DIMACS and The Princeton Center for Computational Intractability Joint Workshop on Decentralized Mechanism Design, Distributed Computing, and Cryptography

June 3 - June 4, 2010
Nassau Inn, Princeton, NJ

The Institute for Advanced Study and DIMACS are sponsoring a workshop on "Decentralized Mechanism Design, Distributed Computing, and Cryptography", which focuses on issues at the boundaries of these three areas. We hope to bring together researchers in computer science and game theory, who have been working on related topics, largely unaware of each other's efforts, for over 20 years.

The workshop will be held on Thursday June 3 and Friday June 4, 2010, at the Nassau Inn, Princeton. We plan to have a relatively light schedule of speakers, allowing plenty of time for interaction between participants.

If you are interested in attending the workshop, please send an email to dcc.workshop {at} gmail(.)com, preferably before January, 25, 2010. Although registration is free, the number of attendees will be limited; we want to keep the workshop small to allow lots of interaction. We will respond to emails by January 31, 2010, once we get a sense of the numbers.

Note that there will be a workshop on Mechanism Design at Princeton on June 4-5, organized by Eric Maskin and Stephen Morris; see http://www.princeton.edu/econtheorycenter/conferences/mechanismdesign/. We will try to coordinate some activities between the workshops.
