Fourth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice

Krakow, Poland, September 11--13, 2012



Computational social choice is a discipline that emerged at the
interface of social choice theory and computer science. It is
concerned with the application of computational techniques to the
study of social choice mechanisms, and with the integration of social
choice paradigms into computing. The aim of the workshop is to bring
together different communities: computer scientists interested in
computational issues in social choice; people working in artificial
intelligence and multiagent systems who are using ideas from social
choice to organize societies of artificial software agents; logicians
interested in the logic-based specification and analysis of social
procedures; computer science theorists analyzing algorithmic
properties of social phenomena; and last but not least, people coming
from social choice theory itself.


Invited speakers will include Michel Le Breton (Toulouse School of
Economics; tentative), Clemens Puppe (Karlsruhe Institute of
Technology), Craig A. Tovey (Georgia Institute of Technology), Gerhard
J. Woeginger (Eindhoven University of Technology). There will also
be an invited tutorial by Rolf Niedermeier (Technische Universitaet


Submissions of full papers describing original or recently published
work on all aspects of computational social choice are invited. Topics
of interest include, but are not limited to:

o complexity-theoretic analysis of voting procedures
o computational aspects of fair division
o computational aspects of matching problems
o multiagent resource allocation
o cake-cutting algorithms
o distributed negotiation in multiagent systems
o preference representation in combinatorial domains
o computational aspects of preference aggregation rules
o preference elicitation
o social choice and constraint programming
o social choice and the web: ranking systems
o social networks
o belief and judgement aggregation
o algorithmic game theory
o computational aspects of coalition formation
o cooperative game theory
o social choice under uncertainty
o logics for collective decision making
o logic-based verification of social procedures
o communication complexity of social choice mechanisms
o computational issues in mechanism design

Paper submission is electronic via the workshop website. Papers should
not exceed 12 pages in length (roughly 5000 words) and should be
formatted according to the instructions available at the workshop
website. Accepted papers will be collected in informal workshop notes,
printed copies of which will be available at the workshop. Please
