Workshop Program

Who we are

The Anillo project, "Search and Matching: Assets, Unemployment, and Governance" is spearheaded by a collective of researchers conducting work on markets characterized by search frictionsThe project is also intended to be a contribution to the country’s public policy and it will draw upon the additional support of MA and doctoral stream students, including a post-doctoral fellow. The results stemming from the research component of this project ring will be presented and discussed during its annual workshops.


Workshop on Search and Matching

The Workshop on Search and Matching will take place on November 18th to November 20th, at the Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Chile. A broad set of topics will be considered, including unemployment, money and finance. The workshop is the first of a series of events planned by SMAUG and it was made possible with the support of CONICYT PIA (Anillo project SOC 1402 on “Search models: implications for markets, social interactions and public policy”) and the Millennium Institute for Research in Market Imperfections and Public Policy (MIPP). Please check our Events section for further information, including the list of speakers and the work being presented.

SMAUG featured in Beauchef Magazine

"Search Models for Market Imperfections" is the title of an article featured on the 8th edition of Beauchef Magazine, the journal of engineering and science at the University of Chile, which often serves as a forum for the development and discussion of topics related to scientific, technological, economic and social research. The article provides a summary of the goals and objectives of SMAUG and a copy of the Spanish version of it can be found here.
