About ADFOCS
ADFOCS is an international summer school that has been held annually for the last twenty years at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPII) in Saarbruecken, Germany. It is organized as part of the activities of the MPII, in particular the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS), MPII’s graduate program. The purpose of this summer school is to introduce young researchers to topics which are the focus of current research in theoretical computer science. We bring together leading researchers in the field and international participants at the graduate level and above. This year’s focus is on:

*** Market Design and Computational Fair Division ***
