Conference: Sharing Economy: Research on Access, Technology, Equity and Applications

March 21 - March 22

Multiple aspects of our 21st century lives are touched by sharing economy platforms, which enable customer-to customer matching and transactions, more efficient infrastructure utilization, and actively lower market friction. These electronic platforms span a broad spectrum of sectors, practices and organizational structures. There are inherent tensions and contradictions related to the objectives, boundaries and environmental and societal impacts of the sharing economy.This conference brings together leaders from the private sector and researchers from disciplines including engineering, law, computing, business, and public policy to:

  • Identify and compare regulatory and data sharing practices that influence the real-world implementation of sharing economy platforms.
  • Consider emerging technologies and algorithms for optimizing design, operation, incentives, and security.
  • Address the role of sharing economy platforms in working toward socially desirable outcomes, including sustainable growth, social equity and improved resilience.

Specific application areas to be explored at the conference include transportation, cloud computing, energy and healthcare. We aim to engage researchers, policy makers, and industry thinkers in thoughtful discussions about the social, economic and political context in which sharing economy platforms are emerging, approaches to collecting data and evaluating outcomes, and designing recommendations that that influence the real-world implementation of sharing economy platforms.
