07431 Executive Summary - Computational Issues in Social Choice
Computational social choice is an interdisciplinary eld of study at the interface of social choice theory and computer science, with knowledge owing in either direction. On the one hand, computational social choice is concerned with importing concepts and procedures from social choice theory for solving questions that arise in computer science and AI application domains. This is typically the case for managing societies of autonomous agents, which calls for negotiation and voting procedures. On the other hand, computational social choice is concerned with importing notions and methods from computer science for solving questions originally stemming from social choice, for instance by providing new perspectives on the problem of manipulation and control in elections. This Dagstuhl Seminar has been devoted to the presentation of recent results and an exchange of ideas in this growing research eld. Keywords. Computational social choice, voting theory, fair division, mechanism design, co...
