BACKGROUND

  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, new 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.
