Foundations of Electronic Markets

CFEM - Center for Research in the Foundations of Electronic Markets

CFEM was a research center committed to combining and advancing state-of-the-art of Computer Science and Economics. More specifically, we dealt with cryptography, algorithmics, complexity, game theory and mechanism design. Our results were used to design, analyze and implement new efficient and secure solutions for any type of electronic trading.

This included auctions, procurement, market regulation, cost allocation and new emerging types of markets on the Internet.
