Special Issue "Algorithmic Game Theory 2020"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: algorithmic game theory; resource allocation problems; approximation algorithms
Algorithmic game theory (AGT) combines algorithmic thinking with game-theoretic, or, more generally, economic concepts. The study of AGT is motivated by the rise of decentralized computer networks, such as the Internet—that are not controlled by a single central authority, but emerged from the complex interaction between multiple self-interested agents, such as network operators, service providers, users, etc. These agents act in varying degrees of collaboration and competition.
We invite you to submit high-quality papers to this Special Issue on “Algorithmic Game Theory”. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Solution concepts in game theory
- Efficiency of equilibria and price of anarchy
- Complexity classes in game theory
- Computational aspects of equilibria
- Repeated games and convergence of dynamics
- Algorithmic mechanism design
- Coalitions, coordination, and collective action
- Network games and graph-theoretic aspects of social networks
- Cost-sharing algorithms and analysis
- Computing with incentives
- Auction design and analysis

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
