    The Sharing Economy conference will bring together researchers from diverse disciplines, including mechanical and industrial engineering, urban mobility and informatics, computing, business, economics, law, public policy and sociology, as well as thought leaders from the private and public sectors to:
    • Discuss challenges behind current markets, regulations and policies associated with sharing economy systems and explore potential solutions
    • Consider emerging technologies and algorithms for optimizing design, operation, incentives, and security of sharing economy systems
    • Examine how sharing economy can enable socially desirable outcomes, including sustainable growth, social equity and improved resilience
    Application areas to be explored include-- but are not limited to-- cloud computing, distributed energy, healthcare delivery, lodging, urban mobility. We aim to engage participants in thoughtful discussions about the economic, political and social contexts in which sharing economy platforms are emerging, examine promising approaches to collecting data and evaluating outcomes, and design recommendations for improving real-world implementations of sharing economy systems.
