Assigned To Your Choice? A Short Note on the Assignment of Researchers to Workspaces (2010) 

Abstract:  In 2009, while in our roles as Researcher Representatives (Reps) for the Economics Department at the EUI, one of our tasks was to assign researchers from 2nd, 3rd and 4th year to available workspaces. We decided to implement an algorithm which is commonly used in, among others, the problem of assigning students to schools, and which has its origins on the matching problem developments for which A. Roth and L. Shapley received the 2012 Eco- nomics Prize in Memory of A. Nobel. We present a short summary of the procedure and algorithm carried out to assign researchers to workspaces. We then use Monte Carlo simula- tions in order to analyze its behavior and to compare it with alternative algorithms commonly used for similar problems. We find that the implemented algorithm has interesting properties in terms of final allocations.
