Every year (since 2009) in the fall, all of the folks in southern California that work at the border of economics and CS/EE get together for the Network Economics and Game Theory (NEGT) workshop. The hosting duties rotate between USC, UCLA, and Caltech, and this year the honor falls to us here at Caltech.
We’ve just finished finalizing the program — and it’s a great one. So, if you’re in the area, come on by!
We’re holding it on Nov 20-21. We’ll have a very reasonable start time each day of 10am so that folks try to avoid LA traffic in the morning, and we’ll end both days with a reception so that you can avoid traffic on the way home, too. Markus Mobius (MSR) and Tim Roughgarden (Stanford) are the keynotes, and then we have a great list of invited speakers from all across Southern California to round out the program.
Attendance is free, but please register early, if possible, so that we can plan the catering! Also, we’ll have a poster session for students to present work (and work-in-progress). If you’re interested, just sign up when you register.
