A call for nominations has just gone out for a prestigious award, recognizing for the best paper at the interface of game theory and computer science published over the last decade. This is clearly a topic about which this blog’s readers should have some strong (and well informed) opinions! Note that the nomination period is less than a month, so get your suggestions in quickly.
Call for nominations for the Prize in Game Theory and Computer Science of the Game Theory Society. The due date is 15 May 2013.
The Prize in Game Theory and Computer Science of the Game Theory Society was established in 2008 in recognition of Ehud Kalai’s role in promoting the connection of the two research areas. The Prize is awarded about every four years, normally at the World Congress of the Society. The last award took place in 2008 in Evanston. This time, the Prize will in 2013 be awarded at the Workshop on Computational Game Theory in Stony Brook (July 16-18, 2013).
The Prize will be awarded to the person (or persons) who have published the best paper at the interface of game theory and computer science in the last decade. Preference will be given to candidates who are 45 or less at the time of the award, but this is not an absolute constraint. The amount of the Prize will be USD 2,500 plus travel expenses of up to USD 2,500 to attend the scientific event where the Prize is awarded.
The Game Theory Society invites nominations for the Prize. Each nomination should include a full copy of the paper (in pdf format) plus an extended abstract, not exceeding two pages, that explains the nature and importance of the contribution.
Nominations should be emailed to the Society’s Secretary-Treasurer, Federico Valenciano (at firstname.lastname@example.org ) by 15 May 2013. The selection will be made by a committee appointed by the President, and the result will be announced in June 2013.
