The 16th International Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory (SAGT)

Welcome to SAGT 2023

The 16th International Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory (SAGT) will take place at Royal Holloway University of London from 4th-7th September 2023.

The purpose of SAGT is to bring together researchers from Computer Science, Economics, Mathematics, Operations Research, Psychology, Physics, and Biology to present and discuss original research at the intersection of Algorithms and Game Theory.

General Information

The program of SAGT 2023 will include invited lectures and presentations of peer-reviewed submissions. Foundational work is solicited on topics including but not limited to:

  • Auctions and pricing

  • Contract theory

  • Cooperative game theory

  • Cost-sharing algorithms and analysis

  • Decision theory

  • Efficiency of equilibria and Price of Anarchy

  • Equilibria, learning, and dynamics in games

  • Equilibrium computation and complexity

  • Fair division

  • Internet Economics

  • Incentives in Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies

  • Market design & matching markets

  • Mechanism design

  • Network games and graph-theoretic aspects of social networks

  • Reputation, recommendation and trust systems

  • Social choice and voting

  • Solution concepts in game theory

Industrial application works and position papers presenting novel ideas, issues, challenges and directions are also welcome.

The symposium proceedings will be published by Springer in its LNCS/ARCoSS series. Accepted papers will be allocated at most 18 pages in the proceedings (in particular, at most 16 pages for the technical part and at most 2 pages for references, in line with the submission guidelines). Alternatively, authors of accepted papers can choose to publish a one-page abstract in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper.

There will be a SAGT 2023 Best Paper Award, accompanied by a prize of 1,000 EURO offered by Springer.

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: 4th May, 2023, 23:59 AoE
  • Notification: 1st July, 2023
  • Camera Ready Deadline: 15th July, 2023
  • Conference Dates: 4th-7th September, 2023

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit original research for possible presentation at the conference. Each paper will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. It should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance, and its relation to prior research.

Submission Format

Submissions must be in single-column format, with 11-point or larger fonts, using single-spacing between lines and 1-inch margins all around. For example, authors may want to use the LNCS style, with the fullpage package enabled (in LaTeX). Submissions deviating significantly from these guidelines may be rejected without review.

This year, there will be no strict page limit for submissions, and authors are encouraged to submit the full versions of their papers. Still, the details of long papers will be read at the discretion of the program committee, so the authors are strongly encouraged to structure their paper in a way that includes a clear presentation of the merits of the paper and a discussion of the importance of the results, as well as an exposition of the key conceptual and technical ideas of the paper within the first 15 pages. Submissions shorter that 15 pages are also very much welcome.

We note that accepted papers will be allocated 18 pages in LNCS format in the proceedings. Please note that the LNCS format without the fullpage package has much wider page margins.

Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to SAGT, or published (or accepted for publication) at a journal prior to the submission deadline, will not be considered for publication as regular papers. Simultaneous submission of regular papers to another conference with published proceedings is not allowed.

Simultaneous submission of results to a journal is allowed only if the authors intend to publish the paper as a one page abstract in SAGT 2023.

Best Paper Award

There will be a SAGT 2023 Best Paper Award, accompanied by a prize of 1,000 EURO offered by Springer.

Submission Server and Deadline

This year, the submissions will be via OpenReview, a free submission platform that has successfully hosted prestigious conferences in the field for several years. The migration from EasyChair to OpenReview is because EasyChair has moved to a rather costly subscription model.

Please submit your work via the following link.

Submission link: OpenReview Server

Submission deadline: 4th May 2023, 23:59 AoE

It is expected that every accepted paper will be presented at the conference by one of the authors.
