The Third Conference on Auctions, Market Mechanisms and Their Applications (AMMA 2015) 

 

 

AMMA focuses on the economic, algorithmic, technical, and practical issues that arise in developing and deploying market mechanisms. This includes, but is not limited to, theoretical and empirical examination of questions like:

  • Is a market the right mechanism for the problem? What are the externalities involved? What are the issues with central planning?

  • How should novel markets be organized? What is the "right" micro-structure for a given setting?

  • What is the best way to provide incentives? Is (real) money necessary?

  • How do markets function in artificial economies (cf. bank runs in Second Life and similar games)?

  • What protocols maximize the social value of market intermediaries?

  • Is there a need for new mechanisms for specific applications?

In addition to more traditional academic papers, we are especially interested in papers presenting experiences from the real world (case studies and new applications). Below are some potential areas, but the list is illustrative rather than exhaustive -- we welcome papers in all areas of market design. Sample areas include:

  • Content delivery networks

  • Resource allocation in networks and distributed computing

  • Online auctions and exchanges

  • Markets and incentives in crowdsourcing

  • Entrepreneurial market design

  • Prediction markets

  • Airport landing slot allocation

  • Road congestion pricing

  • School choice matching

  • Organ exchange

  • Social networks
  • Financial market design

  • Combinatorial auctions and exchanges

Papers can be submitted via EasyChair, at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=amma2015.
