“Highlights Beyond EC” Session at EC 2019: Call for Nominations
Committee: Mohammad Akbarpour, Moshe Babaioff, Shengwu Li and Ariel Procaccia
Following a new tradition started last year, the 2019 ACM Conference on Economics and Computation (EC’19) will host a special session highlighting some of the best work in economics and computation that appears in conferences and journals other than EC. The intention of this session is to expose EC attendees to related work just beyond the boundary of their current awareness.
We seek nominations for papers on Economics and Computation that have made breakthrough advances, opened up new questions or areas, made unexpected connections, or had significant impact on practice or other sciences. Examples of conferences and journals that publish papers relevant for the special session include STOC/FOCS/SODA/ITCS, AAAI/IJCAI/AAMAS, NIPS/ICML/COLT, WWW/KDD, AER/Econometrica/JPE/QJE/RESTUD/TE/AEJ Micro/JET/GEB, and Math of OR/Management Science/Operations Research. Please email nominations toHighlightsBeyondEC@gmail.com. Anyone is welcome to contact us, but we especially invite members of PCs or editorial boards in various venues to send us suggestions. Nominations should include:
- Name of paper and authors.
- Publication venue or online working version. Preference will be given to papers that have appeared in a related conference or journal within the past two years, or have a working version circulated within the past two years.
- Short (2-3 paragraph) explanation of the paper and its importance.
- (Optional) Names of 1-3 knowledgeable experts on the area of the paper.
Note that at least one of the authors of a selected paper will be required to present their paper at EC 2019 and so should be available to travel to the conference, which is taking place in Phoenix, AZ on June 25-27, 2019.
To ensure maximum consideration, please send all nominations by December 15, 2018.
