On December 16-17, 2020, CAIDA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will host the (invitation-only) 11th interdisciplinary Workshop on Internet Economics (WIE) online via a closed-session teleconference. The session will not be recorded for public rebroadcast.
This year we will do something a little different and focus on those users of CAIDA data that have explicitly tried to conduct economics or policy research with the data.
Place: Closed-session Video Teleconference via Zoom
Topics of Interest
Present a 10 minute discussion of what you have done with CAIDA data, or what you wish you could have done but could not, and how we might be able to help.
Presenters will prepare a short 10 minute discussion on issues related to the topics.
We expect everyone to participate in the discussions, as well as provide input, writing, and/or feedback on the report we'll publish within shortly after the workshop. Our goal is to produce a public workshop report, but the discussions themselves (and the identity of specific speakers) will be specifically off the record.

The plan is to have a two-day session from 4pm-6pm PST via Zoom teleconference, with a short 5 minute talk and a 10 minute discussion after. The timing of the agenda will be fluid; the goal is to have an interactive discussion where we bounce back-and-forth as necessary to connect dots. Remember no formal presentation required although you are welcome to use slides to get ideas across.
