Virtual Market Design Seminars (Fall 2020)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many seminars around the world are now held online, and they are open to anyone who is interested to join. On this page, we list a number of virtual seminars that cover market design topics (or topics broadly related to market design). Most of the seminars also provide a recording that can be watched after the seminar has taken place. If you know of additional online seminars that you think may be of interest to members of the market design center, please contact us.

* Note that the exact times of the seminars may change from week to week. Furthermore, the meeting time of most seminars is typically set in a different time zone than Zurich's; as not all time zones switch to day light savings time in the same week, this results in a shift of +/- one hour of the listed meeting time for some weeks.
