Call For Papers

Healthcare systems are known to be among the most costly and inefficient ecosystems. It is widely accepted that better and more affordable healthcare is feasible. Interestingly, many of the reasons for this inefficiency are game theoretic: conflicting objectives, asymmetric information, lack of proper incentives, externalities, and more.

The fields of multi-agent systems and algorithmic game theory combine techniques from both computer science and game theory or micro economics to produce algorithms that take these self-interests into account. Such methodologies can be used to develop computerized solutions that overcome the above problems. Moreover, by incorporating patients' preferences into the algorithms, these solutions can be used to transform health systems to put the interests of patients in center, resulting in better care.

Please submit up to 3 pages of abstract. For submissions and inquiries, please email,
Accepted papers are expected to give a 20 minutes talk at the workshop
Dual submissions policy: There will be no proceedings so workshop material can be published elsewhere. If the article was already published please indicate that in the abstract
Workshop space is limited. If you are interesting in attending without a giving a talk please let us know.

The workshop will bring together senior decision makers in the EU health system, scientists in algorithmic game theory and multi-agent systems, industry representatives, and healthcare economists in order to identify research gaps, concrete use cases, long term research strategies, and potential projects.
