3rd International ICST Conference on Game Theory for Networks -
GameNets 2012
24th and 26th May 2012
Vancouver, Canada


- The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT
- All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries
- Proceedings will be submitted for indexing by Google Scholar, ISI, EI Compendex, Scopus and many more



Game theory is a resourceful mathematical framework to analyze complex interactions of cooperative or competing decision makers taking into account their preferences and requirements. The far-reaching achievements of Game Theory are well manifested by 8 Nobel prizes for researchers in this field, most recently in 2007 for “the
foundations of mechanism design theory”. GameNets 2012 aims to bring together the leading researchers in Game Theory together for an informal yet informative gathering which hopefully will lead into new collaborative research initiatives and help advance the state-of-the-art.


Hereby we encourage prospective authors to submit their original, unpublished work covering (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Novel solution concepts such as equilibrium or core solutions
- Dynamic and stochastic games
- Coalition formation games
- Evolutionary game theory for wireless networks
- Super-modular and sub-modular games
- Mechanism design
- Truthfulness and profitability in auctions and their applications to communication networks
- Correlated equilibrium
- Analysis of security and privacy in networks via game theory
- Reinforcement and Q-learning
- Imperfect/asymmetric information games
- Self-organizing and cognitive radio networks
- Femto-cell coexistence and scheduling
- Multi-armed and restless bandit
- Game Theory for Cloud Computing and its Application
- Investigation of the Price of Anarchy (PoA)


Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus.

[Paper submission]

Prospective authors are invited to submit their contributions as extended abstracts of up to 8 pages in single-column format with one-and-a-half line spacing, and containing sufficient information to allow for a detailed review.
