About Us

Welcome to the International Workshop on Econophysics & Sociophysics.
Economic and financial markets appear to be in a permanent state of flux. Billions of agents interact with each other, giving rise to complex dynamics of economic quantities at the micro and macro level. With the availability of huge data sets, researchers can address questions at a much more granular level than was possible earlier. Fundamental questions of aggregation of actions and information, coordination, evolution of economic and financial networks have received significant importance in the current research agenda of the Econophysics literature, Parallely, Sociophysics literature has focused on large-scale social data and their inter-relations. The proposed empirical approach is a leading contender to find patterns in data, which can be very short-lived. In this meeting, we focus on questions and models to analyze such economic and social behavior.

From IGI Airport

The best way from here is to take a prepaid taxi outside the arrival terminal. Ask the prepaid booth operator to give you a receipt for your destination i.e. JNU. JNU is near Vasant Kunj and is about 15 kilometres from the Airport. Once you take the receipt, look around -there would be many taxis lined in queue. They are all prepaid taxies and would go to any place in Delhi if you show them your receipt. The approximate taxi fare from the IGI airport to JNU is between Rs. 200-300.

From Nizamuddin Railway Station

There is no direct bus for JNU from this railway station. You can take a pre-paid auto from Nizammuddin Railway Station. A prepaid auto will cost around Rs. 150.00. A taxi would come to about Rs. 400.00. There are no pre-paid taxis outside the railway station.

From New Delhi Railway Station (NDLS)

There is a direct bus from the Minto Road Bus Terminal. Minto Road Bus Terminal is located about 500 metres from the Ajmeri Gate side of NDLS. After coming out of the station yard, you can take a man-pulled rickshaw to go to Minto Road Bus Stop. The man-pulled rickshaw shouldn't cost more than Rs. 15/-. If you are reaching Minto Road Bus Stop not later than 8 p.m. in the evening and after 6 a.m. in the morning, you will get bus no. 615 - the only lifeline of students in JNU for a city ride. The bus comes direct to JNU after a one hour ride. The ticket is Rs. 10.00 for a green (non- A.C.) bus and Rs 25.00 for a red (A.C.) bus. You can also take the prepaid auto-rickshaw (for around Rs 120.00) from the prepaid counter located outside the platform on both the sides of NDLS. There are no pre-paid taxis from the railway station. A taxi costs about Rs. 400.00.

From Old Delhi Railway Station

There is no direct bus service from here. You should take taxi or an auto-rickshaw. The cost would be almost the same as for NDLS.
