Call For Papers

NetGCoop 2014
International Conference on
NETwork Games, COntrol and OPtimization

Trento, 29/30/31 October 2014
Submission date: June 15


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 and transportation networks. 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.

Scope of the Conference:
The Topics of interest to NetGCooP include (but are not limited to):

Hierarchical optimization in networking
Resource allocation and optimization
Optimization and control theoretical tools in networking
Dynamic Programming and Hamilton-Jacobi equations on networks
Optimal control, differential games and mean field games
Algorithmic game theory
Learning mechanisms in games
Computation of Nash, correlated, and market equilibria
Price of anarchy
Stackelberg games in networking
Incentives for cooperation between network entities
Network pricing
Preference elicitation and winner determination in combinatorial auctions
Flow and congestion control in networks
Transport networks
Control of queuing networks
Scheduling transmissions in networking
Optimization of wireless networks
Cloud computing and grid applications
Trust and reputation management
Electrical power networks
Formation of social networks
Competitive routing
Biological networks
Games for competition, advertisement or influence over social networks.
Network formation games
