Call For Papers
The topic of network control and optimization has been of increasing importance in many networking application domains, such as mobile and fixed access networks, computer networks, social networks and transportation networks. These all require tools (both conceptual and algorithmic) for a better and more efficient control operation, for optimization of their performance, and/or for a better understanding of the relationships between entities that may be cooperative or act selfishly, and in an uncertain and possibly adversarial environment.

The goal of this international forum is to bring together researchers from different areas with theoretical expertise in game theory, control, and optimization, and with applications in the domains listed above.

The Topics of interest to NetGCooP include (but are not limited to):

    Hierarchical optimization in networking
    Resource allocation and their optimization
    Optimization and control theoretical tools in networking
    Dynamic Programming and Hamilton-Jacobi equations on networks
    Optimal control, differential games and mean field games
    Algorithmic game theory
    Learning mechanisms in games
    Computation of Nash, correlated, and market equilibria
    Price of anarchy
    Stackelberg games in networking
    Incentives for cooperation between network entities
    Network pricing
    Preference elicitation and winner determination in combinatorial auctions
    Flow and congestion control in networks
    Transport networks
    Control of queuing networks
    Scheduling transmissions in networking
    Optimization of wireless networks
    Cloud computing and grid applications
    Trust and reputation management
    Electrical power networks
    Formation of social networks
    Competitive routing
    Biological networks
    Games for competition, advertisement or influence over social networks.
