Welcome to SAGT 2022

The 15th International Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory (SAGT) will take place at the University of Essex in Colchester, UK, September 12-15, 2022.

The purpose of SAGT is to bring together researchers from Computer Science, Economics, Mathematics, Operations Research, Psychology, Physics, and Biology to present and discuss original research at the intersection of Algorithms and Game Theory.

General information


The program of SAGT 2022 will include invited lectures, and presentations of  peer-reviewed submissions. Foundational work is solicited on topics including but not limited to:

  • Solution Concepts in Game Theory
  • Efficiency of Equilibria and Price of Anarchy
  • Complexity Classes in Game Theory
  • Computational Aspects of Equilibria and Fixed-Point Theorems
  • Repeated Games and Convergence of Dynamics
  • Algorithmic Mechanism Design
  • Reputation, Recommendation and Trust Systems
  • Network Games and Graph-Theoretic Aspects of Social Networks
  • Cost-Sharing Algorithms and Analysis
  • Computing with Incentives
  • Computational Social Choice
  • Fair Resource Allocation
  • Decision Theory, and Pricing
  • Auction Design and Analysis
  • Economic Aspects of Distributed Computing
  • Incentives in Blockchain
  • Internet Economics and Computational Advertising

Industrial application works and position papers presenting novel ideas, issues, challenges and directions are also welcome.

The symposium proceedings shall be published by Springer in its LNCS/ARCoSS series. Accepted papers will be allocated at most 18 pages in the proceedings (in particular, at most 16 pages for the technical part and at most 2 pages for references, in line with the submission guidelines). Alternatively, authors of accepted papers can choose to publish a one-page abstract in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper.

There will be a SAGT 2022 Best Paper Award, accompanied by a prize of EUR 1,000 offered by Springer. Selected papers from SAGT 2022 will be invited to a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: 10th May 2022 16th May 2022, 23:59 AoE
  • Notification: 1st July 2022
  • Camera ready: 15th July 2022
  • Tutorial Day: 12th September 2022
  • Conference Dates: 13th-15th September 2022

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit original research for possible presentation at the symposium. Each paper will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. It should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance, and its relation to prior research.

Submissions must be prepared in LNCS style. Each submission must be at most 18 pages long; at most 16 pages for technical contribution (including title page), and at most 2 pages containing references only. Additional material can be added in a clearly marked appendix which will be reviewed at the discretion of the program committee.

Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to SAGT, or published (or accepted for publication) at a journal prior to the submission deadline, will not be considered for publication as regular papers. Simultaneous submission of regular papers to another conference with published proceedings is not allowed.

Simultaneous submission of results to a journal is allowed only if the author intends to publish the paper as a one page abstract in SAGT 2022.

Submission link: Submit your paper through EasyChair.

Submission deadline: 10th May 2022 16th May 2022, 23:59 AoE

It is expected that every accepted paper will be presented at the symposium by one of the authors.
