GameNets 2011

International Conference on Game Theory for Networks 2011

16-18 April 2011
Shanghai, China

Game theory provides a formal mathematical framework to study complex interactions among interdependent rational players. For more than half a century, game theory has led to revolutionary developments in economics, and has also found important applications in politics, sociology, psychology, engineering, and transportation. This conference will bring together researchers who apply game theory to analyze, design, and assess the performance of networks. Both the application of game theory to networking problems and the development of new game-theoretic methodologies that can be applied in that context are of interest. This conference will bring together researchers who apply game theory to analyze, design, and assess the performance of networks.
