During this coming ICS, I will be chairing a panel on “Algorithmic Game Theory and Economics: Area, Technique, or Fad?” with co-panelists Peter Bro-Miltersen, Silvio Micali, and Shang-Hua Teng. I would like to use this blog for two tasks related to this panel:
- I think that it would be nice to have an additional “devil’s advocate” panelist who can argue for something like “this whole AGT thing is a fad destined to be soon forgotten”. Ideas for such a possible panelist that will be attending ICS are welcome (as comments or in email to me).
- Questions to the panelists can be left as comments on this post.
