Leitung des Workshops

  • Martin Bichler (TU München)

Inhalt des Workshops

This workshop provides a forum for IS researchers interested in the microeconomic foundation of IS and the design of economic mechanisms and respective Internet-based systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the design and economic analysis of

  • auctions markets
  • matching markets
  • coordination platforms
  • reputation mechanisms
  • crowd sourcing platforms
  • crowd funding platforms
  • sharing platforms
  • incentive systems
  • policy measures for digital markets

The workshop will feature a limited number of invited presentations (if you are interested in presenting, please contact the workshop organizers) with a discussant and intense plenum debates. Further, there will be enough time to discuss potential steps to move jointly forward in order to make this kind of research more visible among researchers, business practice, politics as well as students.
