Dynamic Pricing Workshop, Santiago, Dec 11-15, 2017

Dynamic Pricing Workshop

+++ Schedule +++ Venue +++ Registration +++


This workshop is a venue to discuss the latest questions and methods arising in dynamic pricing decisions, both from a theoretical and applied perspective. Central to the workshop is the multidisciplinary nature of the area so that an important goal is to bring together top researchers from three related scientific communities: Economists working on issues related to dynamic mechanism design; Computer scientists working on problems related to algorithmic pricing; and researchers from operations research working on revenue management. The workshop will feature three short courses of two hours each by experts in each of the three fields and a number of short talks delivered by the participants. Ample time for informal discussions will be left in order to foster cross-flied collaborations. The program will thus be very flexible and mostly arranged on demand. There will be slots to talk for all participants that want to do so.

Dirk Bergemann is Douglass and Marian Campbell Professor of Economics at Yale University. Dirk received his B.A. in economics at J.W. Goethe University in Frankfurt and his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania in. He joined Yale in 1995 as an assistant professor, having previously served as a faculty member at Princeton University. He has been affiliated with the Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics at Yale since 1996 and a fellow of the Econometric Society since 2007. His research is concerned with game theory, contract theory and mechanism design.

Jason D. Hartline received his Ph.D. in 2003 from the University of Washington under the supervision of Anna Karlin. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University under the supervision of Avrim Blum; and subsequently a researcher at Microsoft Research in Silicon Valley. He joined Northwestern University in 2008 where he is an associate professor of computer science. His research introduces design and analysis methodologies from computer science to understand and improve outcomes of economic systems. Optimal behavior and outcomes in complex environments are complex and, therefore, should not be expected; instead, the theory of approximation can show that simple and natural behaviors are approximately optimal in complex environments.

Garrett van Ryzin is the Paul M. Montrone Professor of Decision, Risk, and Operations at the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and Chair of the Decision, Risk, and Operations Division of the School. His research interests include analytical pricing, stochastic modeling, and operations management. He is coauthor of the book The Theory and Practice of Revenue Management, which won the 2005 Lanchester prize for best published work in operations research.
