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.
|Important dates and deadlines||
|Preliminary agenda||The workshop will be held Monday, July 23, 2007. We expect to accept 9-10 papers for 20 minute presentations, and a few for poster presentation.

Attendance at the workshop will be limited to about 75.|
Papers should be about 8 two-column pages. Manuscripts are
expected to be in English, in either postscript or PDF format. Papers
