Winter Term 2017/18

Advanced Topics in Economics and Computation

Type: Seminar (2 SWS)

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Markus Brill

In this seminar, we want to explore advanced topics in computational social choiceComputational Social Choice addresses problems at the interface of social choice theory with computer science. Social choice theory is the study of processes for collective decision making, such as voting rules or fair division. 

Topics are allocated before or at the kick-off meeting. Each participant prepares a manuscript (8-12 pages), gives a talk (30-45 min), and reviews the manuscript and talk of a fellow student. 

For more information and if you are interested in participating, please attend the information meeting on August 11, 2017, 2.15pm (room TEL 512). In case you have missed the information meeting, please see below.  

Presentations will take place in January 2018. 

List of potential topics: 

  • randomized social choice
  • multiwinner voting rules
  • computer-aided methods
  • barriers to manipulation
  • voting in combinatorial domains
  • incomplete information
  • judgement aggregation
  • matching under preferences
  • knockout tournaments
  • axiomatic approach and the internet
  • social choice and social networks
  • etc. 

Relevant Literature: Handbook of Computational Social Choice. Cambridge University Press, 2016.

Recommended background: Successful completion of the course Computational Social Choice (SoSe 2017) or similar background.
