Over the past decade, research in theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, operations research, and economics has joined forces to tackle problems involving incentives and computation. These problems are of particular importance in application areas like the Web and the Internet that involve large and diverse populations. The WINE is an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and results on incentives and computation arising from these various fields.
