Call for Papers: Stanford Institute for Theoretical Economics 2020 Summer Workshops

From LFOI Lara Fowler:

The Stanford Institute for Theoretical Economics (SITE) is pleased to announce this call for papers for workshops taking place on the Stanford campus from July 1 to September 11, 2020.

Bargaining/negotiation is one of the oldest and most common forms of transaction and interaction; at the same time, it is a complex, multi-faceted situation raising many theoretical and empirical questions. Calls for a better understanding of bargaining/negotiation settings have arisen from federal agencies and courts in recent years. Researchers from the fields of economics, psychology, organizational behavior, and law all study negotiation, but cross-discipline interaction is rare on this topic. The goal of this session will be to bring together empiricists and theorists from each of these fields. We invite frontier research studying negotiation from any angle–experimental, structural, theoretical, etc. An additional goal of the workshop will be to provide time for researchers to interact and discuss research beyond formal presentations. In addition to senior faculty members, invited presenters will include junior faculty as well as graduate students.

Organized by: Brad Larsen (Stanford), Margaret Neale (Stanford GSB), Jen Overbeck (Melbourne Business School), Xun Tang (Rice) and Shoshana Vasserman (Stanford GSB).

We invite submissions on the following topics:

  • Negotiation
  • Empirical Implementation of Theoretical Models of Strategic Interaction and Dynamic Behavior
  • Asset Pricing Theory and Computation
  • Causal Inference and Machine Learning
  • Political Economic Theory
  • Dynamic Games, Contracts and Markets
