We are a group of people interested in the intersection of computer science and economics (and the social sciences more broadly) and the impact of this interplay on decisions in information technology and digital business. This includes applying techniques from computer science and optimization to economics -- for example, using computation to design market clearing mechanisms and to implement efficient allocation and pricing in them -- as well as applying techniques from economics to computer science -- for example, designing incentives for users of networked computer systems and social networks.
