About GameNets 2021

Game Theory is a mathematical tool that can be used to model and resolve competing and conflicting interactions of decision-making entities using concepts of preferences and utilities. Although Game Theory evolved separately from the study of Data Communication and Computer Networks, it has, nevertheless, been used extensively to model networking decisions.

The area of Data Communication and Computer Networks has recently had some breakthroughs in the areas of 5G and beyond networks, smart information systems (including AI and big data technologies), cloud technologies, the Internet of Things, edge and fog computing, localisation and location-based services, network security, energy efficiency, vehicular networks, and others.

GameNets 2021 aims to present the state-of-the-art when it comes to the intersection of Game Theory and Data Communications and Computer Networks.
