Information theory and applications

I'll be speaking today in San Diego at a conference on Information theory and applications

 Here's the program.

I'll give a lunchtime talk on "Market Design," in which I'll introduce some of the big themes of market design, with the focus on creating marketplaces in which a lot of private information that is distributed among many participants can be aggregated to help arrive at efficient outcomes.

That will be followed by a session on Matching Based Market Design, organized by Vijay Vazirani,:

Chair: Aranyak Mehta, Google Research
2:15 “Recent developments in kidney exchange,” Alvin Roth
2:35 “Online Matching and Ad Allocation,” Aranyak Mehta
 2:55 “Simple Auctions with Simple Strategies,” Nikhil Devanur*, Jamie Morgenstern, Vasilis Syrgkanis, Matt Weinberg
3:15 “School choice,” Atila Abdulkadiroglu
