The EC 2021 conference invites proposals for tutorials and workshops to be held in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Economics and Computation (ACM EC). EC’21 will be held either virtually or in a hybrid format. In the latter case, tutorial/workshop organizers will have the opportunity to decide whether to hold their event in person or remotely.


Tutorials provide an opportunity to educate the community about emerging topics of interest, or about topics from related fields that merit additional attention from the EC community.  A tutorial is an opportunity to invite colleagues and young researchers to get excited about a well-defined topic, to prepare them to dive into the literature and to guide them to the most exciting developments and open problems. Typically, tutorials run for half a day (3-3.5 hours) and consist of a series of presentations by experts in the field.

Tutorial proposals should contain:

  • the title of the tutorial
  • the names, contact information, and short biographies of the organizers
  • a description of the tutorial theme
  • the organization/format of the tutorial
  • any related tutorials that have been run
  • required facilities for the tutorial

Tutorial proposals should be emailed to ec21-tutorial-chairs@acm.org.


Workshops provide an opportunity to bring together researchers to discuss emerging areas of research in an informal forum. Workshop schedules should be designed to promote discussion and debate. A workshop may include invited talks, contributed talks, panel discussions, poster sessions, open problem sessions, presentations of work in progress, or any other activities that stimulate new ideas for research. It is up to the workshop organizers to determine the format and technical content of each workshop and to solicit contributions, but we encourage workshops that devote some time to contributed content.

Workshop proposals should contain:

  • the title of the workshop
  • the names, contact information, and short biographies of the organizers
  • the names of confirmed or candidate participants
  • a description of the workshop theme
  • the reviewing process for participants
  • the organization/format of the workshop
  • any previous versions of the workshop
  • required facilities for the workshop
  • the desired workshop length (half-day, full day, etc.)

For accepted workshops, the desired length will be honored as closely as possible.

We especially encourage proposals that bring together participants with diverse backgrounds and experience.

Workshop proposals should be emailed to ec21-workshop-chairs@acm.org.
