The Computation and Economics Research Group was founded by Prof. Dr. Sven Seuken in September 2011. We conduct research on topics at the intersection of computer science and economics with a focus on the design and analysis of electronic markets and market-based systems. Our research approach is very broad and interdisciplinary. We use techniques from economics as well as computer science which includes theoretical modeling, formal analysis, simulations, as well as lab and field experiments. For more information please see our list of publications.
