PURCE presentation to focus on 'Interlinked Contests & Decision Making'

A Purdue University Research Center in Economics (PURCE) lunchtime presentation on Sept. 16 – being offered both in person and virtually – will focus on "Interlinked Contests & Decision Making."

Speaker Brian Roberson, professor of economics, will discuss recent research that highlights the potential gains arising in environments with a set of interlinked contests in moving from centralized decision making to decentralized decision making. This is a prominent feature of Department of Defense policy initiatives such as the mosaic warfare concept proposed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

The host will be Kevin Mumford, the Kozuch Director of PURCE, and there will be a Q&A following Roberson’s talk.

To attend in person: Registration is available online and is due by Monday (Sept. 13). Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. ET with the presentation following at noon. The presentation will be held in Rawls Hall's Third Floor Commons. Protect Purdue safety protocols will be followed, and attendees are required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose while indoors and not eating. Parking is available in the nearby Grant Street Parking Garage.

To attend virtually: Register online by 11 a.m. Sept. 16 to receive the livestream link. Guests will join the livestream at noon with no camera or mic option. Guests will be able to type and submit a question that the moderator can read to Roberson.
