As the field of algorithmic economics has matured, various conferences, workshops, and symposia have sprung up to accommodate the burgeoning interest. Only one type of meeting known to science is still missing: a summer school.
Fortunately, this oversight is about to be corrected. Tim Roughgarden and I are organizing a summer school on algorithmic economics, to take place at Carnegie Mellon University on August 6-10, 2012. We are targeting current or soon-to-be graduate students (computer scientists and social scientists). We will select roughly 50 students to attend the summer school. All US-based students who are selected will receive full financial support; students based outside the US may apply provided they have their own funding. The application deadline is April 15.
For details about the summer school, including the list of confirmed speakers and the specifics of the (almost painless) application process, please see the summer school’s website.
