Winter Term 2018/19

Advanced Topics in Economics and Computation

Type: Seminar (2 SWS)

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Markus Brill [1], Anne-Marie George [2]

Information Meeting: Monday, 22 October 2018, 16.15-17.00, TEL 512  [slides [3]]

Deadline for registration: Monday, 5 November 2018

In this seminar, we want to explore advanced topics in computational social choice. Computational Social Choice [4] 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 October 22nd. In case you have missed the information meeting, please contact Anne-Marie George [5].

Presentations will take place in January 2019. 

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 [6]. Cambridge University Press, 2016.
  • Trends in Computational Social Choice [7]. AI Access, 2017.


Recommended background: Successful completion of the course Computational Social Choice [8] or similar background.

Research Colloquium on Economics and Computation

Type: Seminar (2 SWS)

Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Markus Brill [10]

In this seminar, researchers from our group (and invited guests) present results either from their own research, or from research papers that are relevant for the research of the group. The topics are from the area of economics and computation (a.k.a. algorithmic economics), which includes---but is not limited to---research fields like algorithmic game theory, algorithmic mechanism design, and computational social choice. The seminar is an excellent opportunity for advanced students to get in touch with current topics in this research field, or to present their own results in this context.

Recommended background: Advanced students (e.g., students currently writing a Master's thesis supervised by our group). 

Registration: If you are interested in participating, send an email to Markus Brill [11] and describe your background in economics and computation.
