November 6-7 2014, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Recent advances in networking, communications, comp
utation, software, and hardware
technologies have revolutionized the information te
chnology landscape. Indeed, this
cyberspace has become an integral part of every per
son’s daily life and the way we
conduct business. Protecting the sensitive content
of every nation’s cyberspace
infrastructure has thus become critical to ensure e
conomic growth, prosperity, and
advancement. However, the heterogeneous, dynamic, a
nd large-scale nature of modern-
day networked and information technology infrastruc
ture warrants novel analytical and
practical approaches for securing its assets and ma
intaining its trustworthiness.
Owing to its powerful analytical and modeling frame
works, game theory has recently
emerged as a key tool for building resilient, secur
e, and dependable networked systems.
Coupled with synergistic techniques such as dynamic
control, mechanism design, and
economics, game theory is expected to constitute th
e heart of a much needed science of
security. The goal of the GameSec conference to gat
her original contributions that
present theoretical and practical contributions tha
t will build the knowledgebase in the
science of security, in general, and game-theoretic
security, in particular.
The goal of this conference is to bring together ac
ademic and industrial researchers in an
effort to identify and discuss the major technical
challenges and recent results that
highlight the connection between game theory, contr
ol, distributed optimization,
economic incentives and real world security, reputa
tion, trust and privacy problems in a
variety of technological systems. Topics of interes
t include but are not limited to the
Game-theory and mechanism design for security.
Pricing and economic incentives for building depend
able and secure systems.
Dynamic control, learning, and optimization approac
Game theory for privacy in the context of applicati
ons and user data.
