The Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences presents
"Adaptive Systems and Mechanism Design"
January 23-25, 2009
Social Science Plaza A, Room 2112
A need to understand how a system of interaction, rewards, etc. can be created that will accomplish a desired outcome is a goal shared by several disciplines, ranging from political science, economics, and computer science: this is an objective of mechanism design. Closely related is the need to understand how biological and other systems adapt to new circumstances: this is the area of adaptive systems. This interdisciplinary workshop will consider all of these issues from different perspectives.
