The workshop will be broadly devoted to Multi-Agent Systems
including topics such as social choice, fair algorithms, algorithmic
game theory, mechanism design, and network economics, with
applications to voting, matching, auctions, kidney exchanges, etc.
Objective: The focus of the workshop is promoting discussions that induce collaborative work.
Dates: Arrival day is Saturday, March 25th (but attendees are welcome to arrive on Friday 24th) with a full program scheduled for Sunday to Thursday. Departure day is Friday, March 31st.
The workshop takes place at the Bellairs
Research Institute in Barbados. The institute, owned by McGill University, is only metres from
the beautiful west coast beaches of
Travel: Barbados is a safe place to travel. Bellairs is a 30 minute taxi drive from Grantley Adams International Airport on the south-east of the island.
Visas: Visitors from North America and most of Europe do not require a visa to visit Barbados. Nationals of some countries, e.g. China, India, Iran, do require a visa. Visas can take three or four weeks to be issued so please apply early.
The basic format is short talks in the morning, research discussions in the afternoon, and a plenary talk after dinner. Full schedule TBA.
Accommodation: Lodging at Bellairs is spartan, usually two to a room, at a very modest
daily rate of $60 to $80 US per person. Rooms are of the level of student
dormitories. Do not expect the luxury of the incredibly expensive hotels on either side of
Food: Breakfast and dinner is provided for the entire group at an additional cost. We tend to buy lunch from local vendors.

Family Policy: To avoid distractions during the workshop, we request that family members join you either only the week before or only the week after the workshop, but not during the workshop.
