Welcome to SAGT 2019

The 12th International Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory (SAGT) will take place in Athens, Greece, from the 30th of September to the 3rd of October, 2019.

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

Scope and Submissions

The program of SAGT 2019 will include both invited lectures and presentations for refereed submissions. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the conference. 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 and Fixed-Point Theorems
  • Repeated Games and Convergence of Dynamics
  • Algorithmic Mechanism Design
  • Reputation, Recommendation and Trust Systems
  • Network Games and Graph-Theoretic Aspects of Social Networks
  • Cost-Sharing Algorithms and Analysis
  • Computing with Incentives
  • Computational Social Choice
  • Decision Theory, and Pricing
  • Auction Design and Analysis
  • Economic Aspects of Distributed Computing
  • Internet Economics and Computational Advertising

Industrial application works and position papers presenting novel ideas, issues, challenges and directions are also welcome.

Submissions must be prepared in LNCS style and are limited to at most 14 pages (including title page, but excluding references). Additional material can be added in a clearly marked appendix. For detailed guidelines, see submission instructions.

It is expected that every accepted paper will be presented at the symposium by one of the authors.

The symposium proceedings shall be published by Springer in its LNCS/ARCoSS series. Accepted papers are allocated at most 14 pages in the proceedings. Alternatively, authors of accepted papers can choose to publish only a one page abstract in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper.

Selected papers from SAGT 2019 will be invited to a special issue of Theory of Computing Systems.
