Submission Rules

Any candidate may submit a paper for presentation in a regular oral session or a research project for presentation in a poster section. The difference between a paper submission and a researcher proposal submission is that the research proposal is not expected to be as polished as a research paper. There will be different selection criteria for papers and research proposals. The submissions should be made on-line. The candidate should send either an extended abstract (up to 3 pages), or, if possible, a full paper/research project, written in English, before March 15th, 2014 (extended submission deadlines). This paper/research project will become downloadable from our website if your submission is accepted. A short abstract (up to 200 words) is also required. The abstract will be printed in the book of abstracts. Presentations should be made in English, the official language of the workshop. Acceptable formats for the files are pdf and word. Articles in all areas of Game Theory and Applications are welcome.

In order to submit a paper, go to the Paper and Research Proposal Submission page, create your own submission account, and then submit your paper choosing the option Regular Session in the option “SESSION TYPE”.

In order to submit a research proposal, go to the Paper and Research Proposal Submission page, create your own submission account, and then submit your paper choosing the option Regular Session in the option “SESSION TYPE” and then in the option “COMMENTS FOR CONFERENCE DIRECTOR” write: “This is a Research Project submission for a Regular Poster Session”.

Graduate students and young researchers (who got their PhD within the past three years) who need financial assistance may submit a research proposal as a FAPESP candidate. Student/young researcher proposals will be presented in a Special Poster Session.

In order to apply for the FAPESP financial aid the candidate must be a graduate student or a junior researcher (got a PhD within the past three years), must submit a research proposal by March 15, 2014 (new extended deadline).  To submit a research proposal go to the Paper and Research Proposal Submission page, create your own submission account, then submit your paper choosing the option FAPESP Candidates in the option “SESSION TYPE” and upload the following documents.

a) Motivation letter, a personal statement specifying the mini-courses the candidate wants to attend, explaining the importance of these courses for the research project and stating the candidate’s affiliation (the candidate’s institution).

A successful candidate must participate in the whole event and must attend 4 mini-courses among the seven ones, organized in the following 4 groups: 1-Market Design; 2- Cooperative Games or Stochastic Games; 3-Information Theory or Clubs, Coalitions and Networks; 4 – Social Choice or Introduction to Auction Theory.

b) Recommendation letter by the candidate’s academic advisor, stating the expected graduation date, if the candidate is a graduate student. Otherwise, if the candidate is a junior researcher, the recommendation letter should be written by a former professor and should indicate the conclusion date of the candidate’s graduate course.

c) A brief one-page-long description of the research project specifying in which topic(s) of game theory the project fits. This document must be signed by the candidate and by the recommendation letter’s author.

d) Curriculum vitae emphasizing the candidate’s scientific production, if any.

e) Updated transcript of the candidate’s graduate courses.

All documents should be attached to your research project submission in pdf format. However, if your advisor prefers to send the recommendation letter directly, please ask him to send it to the e-mail address: marildas@impa.br, writing clearly “Recommendation letter for (your name) in the e-mail’s “subject” area.
