Fourth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice
Kraków, Poland, September 11–13, 2012
About COMSOC-2012 ...
Computational social choice is a rapidly growing discipline at the interface of social choice theory and computer science. It is concerned with the application of computational techniques to the study of social choice mechanisms, and with the integration of social choice paradigms into computing (read more).
The Fourth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2012) will take place September 11–13, 2012, in Kraków, Poland. It will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science of AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. The aim of the workshop is to bring together different communities: computer scientists interested in computational issues in social choice; people working in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems who are using ideas from social choice to organize societies of artificial software agents; logicians interested in the logic-based specification and analysis of social procedures; computer science theorists analyzing algorithmic properties of social phenomena; and last but not least people coming from social choice theory itself.
COMSOC-2012 is generously funded by several organizations and private companies, which will allow us to bring in a number of prominent scientists as invited speakers, whilst keeping registration fees very low.
