Here's the memo
From: Michael Ostrovsky and Parag Pathak
To: NBER Market Design Working Group
The National Bureau of Economic Research workshop on Market Design is
a forum to discuss new academic research related to the design of
market institutions, broadly defined. The next meeting will be held at
Stanford University on October 28-29, 2016.
We welcome new and interesting research, and are happy to see papers
from a variety of fields. Participants in the past meeting covered a
range of topics and methodological approaches. Last year's program
can be viewed at: http://conference.nber.org/confer/2015/MDf15/program.html
The conference does not publish proceedings or issue NBER working
papers - most of the presented papers are presumed to be published
later in journals.
There is no requirement to be an NBER-affiliated researcher to
participate. Younger researchers are especially encouraged to submit
If you are interested in presenting a paper this year, please
upload a PDF version by August 1, 2016 to this link:
Preference will be given to papers for which at least a preliminary
draft is ready by the time of submission. Only authors of accepted
papers will be contacted.
For presenters in North America, the NBER will cover the travel and hotel
costs. For speakers from outside North America, while the NBER will not
be able to cover the airfare, it can provide support for hotel accommodation.
There are a limited number of spaces available for graduate students
to attend the conference, though we cannot cover their costs. Please
email firstname.lastname@example.org a short nominating paragraph.
Please forward this announcement to any potentially interested
scholars. We look forward to hearing from you.
