What the meeting is about

Many notions in game theory are inherently computational, and in recent years, their efficient computational aspects have been important to several application areas, e.g. Internet related applications.
The workshop will focus on the following topics: fair resource allocations, Nash equilibria, market equilibria, mechanism design, auctions, fair cost allocations, stability and resource management for Internet.

Fellowships: A certain number of BICI-Unesco(ROSTE) grants are available. Students and young researchers that do not qualify can send an expression of interest to any member of the Organizing Committee.

The meeting will be held in the small medieval hilltop town of Bertinoro. This town is in Emilia Romagna about 50km east of Bologna at an elevation of about 230m.  Here is a map putting it in context. It is easily reached by train and taxi from Bologna and is close to many splendid Italian locations such as Ravenna, a treasure trove of byzantine art and history, and the Republic of San Marino (all within 35km) as well as some less well-known locations like the thermal springs of Fratta Terme and the castle and monastic gardens of Monte Maggio.  Bertinoro can also be a base for visiting some of the better-known Italian locations such as Padua, Ferrara, Vicenza, Venice, Florence and Siena.

Bertinoro itself is picturesque, with many narrow streets and walkways winding around the central peak.  The meeting will be held in a redoubtable ex-Episcopal fortress that has been converted by the University of Bologna into a modern conference center with computing facilities and Internet access.  From the fortress you can enjoy a beautiful the vista that stretches from the Tuscan Apennines to the Adriatic coast.
