CALL FOR PAPERS

AAAI-07 Workshop on Trading Agent Design and Analysis (TADA-07)
July 23, 2007 -- Vancouver, British Columbia
Submission deadline: April 10, 2007

Workshop description Trading agents have become a prominent application area in Artificial Intelligence because of their potential benefits in electronic commerce, and because they present a stiff challenge to models of rational decision-making. A wide variety of trading scenarios and agent approaches have been studied, creating a broad and rich research area. This workshop will focus on the design and evaluation of trading agents. Papers on trading agent architectures, decision-making algorithms, theoretical analysis, empirical evaluations of agent strategies in negotiation scenarios, and game-theoretic analyses, are all within the scope of the workshop.

This workshop will be held in conjunction with the 2007 Trading Agent Competition (TAC-07), with finals held during AAAI-07, but paper submissions need not be directly related to TAC. In fact, we encourage submissions related to other trading scenarios.
