Call for Papers
WINE 2015: The 11th Conference on Web and Internet Economics
December 9-12, 2015, with tutorial program on December 9, 2015
Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Over the past decade, research in theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, and microeconomics has joined forces to tackle problems involving incentives and computation. These problems are of particular importance in application areas like the Web and the Internet that involve large and diverse populations. The Conference on Web and Internet Economics (WINE) is an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and results on incentives and computation arising from these various fields. WINE 2015 builds on the success of the Conference on Web and Internet Economics (named Workshop on Internet & Network Economics until 2013), which was held annually from 2005 to 2014.
WINE 2015 will take place at CWI in December 2015. The program will feature invited talks, tutorials, paper presentations, and a poster session. All paper submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of the quality of their contribution, originality, soundness, and significance. Industrial applications and position papers presenting novel ideas, issues, challenges and directions are also welcome. Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Algorithmic game theory
- Algorithmic mechanism design
- Auction algorithms and analysis
- Computational advertising
- Computational aspects of equilibria
- Computational social choice
- Convergence and learning in games
- Coalitions, coordination and collective action
- Economic aspects of security and privacy
- Economic aspects of distributed computing
- Network games
- Price differentiation and price dynamics
- Social networks
Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts presenting original research on any of the research fields related to WINE 2015.
An extended abstract submitted to WINE 2015 should start with the title of the paper, each author’s name, affiliation and e-mail address, followed by a one-paragraph summary of the results to be presented. This should then be followed by a technical exposition of the main ideas and techniques used to achieve these results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work.
The extended abstract should not exceed 14 single-spaced pages (excluding references) using reasonable margins (at least one-inch margins all around) and at least 11-point font. If the authors believe that more details are essential to substantiate the claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked appendix (with no space limit) that will be read at the discretion of the Program Committee. It is strongly recommended that submissions adhere to the specified format and length. Submissions that are clearly too long may be rejected immediately. The above specifications are meant to provide more freedom to the authors at the time of submission. Note that accepted papers will be allocated 14 pages (including references) in the LNCS format in the proceedings (see below).
The proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer-Verlag in the ARCoSS/LNCS series, and will be available for distribution at the conference. Accepted papers will be allocated 14 pages total in the LNCS format in the proceedings. Submissions are encouraged, though not required, to follow the LNCS format (Latex, Word). More information about the LNCS format can be found on the author instructions page of Springer-Verlag.
In cooperation with the ACM Transactions on Economics and Computation (TEAC), WINE 2015 will invite selected authors to submit their extended papers to appear in a special section of a TEAC issue. These submissions will still go through the TEAC review process.
To accommodate the publishing traditions of different fields, authors of accepted papers can ask that only a one-page abstract of the paper appear in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper. Authors should guarantee the link to be reliable for at least two years. This option is available to accommodate subsequent publication in journals that would not consider results that have been published in preliminary form in a conference proceedings. Such papers must be submitted and formatted just like papers submitted for full-text publication.
Simultaneous submission of results to another conference with published proceedings is not allowed. Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to WINE 2015, or published (or accepted for publication) at a journal prior to the submission deadline of WINE 2015, will not be considered. Simultaneous submission of results to a journal is allowed only if the authors intend to publish the paper as a one-page abstract in WINE 2015. Papers that are accepted and appear as a one-page abstract can be subsequently submitted for publication in a journal but may not be submitted to any other conference that has a published proceedings.
WINE 2015 is soliciting proposals for tutorials to be held on December 9, 2015. Tutorial proposals should be no more than 2 pages long and contain the title of the tutorial, a description of the topic matter, the names of the tutor(s), and dates/venues where earlier versions of the tutorial were given (if any). In addition, short biographies of the tutor(s) should be attached to the proposal. Informal suggestions of tutorial ideas can also be sent without a full proposal to the program chairs at any time. Tutorial proposals should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
