STOC’17 Workshop on TCS and Mechanism Design

June 23, 2017

Submission deadline: May 12, 2017
Registration deadline: May 21, 2017

Mechanism Design is a subarea at the intersection of economics and algorithms that has in recent years benefited tremendously from TCS-centric approaches and the TCS toolkit. The goals of this workshop are to highlight recent theoretical advances in mechanism design, and to provide an overview of current/future research directions that are accessible to TCS researchers. The workshop will focus on the following three themes: Learning and Mechanism Design; Duality in Mechanism Design; Simple versus Optimal Mechanisms.

We are soliciting posters on any topic related to mechanism design.
