NetGCooP  2011 International Conference on NETwork Games, COntrol and OPtimization

October 12-14, 2011, Paris, France


The topic of network control and optimization has been of increasing importance in many networking application domains, such as mobile and fixed access networks, computer networks, social networks and transportation networks. These all require tools (both conceptual and algorithmic) for a better and more efficient control operation, for optimization of their performance, and/or for a better understanding of the relationships between entities that may be cooperative or act selfishly, and in an uncertain and possibly adversarial environment.

The goal of this international forum is to bring together researchers from different areas with theoretical expertise in game theory, control, and optimization, and with applications in the domains listed above.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest to NetGCooP include (but are not limited to):

  • Hierarchical optimization in networking
  • Resource allocation and their optimization
  • Optimization and control theoretical tools in networking
  • Algorithmic game theory
  • Learning mechanisms in games
  • Computation of Nash, correlated, and market equilibria
  • Price of anarchy
  • Stackelberg games in netwokring
  • Incentives for cooperation between network entities
  • Network pricing
  • Preference elicitation and winner determination in combinatorial auctions
  • Flow and congestion control in networks
  • Transport networks
  • Control of queuing networks
  • Scheduling transmissions in networking
  • Optimization of wireless networks
  • Grid applications
  • Trust and reputation management
  • Electrical power networks
  • Formation of social networks
