First Cambridge Area Economics and Computation Day (CAEC'11)

Call For Participation

Friday November 18, 2011
MIT, Cambridge, MA
Patil/Kiva, room 32-G449 Stata Center

A lot of research and business activity in the Cambridge/Boston area
is engaged in economic and computational questions in regard to
understanding and developing the economics of Internet activity.
Examples of topics of interest include theoretical, modeling,
algorithmic, and empirical work on electronic commerce, networked
behavior, and social networks.

One of the main purposes of CAEC is to encourage collaboration between
local researchers. Significant emphasis will be placed on a poster
session and short talks. The overall structure of the day will involve
four longer talks, this first year by each of the steering committee,
with a short talks session and a poster session over lunch, along with
brief poster announcements.

For short talks and posters, send an email to caec11 at seas.harvard.edu
by Friday, October 28 2011, including a brief description of your
work, along with an indication of a preference for the work to be
presented as a short talk or a poster, or be considered for both. We
will select a small number of short talks and put together a poster

Decisions about the program will be made by Monday, October 31.

The suggested format for a short talk is (a) description of the
problem, (b) statement of results, and (c) discussion of open research
directions. There will be no time for setting up individual laptops
for the short-talk session, instead we will have all presentations
preloaded on a computer in the auditorium.

We expect that the event will be at no cost to participants.

We also invite interest from sponsors.
