Workshop on Game Theory and Cryptography

Just forwarding this along (though I will be speaking at this workshop also):

Decentralized Mechanism Design, Distributed Computing, and Cryptography Workshop

Organizers: Ittai Abraham (Microsoft), Dino Gerardi (Yale), and Joe Halpern (Cornell).

The Institute for Advanced Study is sponsoring a workshop on Decentralized Mechanism Design, Distributed Computing, and Cryptography, which will focus 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 others’ 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.
