On behalf of the 2010 Workshop on the Economics of Networks, Systems,
and Computation (NetEcon '10) organizing committee, we'd like to  
invite you
to contribute papers covering the role of incentives in
communication and computation of large-scale networked systems. Please
submit all papers by June 4, 2010, 4:59 p.m. PDT (hard deadline).

The emergence of the Internet as a global platform for computation and
communication has sparked the development and deployment of many
large-scale networked systems. Often these systems involve multiple
stakeholders with divergent or even competing interests. Unmitigated
selfish behavior in these systems can lead to high inefficiency or even
complete collapse. Research interest in the application of economic and
game-theoretic principles to the design and analysis of networked
systems has grown in recent years.

Topics of interest to NetEcon '10 include but are not restricted to:

* Use of incentives and economic mechanisms in peer-to-peer systems,
grids, spam prevention, security, Internet routing and peering, wireless
networks, systems spanning multiple administrative domains, and other
computational systems
* Algorithmic mechanism design
* Methods for engineering incentives and disincentives (e.g.,
reputation, trust, control, accountability, anonymity, etc.)
* Mathematical modeling and analysis of strategic behavior (or the lack
thereof) in existing, deployed systems
* Empirical studies of strategic behavior, or the lack thereof, in
existing, deployed systems
* Critiques of existing models and solution concepts, as well as
proposals of better models and solution concepts
* Privacy, security, and anonymity in incentive-compatible computational

Submissions are due Friday, June 4, 2010, 4:59 p.m. PDT (hard deadline).

Call for Papers at:

NetEcon '10 will be co-located with the 9th USENIX Symposium on
Operating Systems Design and Implementation (OSDI '10), which will take
place October 4–6, 2010.

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
