A Workshop on
Mechanism Design and Computational Modeling of
Social Systems

School of Mathematics, IPM

November 19 and 20, 2014
(Aaban 28 and 29, 1393)
 Tehran, Iran



Social Systems are complex systems consist of enormous number of autonomous, heterogeneous and bounded rational agents who locally interact and generate macroscopic phenomena of the system. The goal of the workshop is to bring together many of people who are working in mechanism design and game theory from different approaches (economics, computer sciences, and mathematics) to introduce students the topics of research and set up a direction in computational modeling of social systems as an interdisciplinary area.
