2020: The 16th Conference on Web and Internet Economics

December 7-11, 2020, Peking University, Beijing



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 Conference on Web and Internet Economics (WINE) is an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and results on incentives and computation arising from these various fields.

WINE 2020 will be held from Monday December 7th to Friday December 11th, 2020 in Peking University, Beijing, China. Authors of the accepted papers will have a choice to attend the conference virtually.


The steering committee, program and organization chairs of WINE are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. As already happened for other conferences, backup plans such as (partially) running the events in a virtual way are being considered. The scientific activity of the conference will take place, and peer review, accepted papers, camera-ready and proceedings will be accomplished as usual. For the physical conference, the health and safety of our community is our priority: attending and giving the talks will be safe, and virtual presence will be possible in case of remaining safety concerns or travel restrictions.

WINE 2020 solicits paper submissions. The program committee will decide upon a best paper and a best student paper award. Please refer to the call for papers for information on paper submission.
