The conference series entitled EconoFis focuses on the application of physics to the analysis of complex economic systems. The scope is to gather physicists and economists to exchange viewpoints and experiences in order to develop and establish this research area in Brazil.

In its first two editions, EconoFis 2007 and EconoFis 2010 , the conference was jointly organized by the Physics Department of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, DF-PUC-Rio, and the Physics Institute of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, IF-UFRJ. The Institute of Theoretical Physics IFT-UNESP also participated in the organization of the event in 2010. In both opportunities the conference brought together over 150 participants among students and academics of different fields, market analysts and practitioners.

In this third edition in 2014, the conference will take place in Rio de Janeiro, and will also be supported by the Brazilian Center for Physics Research (CBPF) in Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

The conference program includes tutorial seminars on some main subjects of Econophysics. With this aim, we invited distinguished international researches. The conference also presents some representative Brazilian research groups in Econophysics, through invited oral contributions. Other participants are encouraged to show their work in poster format.

We also invited economists that develop quantitative analysis in order to pursue solid conceptual Economic grounds. A round table is also sketched to discuss the interface between Physics and the Market modus operandi.

The suggested topics of the meeting are:

- Statistical physics of fluctuating economic observables

- Market behavior and forecasting

- Microstructure of financial markets

- Risk assessment and management

- Market complex dynamics

- Agent-based models of socio-economic systems

- Socio-economic complex networks
