AGT/COMSOC program in Singapore

This winter, Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Singapore) will host a 2-month long program on algorithmic game theory and computational social choice, organized by Ning Chen (NTU) and Edith Elkind (NTU). The program includes three workshops - a mini-workshop on mechanism design (Jan 10-11), a week-long workshop on algorithmic game theory (Jan 14-18), and a week-long workshop on computational social choice (Jan 20-25) - as well as longer stays by some of the invited researchers.  A graduate winter school will be run in parallel with the workshops. Confirmed speakers include Rakesh Vohra, Tim Roughgarden, Jason Hartline, Kevin Leyton-Brown, Ulle Endriss, Jerome Lang and Jean-Francois Laslier; see
for the complete list.

The workshops are open to participation. There is no registration fee, but the prospective visitors are asked to fill out the registration form at and drop an e-mail to Edith and Ning (eelkind, ningc at Thanks to generous support from the IMS and the AI Journal, we will be able to provide financial support (accommodation and/or travel) to a limited number of graduate students and young scientists who wish to attend the winter school; the applications for financial support can be filled out at
