Conference
The Association for Public Economic Theory held its fifteenth international meeting at the University of Washington from July 11-July 13, 2014. As a tradition, the Coalition Theory Network organises some sessions within PET conference programmes.
CTN encourages the development and the circulation of new research on coalition theory and group formation. Straightforward application of such theories is important in both economical and political areas, such as the study of international negotiations, the analysis of coalition formation in parliaments and the cabinet formation, the cartel stability in various industries and finally, group formation in various sociological environments.

This year's session, chaired by Vincent Vannetelbosch (CORE),  was centred on "Information and Networks". The papers presented were the following:

HANNU SALONEN, UNIVERSITY OF TURKU
Reciprocal equilibria in link formation games

XU TAN, UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON
SONGZI DU, SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY
Segregation, homophily and bridges: a network formation model

NICOLE TABASSO, UNIVERSITY OF SURREY

EMERSON MELO, CORNELL UNIVERSITY
