COVID-19 updates

COMSOC will be held as a hybrid event, where the major part will be online. People will be able to present their papers and socialize using
The decision on what parts of COMSOC 2021 (if at all) will remain in person will occur towards the end of April, when we will hopefully have better information on the restrictions and constraints.
Any updates will be announced on the COMSOC website.
The paper submission and review process remains unchanged.

Main track

Submissions of papers describing original, under review, 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

  • Voting and collective decision-making
    • axiomatic properties
    • manipulation, control and bribery
    • voting equilibria and dynamics
    • Liquid democracy
  • Preference representation and elicitation
  • Opinion diffusion and aggregation on social networks
  • Judgement aggregation
  • Fair division, allocation, and matching
  • Coalition formation
  • Recommendation systems

We welcome theoretical, empirical and experimental work on these topics, including, in particular, research on algorithms (exact, approximate, parameterized, online and distributed), learning, logic, and simulations in the context of social choice.

As in previous years, we welcome submissions of papers that have been recently accepted or that are currently under review.

Papers will have to be submitted electronically via Easychair. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Accepted papers will be collected in informal workshop notes; however, the workshop has no formal proceedings and the authors retain their copyright. Each accepted paper will have to be presented by one of the authors, with the constraint that each workshop participant gives at most one talk (exceptions can be made due to unforeseen circumstances).
