Computational social choice is a rapidly growing discipline at the interface of social choice theory and computer science. It is concerned with the application of computational techniques to the study of social choice mechanisms, and with the integration of social choice paradigms into computing .
The Seventh International Workshop on Computational Social Choice (COMSOC-2018) will take place on June 25–27, 2018, in Troy, NY, USA. It will be hosted by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). The aim of the workshop is to bring together different communities: computer scientists interested in computational issues in social choice; people working in artificial intelligence and multiagent systems who are using ideas from social choice to organize societies of artificial software agents; logicians interested in the logic-based specification and analysis of social procedures; computer science theorists analyzing algorithmic properties of social phenomena; and last but not least people coming from social choice theory itself: economists, mathematicians, and political scientists.
Submissions of papers describing original or recently published work on all aspects of computational social choice are invited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to computational issues that arise in the analysis of
