Second International IEEE Workshop on Experimental Economics and Machine Learning


In conjunction with IEEE ICDM 2013 (December 7, Dallas, Texas, USA)

Download  EEML_CfP

As a part of renowned international conferences on different branches of machine learning, this workshop intends to integrate scientists from experimental economics with those from AI & Data Mining. First workshop – EEML 2012 – has been successfully accomplished at ICFCA 2012 and we look forward to encourage more and more researchers' interactions from both fields.

In Experimental Economics, laboratory and field experiments are conducted on subjects in order to improve theoretical knowledge about human behavior in interactions. Although paying different amounts of money restricts the preferences of the subjects in experiments, the exclusive application of analytical game theory does not suffice to explain the recorded data. It exacts the development and evaluation of more sophisticated models. The research area additionally includes experiments, where human subjects are involved into an interaction with automated agents. Nowadays experiments are conducted using state-of-art software like z-Tree, which produces huge text data sets.

The more data is used for the evaluation, the more of statistical significance can be achieved. Since huge amounts of behavioral data are required to be scanned for regularities and automated agents are required to simulate and to intervene human interactions, Data Mining is the tool of choice for the research in Experimental Economics. We hope that this workshop associated with the conference and other related workshops will help to gather researchers from data analysis and economic communities in order to gain the beneficial results.

All attendees to the workshop are required to register as participants of IEEE ICDM 2013. Information regarding registration is available by the conference organization on the conference site http://icdm2013.rutgers.edu/registration


ICDM has the unique tradition that all accepted workshop papers are published in formal proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press. The proceeding will be released in the IEEE Digital Library as well. This requires ICDM to uphold a very standard of quality for all workshop contributions.

1) Paper submissions is limited to a maximum of *8* pages, and follow the IEEE ICDM format requirements http://icdm2013.rutgers.edu/author-instructions

2) Submissions can be done over

3) Each submitted paper is to be carefully reviewed by at least two, preferably three, knowledgeable and experienced reviewers.
4) Every accepted paper is invited to be presented at the workshop date.

As by the ICDM tradition, at submission of papers for the conference, authors can indicate whether they want their papers fast-tracked to a workshop. These papers will be transferred from the main conference review track to the indicated workshop review track.


Once the decision on paper acceptance has been made, the authors will be notified that camera-ready versions of their papers should be prepared and submitted through the IEEE ICDM Workshop CyberChair submission system. Due to the strict production schedule of IEEE Press, these deadlines cannot be postponed.
