[DMANET] EC'17: call for workshop and tutorial proposals


We invite proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held in
conjunction with the ACM Conference on Economics and Computation (ACM
EC) in Cambridge, MA this June.


Tutorials provide an opportunity to educate the community about emerging
topics of interest, or about topics from related fields that merit
additional attention from the EC community. Think of a tutorial as an
opportunity to invite colleagues and young researchers to get excited about
a well-defined topic, to prepare them to dive into the literature, and to
guide them to the most exciting developments and open problems. Typically,
tutorials run anywhere between two hours and full day, and consist of a
series of presentations by experts in the field.

Tutorial proposals should contain:
- the title of the tutorial
- the names, contact information, and short biographies of the organizers
- a description of the tutorial theme
- the organization/format of the tutorial
- any related tutorials that have been run
- required facilities for the tutorial
- the desired tutorial length (half day, full day, etc.)

Tutorial proposals should be emailed to


Workshops provide an opportunity to bring together researchers to
discuss emerging areas of research in an informal forum. Workshop
schedules should be designed to promote discussion and debate. A
workshop may include invited talks, contributed talks, panel
discussions, open problem sessions, presentations of work in progress,
or any other activities that stimulate new ideas for research. It is
up to the workshop organizers to determine the format and technical
content of each workshop and to solicit contributions, but we
encourage workshops that devote some time to contributed content.

Workshop proposals should contain:
- the title of the workshop
- the names, contact information, and short biographies of the organizers
- the names of confirmed or candidate participants
- a description of the workshop theme
- the reviewing process for participants
- the organization/format of the workshop
- any previous versions of the workshop
- required facilities for the workshop
- the desired workshop length (half day, full day, etc.)

For accepted workshops, the desired length will be honored as closely
as possible.

We especially encourage submissions that bring together participants
with diverse backgrounds and experience.

Workshop proposals should be emailed to
