  • Knowledge Representation
  • Logic
  • Distributed approaches and communication
  • Simulation
with areas such as:

    • Voting rules
    • Tournament solutions
    • Manipulation, control, and bribery
    • Preferences

    • Weighted voting games
  • Related topics like:
    • Judgement aggregation
    • Axiomatizations of Internet systems
    • Group recommendation
    • Software for collective decision making

Papers will have to be submitted electronically via this website. Paper submission is now open, and the deadline for submission is 15 March 2016. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Accepted papers will be collected in informal workshop notes. To accomodate the publishing needs of different scientific communities, we stress that authors will retain the copyright of their papers and that submitting to COMSOC-2016 should not preclude publication of the same material in a journal or in a conference with formal proceedings. Submission is restricted by the rule that each accepted paper should be presented by a different author.

COMSOC-2016 will also include a poster session. Posters will be selected based on abstracts of up to 250 words, which can be sent by email to, with the subject "COMSOC-16 poster submission", anytime before 18 May 2016. In the body of this email, please indicate whether you want to present at the Industry Day, at COMSOC, or both. Unlike regular papers, a single author is allowed to present multiple posters.

Please contact either one of the program chairs should you have any questions.
