The summer edition of SIGecom Exchanges has a new feature: an article profiling the CS-Econ 2016 junior job market candidates (cf. the call for profiles). The goal of this article is to (a) reduce the information inefficiency of the market and (b) present the candidates as a cohesive community. For best results, use the keyword index at the end of the article. The most obvious statistic to report: There are 30 job market candidates for 2016! Many thanks are due to Vasilis Gkatzelis for his efforts in making this happen.

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) 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 October 23-24, 2015.

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://conference.nber.org/confer/2014/MDs14/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 version by August 1, 2015.

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.

There are a limited number of spaces available for graduate students to attend the conference, though we cannot cover their costs. Please email ppathak@mit.edu a short nominating paragraph.
