The purpose of this doctoral project is to investigate fairness in group resource allocation. We will first study how the various notions of fairness introduced in the literature can be extended to handle fairness among groups of agents. A special interest will be dedicated to the notion of envy-freeness. We will also investigate the computational aspects related to these various fairness notions. We will then aim at designing allocation procedures that provide some fairness guarantees while being able to solve large problems such as the ones encountered in public housing or school admissions. Another related topics that will be developed in this project consists in handling diversity constraints in group resource allocation.
