Nature of the program:
Game theory and mechanism design deal with interactions among strategic
agents. While game theory is concerned with analysis of games, mechanism
design involves designing games with desirable outcomes. Currently these
are lively and active areas of research for inter-disciplinary problem solving.
Disciplines where game theory and mechanism design have traditionally
been used include economics, business, sociology, political science, biology,
philosophy, and engineering. More recently, game theory has been
embraced by computer science and electrical engineering disciplines in the
context of many emerging applications.
The central objective of this workshop is to provide a sound understanding
of the science behind the use of game theory and mechanism design in
solving modern problems in engineering, especially in computer science
and network engineering. The workshop will include tutorial lectures on
foundational topics and will be followed by presentations on advanced
Deadline for application: 02 December 2015.
There will be a poster session at the workshop. The Ph.D. students among
the selected participants will be invited to submit a poster proposal
before December 15. Selected posters will be presented on the Thursday
of the workshop week.
