IJCAI-PRICAI20 Workshop on Applied Mechanism Design (WAMD)

The 1st IJCAI-PRICAI Workshop on

Applied Mechanism Design (WAMD)


The aim of the workshop is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research and proposal in the fundamental challenges of mechanism design for real-world applications such as resource allocation, task allocation, and preference aggregation. As a crucial field of game theory, research on mechanism design has brought many novel solutions to the practice such as Google's ad auctions, kidney exchanges, student-school matching systems, online recommendation systems, online QnA systems, and digital/sharing economy platforms. Mechanism design has played an essential role in these systems to, for example, incentivize the users to behave in a desirable manner and optimize the resource/task allocations. Due to the tremendous development of IoT and social networks, system design has to consider the users' swift reaction and collision formation via their social interactions and also the heavy computational costs. We need to investigate new mechanisms to handle these new challenges in both theory and practice. Ultimately, we look for AI systems such as autonomous driving networks which interact with and make decisions on behalf of us. All the systems together will build the foundation of the future smart cities.


Research contributions related to algorithmic game theory, mechanism design, auctions, and social choice are welcome for the workshop. Topics and research questions to be explored include, but not limited to, the following:
