University of Glasgow, 16-18 April 2015
MATCH-UP 2015 is the third workshop in the series of interdisciplinary and international
workshops on matching under preferences. It is co-located, and is partially overlapped with, the COST Action IC1205 meeting on Matching and Fair Division
that takes place on 14-16 April 2015.
MATCH-UP 2017 will be hosted by Microsoft Research in Cambridge, MA, USA, and will take place between 20-21 April 2017.
The first MATCH-UP was held on 6 July 2008 at Reykjavík University as a satellite workshop of ICALP 2008. MATCH-UP 2012, second in this series, was held on 19-20 July 2012 at Corvinus University of Budapest.
Matching problems with preferences occur in widespread applications such as the assignment of school-leavers to universities, junior doctors to hospitals, students to campus housing, children to schools, kidney transplant patients to donors and so on. The common thread is that individuals have preference lists over the possible outcomes and the task is to find a matching of the participants that is in some sense optimal with respect to these preferences.
The remit of this workshop is to explore matching problems with preferences from the perspective of algorithms and complexity, discrete mathematics, combinatorial optimization, game theory, mechanism design and economics, and thus a key objective is to bring together the research communities of the related areas.
List of topicsThe matching problems under consideration include, but are not limited to:
SubmissionsWe call for three types of contributions.
ProceedingsThe workshop proceedings are available for download.
FundingThere are a limited number of assisted places, funded by SICSA, that will be awarded to PhD students studying Computer Science at SICSA universities. These assisted places will cover the cost of registration but will not cover travel or accommodation. See Registration for more information.
