Fifth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, June 23-25, 2014
About COMSOC-2014 ...
Computational social choice is a 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 Fifth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2014) will take place on June 23-25, 2014, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It will be hosted by Carnegie Mellon University. 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 researchers coming from social choice theory itself: economists, mathematicians, and political scientists.
COMSOC-2014 is temporally co-located with the The 12th Meeting of the Society for Social Choice and Welfare, which will take place on June 18-21 at Boston College.
