Submit Papers


Submissions of two types are invited:

  • Reports of original results
  • Demonstrations of tools/technology

All submissions should be formatted as four-page extended abstracts (3 pages for content and 1 page for references). A pdf template is here: CI.1 Sample Paper.

In order to encourage a diversity of innovative ideas from a variety of fields, submissions may refer to work that is recently published, under review elsewhere, or in preparation, and may link to up to one publicly accessible paper for the purpose of describing the work in detail. However, submissions will be evaluated solely on the submitted abstract, which must therefore comprise an entirely self-contained description of the work.

After review by the Program Committee, a subset of submitted papers will be invited for oral presentation, as well as for presentation as posters and/or demos. A second subset will also be invited exclusively for presentation as posters and/or demos.

Accepted submissions (including for posters and demos) will be compiled into a single report which will be made available to conference participants. We emphasize that published abstracts are not intended to be considered archival publications or to preclude submission of the reported work to archival journals; however, we cannot guarantee that certain journals do not have policies precluding the publishing of extended abstracts.

Authors will not receive detailed feedback from the review process, and accepted abstracts will be included as submitted (i.e. submissions should be camera-ready) and presented as posters (no larger than 4′x4′) on display in room 411 West Hall.

This year’s conference will continue our recent focus on core questions within the field of mechanism design such as robustness, dynamics, and bounded rationality.

We also encourage papers that address cooperation, voting mechanisms, and social choice. Though the conference emphasizes mathematical models, we are open to experimental, computational, empirical, and philosophical papers.

Please contact with any questions.
