The design and analysis of trading agents poses significant challenges in decision-making, and many different artificial intelligence (AI) techniques have been combined in the study of trading agents, including planning, decision theory, game theory, machine learning, optimization, and others. In addition to research interest, trading agents have potential benefits in electronic commerce, supply chain management, and other business interests. This workshop focuses on all aspects of the design and evaluation of trading agents, including agent architectures, decision-making algorithms, theoretic analysis of agents or market games, empirical studies of agent performance, agent negotiation strategies, game-theoretic studies, market architectures, and other related topics are all within the scope of the workshop.   This workshop will be held in conjunction with the 2013 Trading Agent Competition (TAC-13) ( finals.     -- Topics of interest -- We encourage submissions on, but not limited to:    - Distributed (scalable) algorithmic mechanism design     - Mechanisms for unreliable, dynamic and asynchronous environments     - Mechanisms for incomplete and/or imperfect information environments     - Mechanisms for information goods and services     - Mechanisms for security, privacy, accounting, verification and auditing     - Distributed (agent and mechanism) learning models     - Agent strategies in multi-institutional environments     - Economic and game theoretic specification, design and analysis     - Bargaining, voting and auction mechanisms     - Distributed reputation and trust mechanisms     - Agents that support bidding and negotiation     - Empirical evaluation of human-agent trading     - Simulation and evaluation of properties of novel and complex mechanisms     - Implemented agent-mediated electronic-commerce systems    - Electronic-commerce systems based on social networking     -- Important dates and deadlines -- Electronic submission of full papers:            March 28, 2013 Notification of paper acceptance/rejection:   April 19, 2013 Camera-ready copies of accepted papers:   May 9, 2013 TADA 2013 workshop:                                      July 14 or 15, 2013     -- Submission requirements -- Paper format should follow AAAI author's guide ( with up to 8 pages (full papers) and 4 pages (short papers). Manuscripts are expected to be in English and should be in the PDF format. Papers are to be submitted through the EasyChair Conference System website   - Full papers - Full papers should be 8 two-column pages, including references.    - Short papers - We encourage the submission of short papers (up to 4 pages) related to TAC competitions to be presented at the workshop. Topics covered in short papers covering include strategies used in previous TAC competitions, discussions as to the effectiveness of different approaches and thoughts on applying the lessons learned through TAC to other domains.      -- Workshop Chair -- Vedran Podobnik University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing Unska 3, HR-10000 Zagreb, Croatia e-mail: web:      -- Program Committee -- John Collins, University of Minnesota, USA Shaheen Fatima, University of Loughborough, UK Enrico Gerding, University of Southampton, UK Maria Gini, University of Minnesota, USA Amy Greenwald, Brown University, USA Gordan Jezic, University of Zagreb, Croatia Patrick R.
