Classical studies of strategic voting have mostly focused on a single agent acting in conditions of perfect information. This approach has moved in recent years towards a study of manipulation as a repeated process or with the use of game theoretical notions. The aim of this workshop is to foster collaboration among researchers on these topics.
This workshop is supported by the COST action IC1205 on Computational Social Choice.

Here is a picture of the blackboard summarising open questions raised during the workshop.
