6-8 December 2006, 1st International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2006), ILLC, Amsterdam

Date: 6-8 December 2006
Location: ILLC, Amsterdam
Deadline: 1 October 2006

Computational social choice is a new discipline emerging at the interface of social choice theory and computer science. It is concerned with the application of computational techniques to the study of social choice mechanisms, and with the integration of social choice paradigms into computing (read more).

The 1st International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2006) will take place on 6-8 December 2006 in Amsterdam. It will be hosted by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam. The aim of the workshop is to bring together different communities: computer scientists interested in computational issues in social choice; people working in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems who are using ideas from social choice to organise societies of artificial software agents; logicians interested in the logic-based specification and analysis of social procedures (social software); and last but not least people coming from social choice theory itself.

COMSOC-2006 is generously funded by the NWO (Dutch Research Council), which will allow us to bring in several prominent scientists as invited speakers, whilst keeping registration fees very low.

The registration fee is €60 (€30 for (PhD) students). Please register by 16 November 2006. For more information, see http://www.illc.uva.nl/~ulle/COMSOC-2006/ or contact Ulle Endriss ().
