There  has  been a growing trend in merging theories, methodologies,
and   applications  in  Computer  Science,  Economics,  Mathematics,
Management   Sciences  for  solving   problems  arisen  in  Internet
technologies,  grid  computing,  network communication protocols, as
well  as  social  economic  issues  in  virtual  communities enabled
through World Wide Web.

The   Workshop   on  Internet  &  Network  Economics  (WINE)  is  an
interdisciplinary  conference  that  intends  to provide a forum for
researchers  as  well  as practitioners to exchange innovative ideas
and to be aware of each otherís efforts and results. The 2nd edition
of WINE (WINE 2006) will take place from the  15th  to  the  17th of
December 2006, in Patra (Greece).

This   year's   WINE   will  emphasize  on  solid  foundational  and
mathematical work on the topics of the conference. Papers presenting
original  research  on all aspects of the fields of algorithmic game
theory are sought. Typical but not exclusive topics of interest are:

 * Ad hoc networking and communities,
 * algorithmic game theory and online algorithms,
 * algorithmic mechanism design,
 * auction algorithms and analysis,
 * computational general equilibrium and approximation,
 * coordination and collective action,
 * digital goods and information markets,
 * e-commerce payment and exchange protocols,
 * economics of internet security,
 * fixed point algorithms,
 * incentive compatible protocols,
