 Visitors and Participants





The objective of the program is to bring together experts on algorithmic aspects of economics and group decision making in order to foster interdisciplinary collaboration in two burgeoning research areas, namely, algorithmic game theory and computational social choice. The two areas are closely related to each other, and share strong mathematical foundations. Our program is as a meeting point for researchers from different areas that study incentives and collective action, such as mathematics, game theory, theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, economics, social choice, and operation research, and will expose the participants (and especially junior researchers) to a wide variety of tools, techniques, and modeling perspectives.

In addition to supporting a number of long-term visitors and short-term visitors, the program will include three workshops and one winter school..

For the winter school, several world-class experts will give tutorials on a number of active research directions in Algorithmic Game Theory and Computational Social Choice. The tentative topics are

  • Algorithmic mechanism design
  • Equilibrium computation
  • Fair division
  • Computational aspects of preference aggregation
  • Social networks


The workshops will include presentations by world-class researchers and provide ample opportunities for new research collaborations.


Students and researchers who are interested in attending these activities are requested to complete the online registration form.

The following do not need to register:

  • Those invited to participate.
  • Those applying for financial support.





 Funding for Students/Young Scientists


The Institute for Mathematical Sciences has limited funds to cover partial support for travel and/or living expenses for students or young scientists interested in participating in the program. Interested applicants can complete the online form here.
