Algorithmic Game Theory (AGT) has made important theoretical contributions benefiting both Economics and Computer Science. It has also had significant practical impact, in a broad range of applications including online, matching and assignment markets, Internet advertising, information diffusion, airport security, etc. This workshop will showcase the impact of  AGT on practice, and explore avenues for increasing the field's practical impact, including connections to machine learning, data science, and financial markets.

All talks will be recorded. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop_economics2 [at] (at this address.)
