If you are taking CPSC 455b/555b for credit, you will have to give a PowerPoint presentation at the end of the semester. The topic may be anything in the general area of Economics and Computation except for interdomain routing or incentives in P2P systems. Possible topics, together with one representative paper for each topic, are provided here. You need not choose a topic from this list, but you should definitely start thinking about your topic as soon as possible and consider those on this list.
