Mathematics and Computer Science of Market and Mechanism Design at MSRI Berkeley in Fall of 2023

 Here's an early announcement of a program at Berkeley's Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI). MSRI loves company, so if you have a sabbatical coming up and are interested in market design, this is worth looking into.

Mathematics and Computer Science of Market and Mechanism Design

August 21, 2023 to December 20, 2023

In recent years, economists and computer scientists have collaborated with mathematicians, operations research experts, and practitioners to improve the design and operations of real-world marketplaces. Such work relies on robust feedback between theory and practice, inspiring new mathematics closely linked – and directly applicable – to market and mechanism design questions. This cross-disciplinary program seeks to expand the domains in which existing market design solutions can be applied; address foundational questions regarding our ways of developing and evaluating mechanisms; and build useful analytic frameworks for applying theory to practical marketplace design.
