the formulation of new ones.
This first EPNet international workshop aims in particular at identifying a common conceptual framework in order to discuss how quantitative methods and semantic-based data management techniques can improve the understanding of Roman epigraphic data. (…).”
