Abstract

Editor ™s Introduction I am very happy to introduce Issue 7.3 of SIGecom Exchanges. This issue starts with several announcements about conferences and books. Das and Ostrovsky announce the rst edition of a new conference on Auctions, Market Mechanisms, and their Applications (AMMA). This conference (whose deadline is very soon!) will bring computer scientists, economists, and practitioners together. It is intended to complement the EC conference, with somewhat more of a focus on practical and empirical aspects (while still welcoming theoretical papers). Feigenbaum reports on the 2008 NetEcon workshop, which focuses on the application of economic and game-theoretic principles to the design and analysis of networked systems. She encourages discussion by SIGecom members on their hopes for NetEcon. Leyton-Brown and Shoham announce their two new books: their long-awaited Multiagent Systems, which contains a rigorous introduction to multiagent systems with deep coverage of game theory, mechanism design, and auctions, and Essentials of Game Theory, an 88-page crash course introduction to game theory.
