(Paderborn, September 2012) The first OWL Workshop on "Markets, Games, and Design" was held at the University of Paderborn and Bielefeld University from September 12-16, 2012. During these days recent results on the connection between game theory and the microeconomic analysis of markets were discussed by researchers from Great Britain, France, Japan, Netherlands, USA and Germany. A particular focus was put on the transfer of solution concepts for cooperative games to market scenarios in order to better understand the functionality of markets and directions that guide an efficient market design.
We thank all the participants for their active contribution to the success of this workshop and gratefully acknowledge financial and other support from the University of Paderborn and Bielefeld University including the Chair of Microeconomics (PB), the SFB 901 "On-The-Fly Computing" (PB), the Institute of Mathematical Economics (BI), the International Research Training Group EBIM (BI) and the German Research Foundation (BI).
