Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference. New foundational work is solicited on topics including but not limited to:

– Solution Concepts in Game Theory
– Game Classes (e.g., Bimatrix, Potential, Bayesian)
– Exact and Approximate Computation of Equilibria
– Convergence and Learning in Games
– Complexity Classes in Game Theory
– Algorithmic Aspects of Fixed-Point Theorems
– Mechanisms, Incentives and Coalitions
– Cost-Sharing Algorithms and Analysis
– Computational Aspects of Market Equilibria
– Computational Problems in Economics, Finance, Decision
Theory and Pricing
– Auction Algorithms and Analysis
– Price of Anarchy and its Relatives
– Representations of Games and their Complexity
– Economic Aspects of Distributed Computing and the Internet
– Network Formation on the Internet
– Congestion, Routing and Network Design Games
– Game-Theoretic Approaches to Networking Problems

SUBMISSIONS
———–

A submission must report on original research, which has not previously appeared, and which is not concurrently being submitted to a journal or another conference with published proceedings. Any partial overlap with a published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of no more than 12 pages. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the Program
Committee. It is strongly encouraged that submissions follow the format of LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) of Springer. Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits. Submissions outsidethe scope of the symposium will be rejected without review.

Submissions are to be made electronically, following the guidelines on the symposium web page. Authors unable to submit electronically should contact the Program Chair to receive instructions.

All submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of the quality of their contribution, originality, soundness and significance.

——————————————————————
PUBLICATION
———–

The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer in its LNCS series (Lecture Notes in Computer Science); they will be available for distribution at the conference. Each paper in the proceedings will be restricted to a maximum of 12 pages (in LNCS format). Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be considered for a Special Issue of the “Theory of Computing Systems” journal.
