2-3 September 2010, Workshop on Advances in Algorithmic Game Theory

Date: 2-3 September 2010
Location: CWI, Science Park 123, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Costs: free

Algorithmic game theory is a rather recent research field that lies at the intersection of economics, computer science and mathematics. Its origins in the early 1990's were largely motivated by the wealth of new applications that came into existence with the emergence of the Internet. The field pursues mathematical studies of games with a particular focus on computational and algorithmic issues. These studies are interdisciplinary in flavor and often demand for a combination of methodologies and techniques from the areas of optimization, algorithms and game theory. Algorithmic game theory contributed successfully to the understanding of many fundamental games in recent years and has become a highly active research field.

The two-day workshop will be hosted at the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam and will take place September 2-3, 2010. There will be four keynote talks and about 12 contributed talks.

Please register before August 16, 2010. For more information, see http://www.cwi.nl/~schaefer/agt10/
