Upcoming market design conferences in May and July, in Switzerland and Russia

Here are announcements to two conferences:

5th International Workshop on Matching Under Preferences
Congressi Stefano Franscini, Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland
26-29 May 2019

MATCH-UP 2019, the 5th International Workshop on Matching Under Preferences, will be held in the Congressi Stefano Franscini, Monte Verità, Ascona, Switzerland from Sunday 26 May – Wednesday 29 May 2019. It is the fifth in the series of interdisciplinary and international workshops on matching under preferences.

Matching problems with preferences occur in widespread applications such as the assignment of school-leavers to universities, junior doctors to hospitals, students to campus housing, children to schools, kidney transplant patients to donors and so on. The common thread is that individuals have preference lists over the possible outcomes and the task is to find a matching of the participants that is in some sense optimal with respect to these preferences.

The remit of this workshop is to explore matching problems with preferences from the perspective of algorithms and complexity, discrete mathematics, combinatorial optimization, game theory, mechanism design and economics, and thus a key objective is to bring together the research communities of the related areas."

"We are pleased to announce the international conference Economic Design and Algorithms in St. Petersburgorganized by the International Laboratory of Game Theory and Decision Making of Higher School of Economics, Russia.

The conference will bring together economists and computer scientists. It will focus on design problems where the methodologies of these two communities interact successfully, including but not limited to:
    Market design
    Matching and assignment
    Voting rules
    Fair division
    Information design
The conference will be preceded by a 2-days Summer School(July 5-6, 2019) which will be announced soon."
