Call For Papers

International Conference on Network Games, Control and Optimization

28--30 November 2012, Paris, France

The topic of network control and optimization has been of increasing importance in many networking application domains, such as mobile and fixed access networks, computer networks, social networks, transportation networks, and smart grids. These all require tools (both conceptual and algorithmic) for a better and more efficient control operation, for optimization of their performance, and/or for a better understanding of the relationships between entities that may be cooperative or act selfishly, and in an uncertain and possibly adversarial environment.

The goal of this international forum is to bring together researchers from different areas with theoretical expertise in game theory, control, and optimization, and with applications in the domains listed above.

Topics of interest to NetGCOOP include (but are not limited to):
* Resource allocation in networks
* Optimization and control theoretical tools in networking
* Algorithmic game theory
* Learning in games, multi-agent learning
* Computation of Nash, correlated, and market equilibria
* Hierarchical optimization and games in networking
* Incentives for cooperation between network entities
* Network pricing
* Preference elicitation and winner determination in combinatorial
* Flow and congestion control in networks
* Control of queuing networks
* Networked control systems
* Stochastic control
* Dynamical systems and stochastic approximation
* Scheduling transmissions in networking
* Transport networks
* Optimization of wireless networks
* Grid applications
* Trust and reputation management
* Formation of social networks
* Competitive routing
* Biological networks
