Market design in honour of John Ledyard in Sydney

Here in the Southern hemisphere, there are two simultaneous conferences on market design. I'm at the one in Sao Paulo in honor of Marilda Sotomayor, and it turns out they just had one in honor of John Ledyard at the University of Technology's Centre for Policy and Market Design in Sydney.
