Second Cambridge Area Economics and Computation Day (CAEC'13)

Friday, April 26, 2013
Singleton Auditorium (46-3002)
Brain and Cognitive Sciences / McGovern Building, MIT
43 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA 02139

Call For Participation

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, by Daron Acemoglu, Yiling Chen, Matthew Jackson,
and Silvio Micali, 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 caec13 at seas.harvard.edu
by Thursday April 11, 2013, 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 April 15, 2013.
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.

This event is free to participants, but PLEASE register by Monday April 22.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided for the event. There will be no
cost to participants

Looking forward to seeing you there,
