Game theory provides a formal mathematical framework to study complex
interactions among interdependent rational players. For more than half a
century, game theory has led to revolutionary developments in economics,
and has also found important applications in politics, sociology,
psychology, engineering, and transportation.

Recently, there has been a surge in research activities that employ game
theory to model and analyze the performance of various networks, such as
communication networks, computer networks, social networks, biological
networks, molecular networks, and neural networks. There already exist
several successful examples where game theory provides deeper
understanding of complex network dynamics and leads to better design of
efficient, scalable, and robust networks. Still, there remain many
interesting open research problems yet to be identified and explored, and
many issues to be addressed. Moreover, studies of different networks
heretofore have largely been performed independently, although in many
cases it is apparent that they share many similarities in terms of problem
structures and the technical challenges they offer.

GameNets 2009, which will be held on the campus of Bogazici University, in
Istanbul, Turkey, on 13-15 May 2009, will bring together researchers who
apply game theory to analyze, design, and assess the performance of
networks. The conference will highlight synergies between various related
research areas and encourage discussions regarding the benefits and
limitations of game theory as a performance assessment and design tool for
networks. Both the application of game theory to networking problems and
the development of new game-theoretic methodologies that can be applied in
that context are of interest. The conference will feature plenary talks,
organized sessions focused on specific topics, and contributed papers.

GameNets topics include (but are not limited to)

* Distributed network resource allocation
* Trust and reputation management
* Security assessment and enhancement
* Dynamic spectrum assignment and management
* Cognitive radio networks

* Preference elicitation and winner determination in combinatorial auctions
* Stackelberg games
* Cooperative game theoretical models
* Multi-stage and repeated games
* Mechanism design

Instructions for Submission:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their contributions as extended
abstracts of up to 8 pages in single-column IEEE conference format pages
in a font no smaller than 10-points, with one-and-a-half line spacing, and
containing sufficient information to allow for a detailed review. Deadline
for submissions is November 15, 2008, and submissions will be web based.
Further information, with appropriate links and instructions will be
available on the conference website two months before the submission
deadline. Acceptance decisions will be sent to the authors by March 1,
2009. Final versions of papers to be included in the program will be up to
