Conference on Economic Design

Posted on 6 June 2017

Our Department and Centre for Mechanism and Institution Design will host a major international Conference on Economic Design on the 14th - 16th June, 2017.

The conference deals with a broad range of important economic and social problems facing today’s society from school choice to college admission, from auction and procurement to bargaining and negotiation, from fair division and sharing to growth and development, from refugee assignment to social diversity, from market processes to provision of public goods and kidney exchange, and from election and voting to social dilemmas, etc.

There will be three keynote addresses and 185 parallel session lectures. There are nearly 200 delegates from the UK, Continental Europe, North America, Middle East and Far East Asia to participate in the conference.

The conference is organised and chaired by our colleagues Professor Zaifu Yang, and Dr Yuan Ju, and our former colleague, Professor Paul Schweinzer of Alpen-Adria University, Austria, working together with six colleagues as local organisers.

The conference scientific committee consists of 41 leading experts from all the world.

All lectures will be open to the public but the delegates have the priority to have their seats.
