What is ITS?

ITS works as both an online and offline community where academic, business, and government researchers, industry practitioners, policy makers, and international bodies can consolidate, trade, and discuss specific research and information as they develop.

The main way we achieve that goal is by providing live forums, the biggest of which are our biennial international conferences, where we respond to specific needs as they develop. Beyond that, we also have a membership journal, newsletter, and this website.

Celebrating a ‘renaissance’ economist

James Alleman (University of Colorado, Boulder), Paul Rappoport (Temple University, Philadelphia) and Mohsen Hamoudia (Orange, Paris) have edited a Festschrift in honor of Gary Madden.

Professor Gary Madden was a “renaissance” economist. He worked in the areas of applied microeconomics, econometrics, forecasting and policy research, primary in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector. Gary’s primary research area concerned the economic modelling of digital networks.
