This COMSOC, we hope to initiate a small applications/industrial program. This will be the right venue for work dealing with applying social choice in the real world, from gerrymandering districts for political parties, through applying participatory budgets in municipalities, to dealing with office politics using a novel organizational decision making process. We hope to hear from people working, consulting or advising governments, regional offices, municipalities and organizations on how they build their systems, and which problems and challenges they are facing. This includes both talks or demos of actual products or techniques used in the real-world.
What Should I Do?
If you are a person using COMSOC ideas and techniques in industry — great! We’d love to talk to you about participating in COMSOC 2021. Please contact our industry chair (contact details below), and send about 2 pages describing your use of COMSOC techniques in real-world settings. Feel free to attach a link to your company, organization or institution.
Submission deadline is May 10, 2021.
If you are familiar with people in the decision making trenches, please forward them this call. Consider also forwarding the industry chair (details below) their details so that we may contact them as well.
