CALL FOR PAPERS: Symposium on "Algorithmic Game Theory", Salerno (Italy), 17-19 Oct 2011, Italy

4th International Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory Salerno, Amalfi Coast, ITALY


SYMPOSIUM DATES October 17-19, 2011


The purpose of SAGT is to bring together researchers from Computer
Science, Economics, Physics, Biology and Mathematics to present and
discuss original research at the intersection of Algorithms and
Game Theory.


Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for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

- Solution Concepts in Game Theory
- Efficiency of Equilibria and Price of Anarchy
- Complexity Classes in Game Theory
- Computational Aspects of Equilibria
- Computational Aspects of Fixed-Point Theorems
- Repeated Games
- Evolution and Learning in Games
- Convergence of Dynamics
- Coalitions, Coordination and Collective Action
- Reputation, Recommendation and Trust Systems
- Graph-Theoretic Aspects of Social Networks
- Network Games
- Cost-Sharing Algorithms and Analysis
- Computing with Incentives
- Algorithmic Mechanism Design
- Computational Social Choice
- Decision Theory, and Pricing
- Auction Algorithms and Analysis
- Economic Aspects of Distributed Computing
- Internet Economics and Computational Advertising

The program will include both invited lectures and regular
presentations. Each regular presentation will be accompanied by a
paper in the symposium proceedings.



Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts presenting
original research on any of the research fields related to SAGT2011.
No simultaneous submission to other publication outlets (either a
conference or a journal) is allowed.

Submission Format: An extended abstract submitted to SAGT2011 should
start with the title of the paper, each author's name, affiliation
and e-mail address, followed by a one-paragraph summary of the
results to be presented. This should then be followed by a
technical exposition of the main ideas and techniques used to
achieve these results, including motivation and a clear comparison
with related work. The extended abstract should not exceed 12
single-spaced pages, using reasonable margins and at least 11-point
font (including the references). If the authors believe that more
details are essential to substantiate the main claims of the paper,
they may include a clearly marked appendix (with no space limit)
that will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. It
is strongly recommended that submissions adhere to the specified
format and length. Submissions that are clearly too long may be
rejected immediately.

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.

Industrial application works and position papers presenting novel
ideas, issues, challenges and directions are also welcome. PC
members are also eligible to submit papers.

All submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed and evaluated on
the basis of the quality of their contribution, originality,
soundness, and significance. The PC-coauthored papers will undergo
the typical peer-reviewing procedure, but there will be a separate
Committee to judge their quality and significance.


It is expected that accepted papers will be presented at the Symposium
by one of the authors.


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"
