The program for the EWEPA will count on each of the 3 days with a plenary session. We will also have special sessions for Phd students – with longer paper presentations and discussions of the papers and we will also have special honouring sessions. A scheme of how all this may fit within the 3 days of the conference is shown in the next table.

Peter Bogetoft: Title: New insights into contract design based on DEA and SFA

Peter BogetoftPeter Bogetoft holds a MSc degree in mathematical economics and a DrMerc degree in managerial economics. He is a professor in applied microeconomics at Copenhagen Business School and was previous professor in managerial economics at Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University and Copenhagen University. In addition, he has been a visiting professor at Yale School of Management in several periods. Peter Bogetoft has published around 100 scientific articles and 7 books and have made important contributions to a wide variety of areas, including planning, accounting, political economics, mechanism design, decision theory, industrial organization, cooperatives, contracting and software development. His research ranges from pure theory, over empirical testing of theory, to normative applications. Peter has been involved in a series of projects with industry and governmental bodies in many countries on the application of theories, in particular with respect to contract design, transfer pricing, auction design, regulation and benchmarking. Peter has also been a founding father of several research spin-offs, including developing interactive benchmarking software and combining encrypted calculations with economic mechanism design.



Victor Podinovski: Modelling VRS and CRS production technologies with component processes

Victor PodinovskiIn many applications, the production technology can be regarded as a combination of several production processes running in parallel, even if these are not perfectly separate. Each process is characterised by a set of specific (dedicated) inputs and outputs. There are also shared inputs and outputs whose allocation to the individual processes is assumed unknown. This talk discusses how such technologies can be modelled without making any assumptions about the allocation mechanism for the shared inputs and outputs. This leads to a new axiomatic foundation for multi-component VRS and CRS technologies. An application in the education context illustrates the potential of this methodology. It shows that just the information that there are several processes, if properly modelled, may lead to better efficiency discrimination, compared to the standard VRS and CRS models.

Victor Podinovski is Professor of Operational Research at School of Business and Economics of Loughborough University, UK. His research is focused on different topics of data envelopment analysis and production theory. This includes the modelling of technologies under different production assumptions, incorporation of additional information in such models, handling different types of data, and developing axiomatic foundations of such approaches. Victor is a co-editor of Journal of Productivity Analysis and co-director of the Centre for Performance and Productivity Analysis at Loughborough University.
