The National Bureau of Economic Research workshop on Market Design is a forum to discuss new academic research related to the design of market institutions, broadly defined. The next meeting will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9, 2010.
We welcome new and interesting research, and are happy to see papers from a variety of fields. Participants in the past meeting covered a range of topics and methodological approaches. Last year’s program can be viewed at: http://www.nber.org/~confer/2009/MDs09/program.html
The conference does not publish proceedings or issue NBER working papers – most of the presented papers are presumed to be published later in journals.
There is no requirement to be an NBER-affiliated researcher to participate. Younger researchers are especially encouraged to submit papers. If you are interested in presenting a paper this year, please upload a PDF or Word version by September 1, 2010 to this link http://www.nber.org/confsubmit/backend/cfp?id=MDf10
Preference will be given to papers for which at least a preliminary draft is ready by the time of submission. Only authors of accepted papers will be contacted.
For presenters and discussants in North America, the NBER will cover the travel and hotel costs. For speakers from outside North America, while the NBER will not be able to cover the airfare, it can provide support for hotel accommodation.
Please forward this announcement to any potentially interested scholars. We look forward to hearing from you.
Apparently, the only “call for papers” is the link for uploading your submission (deadline:September 1st, 2010), and I’m not really sure how wide the intended scope is, beyond extrapolating from last year’s program and the identity of the organizers. In fact, I’m even not sure if participation as a listener is open to all. In any case, this sounds quite different from CS conferences, and you may read the reflections of David Pencok from last year’s conference.
