NetEcon 2010

Title:2010 Workshop on the Economics of Networks, Systems, and Computation
Submission Deadline:2010-06-04
Webpage:http://www.usenix.org/events/netecon10/cfp/
Dates:October 3, 6, or 7, 2010
Location:Vancouver, BC, Canada
Contact Email:netecon10chairs@usenix.org
Synopsis:
NetEcon '10 will be co-located with the 9th USENIX Symposium on Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI '10), which will take place October 4–6, 2010. The emergence of the Internet as a global platform for computation and communication has sparked the development and deployment of many large-scale networked systems. Often these systems involve multiple stakeholders with divergent or even competing interests. Unmitigated selfish behavior in these systems can lead to high inefficiency or even complete collapse. The NetEcon Workshop promotes multi-disciplinary work and discussion about the design and analysis of incentives, economics, and game-theoretic principles in networked systems.
