Call for Papers
---------------
Workshop on Trading Agent Design and Analysis (TADA 2011)
http://issel.ee.auth.gr/tada11

July 17th, 2011, Barcelona, Spain
Held in conjunction with the 22nd Int. Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2011)


Important Dates and Deadlines:
------------------------------
- Electronic submission of full papers: April 3, 2011 (Extended!!!)
- Notification of paper acceptance/rejection: April 25, 2011
- Camera-ready copies of accepted papers: May 16, 2011
- TADA-2011 workshop: July 17th, 2011


Scope:
--------
The study and design of trading agents are prominent application areas in artificial intelligence, since they challenge models of rational decision-making, and have interesting potential benefits for electronic commerce. To date, a broad range of trading scenarios and agent approaches have been studied, creating an extensive and rich research area. The workshop focuses on the design and evaluation of trading agents. Papers on trading agent architectures, decision making algorithms, theoretical analysis, empirical evaluations of agent strategies in negotiation scenarios, game-theoretic analyses, trading mechanisms and market architectures are all within the scope of the workshop.
The TADA workshop series traditionally (from 2003 on) coincides with the finals of the Trading Agent Competition (http://www.sics.se/tac/), and many of the contestants participate in the workshop venue.


Topics of interest:
-------------------
We encourage submissions on, but not limited to:
- Distributed (scalable) algorithmic mechanism design
- Mechanisms for unreliable, dynamic and asynchronous environments
- Mechanisms for incomplete and/or imperfect information environments
- Mechanisms for information goods and services
- Mechanisms for security, privacy, accounting, verification and auditing
- Distributed (agent and mechanism) learning models
- Agent strategies in multi-institutional environments
- Economic and game theoretic specification, design and analysis
- Bargaining, voting and auction mechanisms
- Distributed reputation and trust mechanisms
- Agents that support bidding and negotiation
- Empirical evaluation of human-agent trading
- Simulation and evaluation of properties of novel and complex mechanisms
- Implemented agent-mediated electronic-commerce systems


Submission Instructions:
------------------------
- Full papers.
Full papers should be 8 two-column pages, including references. Manuscripts are exptected to be in English, and should be in PDF format. Author guidelines can be found at: http://ijcai-11.iiia.csic.es/calls/call_for_papers.

- Short papers.
We are inviting the submission of *short papers* (up to 4 pages) related to TAC competitions to be presented at the workshop. Topics covered in short papers covering include strategies used in previous TAC competitions, discussions as to the effectiveness of different approaches, thoughts on applying the lessons learned through TAC to other domains.

Papers are to be submitted through the EasyChair Conference System website

Post-workshop publication:
--------------------------
- The TADA-11 Proceedings will be published (electronic format) with IJCAI proceedings.
- LNCS/LNAI proceedings pending.
- A Special Issue on Trading Agents is pending.
