Pre-Conference Workshop

Pre-conference workshop 1 The workshop will be co-ordinated by Computech Pre-conference workshop 2: Discussing bid strategy

Spectrum auction design and bid strategy

Presented & co-ordinated by Computech

 

This interactive & practical 1-day workshop took place on 18th October, the day before the main conference. It offered participants the opportunity to participate in a number of different auction formats, and explore the impact of design decisions on bidder behaviour and auction outcomes. 

 

Using recent real-world examples as case studies, the workshop provided an overview of recent auction formats, rules and concepts, before participants had the opportunity to use the Computech Auction Platform (CAP) to take part in a mock auction themselves.
