[DMANET] 1st Workshop on Algorithmic Game Theory at IJCAI -- Final call for papers

AGT@IJCAI 2015 Final Call for Papers

1st Workshop on Algorithmic Game Theory at IJCAI
Buenos Aires, Argentina
July 24-31, 2015

*** Submission site is now open:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=agtijcai2015 ***



April 27, 2015 - Submission of contributions to workshops;
May 20, 2015 - Workshop paper acceptance notification;
May 30, 2015 - Deadline for final camera ready copy to workshop organizers.



Over the past fifteen years, research in theoretical computer science,
artificial intelligence, and microeconomics has joined forces to
tackle problems involving incentives and computation. This research
field, commonly named Algorithmic Game Theory, is becoming
increasingly more relevant.

The main aim of this one-day long workshop is to bring together the
rich variety of scientists that IJCAI attracts in order to have a
multidisciplinary forum within which discuss and analyze current and
novel challenges that the research in Algorithmic Game Theory faces.


All paper submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis
of the quality of their contribution, originality, soundness, and
significance. Industrial applications and position papers presenting
novel ideas, issues, challenges and directions are also welcome.
Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following topics:

- Algorithmic mechanism design
- Auction algorithms and analysis
- Behavioral Game Theory
- Bounded rationality
- Computational advertising
- Computational aspects of equilibria
- Computational social choice
- Convergence and learning in games
- Coalitions, coordination and collective action
- Economic aspects of security and privacy
- Economic aspects of distributed and network computing
- Information and attention economics
- Network games
- Price differentiation and price dynamics
- Social networks

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit a paper of no more than 16 pages,
including references, in LNCS style. All submissions will be
electronic via the EasyChair page for the conference at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=agtijcai2015. Submissions must
adhere to the specified format and length. All the technical details
that are necessary for a proper scientific evaluation of a submission
must be included in a clearly-labelled appendix, to be consulted at
the discretion of program committee members. Please note that
reviewing will not be double-blinded.

Proceedings Publication:

To widen participation and encourage discussion, there will be no
formal publication of workshop proceedings. Therefore, submissions of
preliminary work and papers to be submitted or in preparation for
submission to other major venues in the field are encouraged.

**** Journal Publication Opportunity: ****

We have made the following arrangement with the peer-reviewed,
open-access journal "Games" (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/games):
pending submission of at least 5 selected AGT@IJCAI papers to the
journal, Games will issue a special edition of papers from the
workshop, with a rapid review procedure. Submissions will get a *full*
waiver of the 540 US$ publication fee.
