Cambridge Area Economics and Computation Day 2013

I was asked to advertise the upcoming Second Cambridge Area Economics and Computation Day (CAEC'13);
information is available at http://caec.seas.harvard.edu/

It's being co-chaired by Turing-award winner Silvio Micali and Harvard's own Yiling Chen.

The data/location is

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

Registration is free, but you have to register in advance.

Here's the call:

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@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 session.
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,
CAEC Steering Committee
Yiling Chen, Silvio Micali, Costis Daskalakis, Andrew Lo, and David Parkes
