The STIET program brings together faculty and doctoral students from the University of Michigan and Wayne State University in research, training, and outreach, through an incentive-centered design (ICD) approach to modern information systems. System performance depends on the strategic behavior of autonomous, self-interested humans; therefore we draw on theories of rational decision making, game-theoretic models of strategic interaction, and economic, psychological and other social science theories of motivation to form a principled grounding for system design. We apply ICD methods to, for example, the design of user-contributed open-access content in social computing environments and to distributed allocation problems facing cyberinfrastructure development.
