Stanford Conference Honors Paul Milgrom

Apr 18 2013

A conference that Stanford has dubbed the “Milgromfest” was held on April 19-20, 2013 to honor Paul Milgrom’s 65th birthday. The conference featured sessions with economics research papers presented by Paul’s former students and collaborators in diverse areas. The conference program includes research studies on auctions, market design, organizations, complementarities, incentives, and game theory — all of which are topic areas to which Milgrom has contributed original research.

Those attending the Milgromfest come from Europe, Asia, Australia and Japan and include three Nobel laureates and two John Bates Clark medalists from the US and a member of the British Royal Academy.

Paul’s students presented him with the gift of a long (nearly 20 pages!), detailed Wikipedia entry to report his accomplishments.
