Game theory provides tools to solve optimization problems in systems where the participants act independently and their decisions affect the whole system. A very significant body of research at the interface of game theory and computer science concerns the design of automated mechanisms for economic transactions on the internet. Prime examples are advertisements that search engines such as Google, Bing or Yahoo! place next to the results of internet searches. Algorithmic game theory and computation game theory are emerging research areas and address precisely problems such as how one can solve a game both quantitatively and strategically by an efficient algorithm and further design automated mechanisms for e.g. economic transactions.
This 2-day workshop will bring together experts in high performance computing and algorithm development for games, and experts in theoretical game modelling. The aim is to foster the research in resolving computational challenges in game theory by exchanging knowledge between theoretical and computation game theorist and practitioners.
