Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security

November 2-4, 2016, New York, NY, USA

Call for Papers

Submission for full papers and submission for posters have both closed.
Thank you to all authors for your interest in GameSec.

GameSec 2016 invites posters presenting recent results or work in progress relevant to GameSec topics. The poster session will be treated as a primary session within the conference program.

The poster session submissions should be in the form of an abstract of up to one page. Abstracts must be submitted by email to the TPC Chairs Tansu Alpcan (tansu.alpcan(at) and Manos Panaousis (e.panaousis(at)

Submission will be evaluated by the program committee and appear in proceedings. However, they will not receive reviews. (Call for posters [PDF])

Special Track on "Validating Models"

The real world use of game- and decision-theoretic models in cyber and physical security applications requires validating them. Gathering and providing empirical evidence for or against such models is a crucial step in our field's progress. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to find a home for such pain-staking validation and empirical evidence gathering in conferences that are more focused on novelty of theoretical models and algorithms. To remedy this shortcoming, GameSec will include this year a special track on "validating models." Papers submitted to this special track will undergo the same rigorous evaluation as the normal GameSec submissions, but the emphasis will be on validation, data gathering and empirical evaluation, possibly of existing models.
