This publication offers the works and examine findings of physicists, economists, mathematicians, statisticians, and fiscal engineers who've undertaken data-driven modelling of marketplace dynamics and different empirical experiences within the box of Econophysics. in the course of contemporary a long time, the monetary marketplace panorama has replaced dramatically with the deregulation of markets and the becoming complexity of goods. The ever-increasing pace and reducing expenses of computational strength and networks have resulted in the emergence of massive databases. the provision of those information may still enable the improvement of types which are higher based empirically, and econophysicists have therefore been advocating that one may still count totally on the empirical observations which will build types and validate them. the new turmoil in monetary markets and the 2008 crash seem to provide a powerful reason for brand new versions and methods. The Econophysics group therefore has an immense destiny function to play in marketplace modelling. The Econophys-Kolkata VIII convention complaints are dedicated to the presentation of many such modelling efforts and handle fresh advancements. a few major researchers from around the globe document on their contemporary paintings, touch upon the newest concerns, and assessment the modern literature.
