20 October 2008, Game Theory in Communication Networks (GameComm 2008), Athens, Greece

Date: 20 October 2008
Location: Athens, Greece
Deadline: 10 June 2008

The Workshop on Game theory in Communication networks (GameComm) is a one-day meeting held in conjunction with the 3rd International Conference on Performance Evaluation Methodologies and Tools (VALUETOOLS'08,

The distributed nature of wireline and wireless communication networks gives rise to many challenges related to their analysis, control, and management. The selfish nature of users, development of decentralized control mechanisms, and fair allocation of system resources are among major issues in networks research. Consequently, game theoretic methods are increasingly utilized to gain a deeper understanding of these complex problems and systems. Specifically, game theoretic models have been used in the context of Internet pricing, flow and congestion control, routing, power control, and recently security, among many other topics. The application of game theory to communication networks has attracted researchers from a variety of disciplines, including computer science, operations research, control theory, and economics.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers who are interested in all aspects of the application game theory to the analysis and design of communication networks. The goal is to display the state-of-the-art in this evolving field, as well as stir discussion and outline possible directions for further progress.

The GameComm 2008 workshop solicits technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research on all aspects of game theoretical analysis as it applies to communication networks. Submission deadline: June 10, 2008. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Telecommunication Systems Journal dedicated to GameComm 2008.
