Posted on 2013/07/18. Filed under: 綜合 |

The Chair of Systems Design in ETH Zurich, and the Centre for Research
on Direct Democracy in Universität Zürich offer a position for a PhD
student working in the project "The Role of Emotional Interactions in
the Polarization of Opinions in Participatory Media" funded by the
Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF), starting as soon as possible.

This project brings together the fields of social science, computer
science, and statistical physics to advance in the understanding of
the polarization of opinions and emotions during online interaction.
The project has a special emphasis in the dynamics of emotions in
political discussions.

The candidate is expected to collaborate in the following tasks of the
project:

– Analysis of emotional interaction and opinion polarization in large
datasets of online discussions

– Explore universal patterns of polarization and popularity in online
participatory media (fora, news sites, social networks…)

– Analyze differences in the online interaction of online
subcommunities depending on their political orientation

– Design, simulate, and analyze agent-based models of online
interaction that reproduce the observed phenomena

Requirements:

– MSc degree or equivalent in psychology, sociology, or political science

– ability to combine modeling and statistical data analysis (e.g. R,
Matlab)

– ability to develop formal models and computer simulations (e.g.
Java, Python)

– good knowledge about graph algorithms and social network analysis is
a plus

– strong abilities to communicate in an interdisciplinary scientific
environment

– interest in becoming acquainted with methods from physics,
economics, and computer science

We offer excellent working conditions and collaboration with a lively
team in both institutions, as well as with leading institutions worldwide.

ESA-announce Reminder- SPI First Annual Conference Call for Papers

Posted on 2013/07/12. Filed under: 綜合 | 標籤: |

Dear all,

John List, Michael Price and I are hosting the first annual Science of Philanthropy conference at the University of Chicago on October 18th-19th, 2013 (all day Friday the 18th and the morning of Saturday the 19th).

We would like to invite presentations that use laboratory or field experiments to investigate social preferences that shape philanthropic giving (including altruism, reciprocity, inequity aversion, warm-glow giving, etc.), techniques charities may use to increase giving, the role of culture on giving, and development of social preferences (i.e., experiments with children/young adults). Topics that are also of interest are volunteerism, the organization of charities/how they operate, and organ/blood donation.

In addition to providing an avenue for research discussions, another aim of the conference is to bring together researchers studying charitable giving with practitioners in the field of philanthropy. The conference is roughly divided into two parallel tracks, with a series of papers that lean toward basic science and a series that is more applied (whereby practitioners would be encouraged to attend the applied sessions).

Our key speakers for the moment (we may add more) are Steven Levitt and John List.

To keep a small group with opportunities for meaningful discussion, conference attendance is currently open to presenters or by invitation.

Please send your detailed ABSTRACT to Shannon Price at <sprice(at)spihub.org> by AUGUST 1, 2013. Word files are preferred. You do not need to specify to which track you are applying. We will let you know by the end of August if your paper has been accepted or not.

Conference registration is free of charge for invitees/presenters, and will include all meals and transportation to/from conference hotel.

Please email me if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Special Issue of DGAA in Industrial Organization

Posted on 2013/07/01. Filed under: 經濟, 綜合 | 標籤: |

Dear Colleagues,

Dynamic Games and Applications will publish in 2014 a special issue on Dynamic Games in Industrial Organization, edited by Rabah Amir, Hassan Benchekroun and Luca Lambertini. Details are provided in the attached file and on the Journal’s website (http://www.springer.com/mathematics/applications/journal/13235).

Dynamic Games and Applications

Call for Papers

Dynamic Games in Industrial Organization

Guest Editors:

Rabah Amir, University of Iowa, rabah-amir
Hassan Benchekroun, McGill University, hassan.benchekroun
Luca Lambertini, Università di Bologna, luca.lambertini

Industrial organization has long provided a fertile area for the application of the theory of dynamic games (in both discrete time and continuous time). Many of the basic oligopoly settings enjoy natural formulations as dynamic games, including research and development, strategic pricing over time, advertising, network externalities, consumer switching costs, learning by doing, capacity expansion, firm-level capital accumulation, among others. In recent years, there has been a surge of interest centering in particular on the use of dynamic (stochastic) games in modeling strategic industry dynamics with entry and exit.

In 2014, Dynamic Games and Applications will publish a special issue on the subject, focused in particular (but not exclusively) on the above topics. The scope of this issue is defined rather broadly and will also include applications of dynamic games in closely related fields (such as economics of regulation). In addition, models based on multi-stage games (such as two-stage and three-stage games) will be considered if suitably presented in relation to, or as as building blocks for, full-fledged dynamic games.

The special issue welcomes submissions with primary focus in basic theory, applied/policy-oriented work, empirical research, as well as computational methods. In addition, submissions in both discrete time and continuous time are sought.

Submission Deadline: January 15, 2014

Earlier submission is encouraged, and papers will appear online following acceptance in advance of the production of the full special issue.

Publication Date: June 2015
