Third International Workshop on Computational Social Choice
Düsseldorf, Germany, September 13–16, 2010

About COMSOC-2010 ...

Computational social choice is a new discipline emerging at the interface of social choice theory and computer science. It is concerned with the application of computational techniques to the study of social choice mechanisms, and with the integration of social choice paradigms into computing (read more).

The Third International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2010) will take place September 13–16, 2010, in Düsseldorf, Germany. It will be hosted by the Institut für Informatik at the University of Düsseldorf. The aim of the workshop is to bring together different communities: computer scientists interested in computational issues in social choice; people working in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems who are using ideas from social choice to organize societies of artificial software agents; logicians interested in the logic-based specification and analysis of social procedures (social software); and last but not least people coming from social choice theory itself.

COMSOC-2010 is generously funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and will be held in association and co-located with the COST Action "Algorithmic Decision Theory" (which will support some of its members to attend COMSOC-2010). COMSOC-2010 will also be accompanied by a "LogICCC tutorial day" with general introductory talks. This event, as part of the European Science Foundation EUROCORES Programme LogICCC (read more about the LogICCC Programme of the European Science Foundation), is supported by funds from AKA, DASTI, DFG, FCT, FWF, FNRS, GACR, ISF, MICINN, NWO, NZZ, TÜBITAK, and VR. The invited talks of the workshop and the tutorials will be presented by a number of prominent scientists. Registration fees will cover both the workshop and the LogICCC tutorial day and will be kept very low.
