GameSec 2024

Conference on Game Theory and AI for Security

October 16-18, 2024, New York, USA

Call for Papers

The 15th Conference on Game Theory and AI for Security (GameSec-24) will take place from October 16-18, 2024 in New York, USA. With the rapid development of information, automation, and communication technology, the security of these emerging systems is more important now than ever. GameSec 2024 focuses on protecting heterogeneous, large-scale, and dynamic cyber-physical systems and managing security risks faced by critical infrastructures through rigorous and practically relevant analytical methods. GameSec 2024 invites novel, high-quality theoretical and empirical contributions, which leverage decision theory and game theory to address security problems and related problems such as privacy, trust, or bias in emerging systems. The goal of the conference is to bring together academic, government, and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major challenges and recent results that highlight the interdisciplinary connections between game theory, AI, control, distributed optimization, adversarial reasoning, machine learning, mechanism design, behavioral analysis, risk assessments, and security, reputation, trust and privacy problems.

Call for papers is available for download [PDF].

The conference encourages paper submission on applications of large foundation models in AI, including LLMs, to security and privacy problems as well as adversarial attacks on such models or limitations of such models in complex security domains.

Main Topics

  • Applications of game theory in security, encompassing both cooperative and non-cooperative games
  • Mechanism design for enhancing security and privacy protocols.
  • Deception and signaling techniques in security.
  • Security investment strategies and economic considerations.
  • Utilization of control theory principles for autonomous defense.
  • Integration of reinforcement learning techniques into cybersecurity measures.
  • Implementation and implications of cyber insurance policies within security strategies.
  • Techniques for risk assessment and effective risk management
  • Trust evaluation and management methodologies.
  • Integration of behavioral aspects into security and privacy frameworks.
  • Incorporating insights from behavioral sciences into decision-making within security contexts.
  • Applications of machine learning in security.
