Sixth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice
Toulouse, France, 22–24 June 2016

About COMSOC-2016 ...

Computational social choice is a rapidly growing discipline at the interface of social choice theory and computer science. It is concerned with the application of computational techniques to the study of social choice mechanisms, and with the integration of social choice paradigms into computing (Read more.)

The Sixth International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2016) will take place on June 22–24, 2016, in Toulouse, France. It will be hosted by the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT) of the University of Toulouse. The aim of the workshop is to bring together different communities: computer scientists interested in computational issues in social choice; people working in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems who are using ideas from social choice to organize societies of artificial software agents; logicians interested in the logic-based specification and analysis of social procedures; computer science theorists analyzing algorithmic properties of social phenomena; and last but not least people coming from social choice theory itself: economists, mathematicians, and political scientists.

COMSOC-2016 is spatially co-located with Norms, Actions and Games (NAG-2016), which will take place on 20-22 June 2016 at the University of Toulouse, and temporally co-located with The 13th Meeting of the Society for Social Choice and Welfare, which will take place on June 28th–July 1st at Lund University, Sweden.

The Handbook of Computational Social Choice has recently appeared with Cambridge University Press. Copies of the book will be on display at the workshop.
