2014 47th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (2008)
Waikoloa, Big Island, Hawaii
Jan. 7, 2008 to Jan. 10, 2008
This minitrack begins with papers on e-mechanism design. R. Vragov, D. Shang, and K. R. Lang contrib- uted "Should Online Auctions Employ Dynamic Buy- out Pricing Models?" They model buy-it-now options and show how the buyout price should change with time to maximize seller profit and buyer surplus, and discuss an experimental approach designed to docu- ment the performance gains. J. Stoesser, P. Boden- benner, S. See, and D. Neumann's paper is next, and is entitled "A Discriminatory Pay-as-Bid Mechanism for Efficient Scheduling in the Sun N1 Grid Engine." The authors discuss a discriminatory pay-as-bid market mechanism and show how it outperforms the market- based proportional share approach, a prominent grid market mechanism.
