Call for Papers: Eighteenth Conference on Web and Internet Economics (WINE 2022)

  • 1.  Call for Papers: Eighteenth Conference on Web and Internet Economics (WINE 2022)

    Posted 06-16-2022 23:51


    Over the past two decades, researchers in theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, operations research, and economics have joined forces to understand the interplay of incentives and computation. These issues are of particular importance in the Web and the Internet, which enables the interaction of large and diverse populations. The Conference on Web and Internet Economics (WINE) is an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and results on incentives and computation arising from these various fields. WINE 2022 continues the successful tradition of the Conference on Web and Internet Economics (named Workshop on Internet & Network Economics until 2013), which was held annually from 2005 to the present.

    WINE'22 will have a forward-to-journal option to Operations Research and Management Science, among other journals (see below for more detail).

    The program will feature invited talks, tutorials, paper presentations, a poster session, and a plenary session on spotlights beyond WINE. All paper submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of the quality of their contribution, originality, soundness, and significance. Submissions are invited in, but are not limited to, the following topics:

    • Algorithmic Game Theory
    • Algorithmic Mechanism Design
    • Market Design
    • Auction Algorithms and Analysis
    • Computational Advertising
    • Computational Aspects of Equilibria
    • Computational Social Choice
    • Learning in Markets and Mechanism Design
    • Learning under Strategic Behavior
    • Coalitions, Coordination, and Collective Action
    • Economic Aspects of Security and Privacy
    • Economic Aspects of Distributed Computing and Cryptocurrencies
    • Econometrics, ML, and Data Science
    • Behavioral Economics and Behavioral Modeling
    • Fairness and Trust in Games and Markets
    • Price Differentiation and Price Dynamics
    • Revenue Management
    • Social Networks and Network Games

    Authors of the accepted papers will have a choice to attend the conference virtually.

    Important Notice
    To accommodate the publishing traditions of different fields, authors of accepted papers can ask that only a one-page abstract of the paper appear in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper. The authors should guarantee the link to be reliable for at least two years. This option is available to accommodate subsequent publication in journals that would not consider results that have been published in preliminary form in conference proceedings. Such papers must be submitted and formatted just like papers submitted for full-text publication.
    Simultaneous submission of results to another conference with published proceedings is not allowed. Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to WINE 2021, or published (or accepted for publication) at a journal prior to the submission deadline of WINE 2021, will not be considered. Simultaneous submission of results to a journal is allowed only if the authors intend to publish the paper as a one-page abstract in WINE 2021. Papers that are accepted and appear as a one-page abstract can be subsequently submitted for publication in a journal but may not be submitted to any other conference that has a published proceeding.

    Forward to Journal
    Upon submission, WINE authors would have a chance to select at most one from the following journals:
    Management Science, Revenue Management and Market Analytics area
    Operations Research, Revenue Management and Market Analytics area
    Games and Economic Behavior
    ACM Transactions on Economics and Computation
    Artificial Intelligence

    How does it work? If a WINE paper is accepted and the authors plan to use the forward-to-journal option, the authors must submit a one-page extended abstract by the deadline for the camera-ready version of the conference proceeding.

    The authors then have the option of submitting their journal paper by January 20, 2023, to the journal they have selected. The cover letter to the journal should specify that the submission is part of the WINE '22 forward-to-journal process. WINE papers that submit a final version by this deadline will be forwarded to the journal of choice along with the de-anonymized conference reviews. Note that a journal's participation in the WINE forward-to-journal option does not mean that other forms of previous publication are acceptable.

    What are the implications? The journal's department editor and/or associate editor can use the conference reviews to guide the decision-making process in whatever way the journal finds appropriate. We suspect the AEs might choose referees from among the set of conference reviewers, especially if they found the conference reviews informative. We would like to emphasize, however, that the conference reviewers are not required to accept such review requests. Furthermore, journals are not required to accept these papers (and may even choose to desk-reject them depending on fit).
