The role of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on social dynamics from a theoretical and experimental perspective. These fields have experienced unprecedented expansions in recent years, for a multitude of reasons. An important development is the spread of behavioral game-theoretic experiments both as tools for uncovering the fundamental motivations of strategic behavior, and as motivators for designing and implementing more effective social policies, including techniques of social engineering. This trend has been recognized by awarding the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics to Richard Thaler. Another reason is the adoption of game-theoretic tools in various domains of computer science and engineering, and the cross-pollination of ideas from algorithmic game theory, multi-agent-systems, dynamical systems, complexity theory mechanism design, etc.
