Twenty Years of the Price of Anarchy

July 2-5 2019, Chania


Welcome to the 20PoA website! As we are closing in on two decades from the first works on the price of anarchy, the 20PoA workshop aims to put together a "retrospective" in the form of a celebratory meeting, to chart out the impact of the price of anarchy in game-theoretic thinking. The presentations and discussions during the workshop will attempt to examine the influence of PoA and related notions in Computer Science, Operations Research, and Economics, and to reflect on what the future holds.

The workshop will be co-located with ACAI-2019, a specialized course in Artificial Intelligence sponsored by EurAI and the 2019 Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Summer School sponsored by EETN, the Hellenic AI society.
