NetEcon 2012
7th Workshop on the Economics of Networks, Systems, and Computation
Mar 30, 2012, held in conjunction with INFOCOM'12

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 
competing interests. Unmitigated selfish behavior in these systems can lead to 
high inefficiency or even complete collapse. Research interest in the 
application of economic and game-theoretic principles to the design and 
analysis of networked systems has grown in recent years. The NetEcon Workshop 
promotes multi-disciplinary work and discussion about the role of incentives in 
communication and computation.

It is our hope that NetEcon will serve as a feeder workshop, i.e., that 
expanded, polished versions of some NetEcon workshop papers will appear later 
in major conference proceedings and refereed journals of relevant research 
communities. Authors for whom publication in the NetEcon online workshop papers 
would preclude later publication of an expanded version in the relevant venue 
may elect to contribute only a one-page abstract of their submitted paper to 
the NetEcon workshop papers; such an abstract should include the URL of a 
working paper or preprint that contains the main results presented at the 
NetEcon workshop.  The authors can make this decision after they receive a 
notice of acceptance.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Dec 19, 2011 [Extended; the initial deadline was Dec 16]
PC-CHAIRS: Ashish Goel (Stanford University) and Arvind Krishnamurthy
(University of Washington)

Topics of interest to NetEcon'12 include, but are not limited to:

   -- Use of incentives and economic mechanisms in peer-to-peer systems, grids,
cloud computing, spam prevention, security, Internet routing and peering,
wireless networks, and other computational systems
   -- Methods for engineering incentives and disincentives (e.g., reputation,
trust, control, accountability, anonymity, etc.)
   -- Mathematical modeling and analysis of strategic behavior (or the lack
thereof) in existing, deployed systems
   -- Empirical studies of strategic behavior (or the lack thereof) in
existing, deployed systems
   -- Mathematical models and empirical studies on learning, information
exchange, diffusion, dynamics of cooperation and network formation, and trades
in social and economic networks
   -- Algorithmic mechanism design
   -- Critiques of existing models and solution concepts, as well as proposals
of better models and solution concepts
   -- Privacy, security, and anonymity in incentive-compatible computational
   --Studies of polarization, online collaboration, crowdsourcing, and human
