Pardon the public service announcement, but I wanted to let readers know that applications are now being accepted for a summer school I've co-taught on Experimental Auctions for the past 2 years in Italy. Experimental auctions are a technique used to measure consumer willingness-to-pay for new food products, which in turn is used to project demand, market share, and benefits/costs of public policies. We've had a fantastic time the past two years and I'm looking forward to the third, which was just approved for credit hours by the University of Bologna. The content is mainly targeted toward graduate students or early career professionals (or marketing researchers interested in learning about a new technique). You can find out more here and register here.
For a little enticement, here are some pictures of the previous years' classes.
