First Cambridge Area Economics and Computation Day (CAEC'11)
Open to the Public - but Please Register by Nov 14th
Friday, November 18, 2011, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
At CSAIL, MIT 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.
We solicit submissions in all areas of Economics and Computation.
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
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 session.
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
This event is free to participants, but PLEASE register by November 14th.
