Call for Papers

The topic of network control and optimization has been of increasing importance in many networking application domains, such as mobile and fixed access networks, computer networks, social networks, transportation networks, and more recently electricity grids and biological networks.
Both conceptual and algorithmic tools are needed for efficient and robust control operation, for performance optimization, and for better understanding of relationships between entities which may be cooperative or act selfishly, in uncertain and possibly adversarial environments.
The goal of this international conference is to bring together researchers from different areas with theoretical expertise in game theory, control, and optimization, and with applications in the domains listed above.

The topics of interest to NetGCooP include (but are not limited to):
• Hierarchical optimization in networking
