Special issue information:
Nowadays, many important problems emerging from real-life applications require tools and techniques from theoretical computer science and economic theory, an area known as EconCS. In some applications there might be agents that act strategically, in which case we are interested in the existence, the computation, and the quality of stable outcomes known as equilibria. In other applications, there are agents with preferences over alternative outcomes, in which case the objective is to compute an outcome that satisfies different axiomatic properties or constraints related to efficiency and fairness. The Special Issue on Economics and Computation at Information Processing Letters will be a collection of original short papers studying problems that fall within EconCS.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Algorithmic contract theory
Algorithmic mechanism design
Auctions and pricing
Computational social choice and voting
Cooperative game theory
Cost sharing
Efficiency of equilibria and price of anarchy
Equilibria, learning, and dynamics in games
Equilibrium computation and complexity
Fair resource allocation
Network games and graph-theoretic aspects of social networks
