Call For Papers

Since 1999 the ACM Special Interest Group on Electronic Commerce (SIGecom) has sponsored the leading scientific conference on advances in theory, systems, and applications at the interface of economics and computation, including applications to electronic commerce.

The Sixteenth ACM Conference on Economics and Computation (EC'15) will feature invited speakers, paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials. EC'15 will be held as part of the Federate Computing Research Conference (FCRC 2015) in Portland, Oregon.

The conference will be held from Monday, June 15, 2015 through Friday, June 19, 2015 in Portland, Oregon, USA. Accepted technical papers will be presented from June 17 through June 19; tutorials and workshops will be held on June 15 and June 16. Accepted papers will be available in the form in which they are published in the ACM Digital Library prior to the conference.
The focus of the conference is research at the interface of economics and computation related to (but not limited to) the following three non-exclusive focus areas:

Theory and Foundations
Artificial Intelligence and Applied Game Theory
Experimental, Empirical, and Applications

Authors can designate a paper for one or two of these focus areas. Each area has dedicated Senior Program Committee (SPC) and Program Committee (PC) members to allow appropriate review of papers.
We are committed to accepting papers of the very highest quality on the interface between computer science and economics. If we receive a large number of such submissions we will hold some sessions in parallel, grouping these sessions by topic rather than by area.
EC publishes relevant papers on topics and methodologies that include:

Auction theory
Automated agents
Bargaining and negotiation
Behavioral models and experiments
Computational game theory
Computational social choice
Consumer search and online behavior
Crowdsourcing and collective intelligence
Data mining
Economics of information
Equilibrium computation
Experience with e-commerce systems and markets
Foundations of incentive compatibility
Game-theoretic models of e-commerce and the Internet
Information elicitation
Machine learning
Market algorithms
Market design
Market equilibrium
Mechanism design
Platforms and services
Prediction markets
Preferences and decision theory
Price of anarchy
Recommender systems
Reputation and trust systems
Revenue optimization, pricing, and payments
Social networks
Sponsored search and other electronic marketing
Trading agents
Usability and human factors in e-commerce applications
User-generated content and peer production

Submissions should be made at

The conference is soliciting full papers (as well as workshop and tutorial proposals; see below) on all aspects of research covered by the conference. Submitted papers should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance, and its relation to prior research. All submissions must be made in the appropriate format, and within a specified length limit; details and a LaTeX template can be found at the submission site. Additional pages beyond the length limit may be included as appendices, but will only be read at the discretion of the reviewers.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: To accommodate the publishing traditions of different fields, authors of accepted papers can ask that only a one page abstract of the paper appear in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper. Authors should guarantee the link to be reliable for at least two years. This option is available to accommodate subsequent publication in journals that would not consider results that have been published in preliminary form in a conference proceedings. Such papers must be submitted electronically and formatted just like papers submitted for full-text publication.
Simultaneous submission of results to another conference with published proceedings is not allowed. Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to EC, or published (or accepted for publication) at a journal prior to the submission deadline to EC, will not be considered. Simultaneous submission of results to a journal is allowed only if the author intends to publish the paper as a one page abstract in EC'14. Papers that are accepted and appear as a one page abstract can be subsequently submitted for publication in a journal but may not be submitted to any other conference that has a published proceedings.

The conference is soliciting proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorial proposals should contain the title of the tutorial, a two-page description of the topic matter, the names and short biographies of the tutor(s), and dates/venues where earlier versions of the tutorial were given (if any). Workshop proposals should contain the title of the workshop, the names and short biographies of the organizers, and the names of confirmed or candidate participants. Workshop proposals should also include a two-page description describing the theme, the reviewing process for participants, the organization of the workshop, and required facilities for the workshop. Informal suggestions for workshop or tutorial ideas can also be sent without a full proposal to the workshop and tutorial chairs at any time. Submission information can be found on the conference website.
