Recent advances in networking, communications, computation, software, and hardware technologies have revolutionized the information technology landscape. Indeed, this cyberspace has become an integral part of every person's daily life and the way we conduct business. Protecting the sensitive content of every nation's cyberspace infrastructure has thus become critical to ensure economic growth, prosperity, and advancement. However, the heterogeneous, dynamic, and large-scale nature of modern- day networked and information technology infrastructure warrants novel analytical and practical approaches for securing its assets and maintaining its trustworthiness.
Owing to its powerful analytical and modeling frameworks, game theory has recently emerged as a key tool for building resilient, secure, and dependable networked systems. Coupled with synergistic techniques such as dynamic control, mechanism design, and economics, game theory is expected to constitute the heart of a much needed science of security. The goal of the GameSec conference to gather original contributions that present theoretical and practical contributions that will build the knowledgebase in the science of security, in general, and game-theoretic security, in particular.
The goal of this conference is to bring together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results that highlight the connection between game theory, control, distributed optimization, economic incentives and real world security, reputation, trust and privacy problems in a variety of technological systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
