*Deadline in one month* (Monday April 7, *firm*) -- Full *list of 
invited speakers available*.

Call For Papers:

*W-PIN+NetEcon 2014*: The Joint Workshop on Pricing and Incentive in 
Networks and Systems
         In conjunction with ACM SIGMETRICS 2014
         Monday, June 16, 2014 (Austin, USA)


     * *Paul Milgrom*, Stanford University (Economics)


     * *Asu Ozdaglar*, MIT (EECS)
     * *Aaron Roth*, UPenn (CS)


Today's communication networks and networked systems are highly complex 
and heterogeneous, and are often owned by multiple profit-making 
entities. For new technologies or infrastructure designs to be adopted, 
they must not be only based on sound engineering performance 
considerations but also present the right economic incentives. Recent 
changes in regulations of the telecommunication industry make such 
economic considerations even more urgent. For instance, concerns such as 
network neutrality have a significant impact on the evolution of 
communication networks.

At the same time, communication networks and networked systems support 
increasing economic activity based on applications and services such as 
cloud computing, social networks, and peer-to-peer networks. These 
applications pose new challenges such as the development of good pricing 
and incentive mechanisms to promote effective system-wide behavior. In 
relation to these applications, security and privacy also require 
consideration of economic aspects to be fully understood.

The aim of W-PIN+NetEcon is to foster discussions on the application of 
economic and game-theoretic models and principles to address challenges 
in the development of networks and network-based applications and 
services. W-PIN+NetEcon was formed as a merger of the successful NetEcon 
(earlier P2PECON, IBC and PINS workshops) and W-PIN workshops. We invite 
submission of extended abstracts describing original research on 
theoretical/methodological contributions or on applications to cases of 
interest. It is our hope that W-PIN+NetEcon will serve as a feeder 
workshop, i.e., that expanded, polished versions of extended abstracts 
will appear later in major conference proceedings and refereed journals 
of relevant research communities.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

     * Pricing of resources in communication networks, grids, and cloud 
     * Pricing of information goods and services; copyright issues, 
effect of network externalities (e.g., in social network)
     * Economic issues in universal broadband access; economics of 
interconnection and peering
     * Effects of market structure and regulations (e.g., network 
     * Economics of network security and privacy; valuation of personal data
     * Auctions with applications to networks: spectrum auctions, 
auction-based marketplaces for network and cloud resources
     * Incentive mechanisms for networks: peer-to-peer systems, clouds, 
wireless networks, spam prevention, security
     * Methods for engineering incentives and disincentives (e.g., 
reputation, trust, control, accountability, anonymity)
     * Empirical studies of strategic behavior (or the lack thereof) in 
existing, deployed systems
     * Design of incentive-aware network architectures and protocols
     * Game-theoretic models and techniques for network economics: large 
games, learning, mechanism design, interaction of game theory and 
information theory or queuing theory, information exchange, diffusion, 
dynamics of cooperation and network formation, trades in social and 
economic networks
     * Algorithmic mechanism design for network systems
     * Critiques of existing models and solution concepts, as well as 
proposals of better models and solution concepts
     * Studies of open collaboration, peer production, crowdsourcing, 
and human computation.


Submissions must be in the form of extended abstracts of 3-4 pages, 
including all figures, tables, references, appendices, etc. They must be 
formatted according to the standard alternate ACM PER double column 
format using letter paper. You are encouraged to use the ACM 
sig-alternate-per latex template 

Accepted extended abstracts will be published in a special issue of ACM 
Performance Evaluation Review (PER) and will be available online through 
ACM portal digital library. Authors of accepted abstracts grant ACM 
permission to publish them in print and digital formats.

Note that authors retain the copyright of their work published in ACM 
PER, with freedom to submit it elsewhere. Yet, authors for whom 
publication of a 3-4 pages extended abstract in the W-PIN+NetEcon 2014 
proceedings would preclude later publication of an expanded version in 
the relevant venue may elect to contribute only a one-page abstract of 
their submitted extended abstract to the W-PIN+NetEcon 2014 proceedings. 
Such an abstract should include the URL of a working paper or preprint 
that contains the main results presented at the W-PIN+NetEcon workshop. 
Authors will make this decision after receiving a notice of acceptance.

If the number of excellent submissions is larger than we can accept, 
some authors will be offered the opportunity to present their work 
during a poster session.
