Seminar Mechanism Design

Welcome to the seminar on mechanism design! I am looking forward to introduce you to mechanism design. To attend this seminar, you have to register with the ISC and get an assignment.

Everybody has four weeks to write a seminar thesis, do a presentation of 20 minutes and discuss actively the presentations of the other students.

A solid knowledge of game theory is beneficial (Micro I and II at least). If there are any questions, please contact Prof. Matthias Lang.

First Meeting

We will meet on Friday, July 19th, 10:00 to discuss the organisation of the seminar and potential topics.
