Many computational tasks require the participation of a diverse set of users. These users are motivated by their own interests and act to maximize the utility they gain from interacting with the system. Examples abound, including online advertising auctions, financial transactions, voting platforms, user-generated content sites, and cloud-computing systems.

This session of the 2013 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit focuses on how to design such systems with appropriate economic incentives for users.
