Rigorous modelling of incentives, strategic behavior, and asymmetric information will be the common thread among these researchers. Diverse applications ranging from securities trading to school choice mechanisms will be considered.

The sessions will take place at the University of Chicago's Becker Friedman Institute and is jointly sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

The conference will begin mid-day on Wednesday, July 9 with workshop presentations on preliminary work in Room 104AB.
