As with previous editions, the proceedings of TARK will be printed, distributed to participants, and made publicly available, notably through the ACM Digital Library (ACM DL). However, the authors retain copyrights to their papers. Economists should be aware that special arrangements have been made with certain economics journals (in particular, with International Journal of Game Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, Journal of Economic Theory, and Mathematical Social Sciences) so that publication of an extended abstract in TARK will not prejudice publication of a full journal version.

Camera ready formatting for proceedings

Authors should sign the copyright form to allow publication by ACM DL. This form can either be scanned and sent ot Randy Hess at or faxed to +1 607-255-4428 (to Randy's attention).

Although in the past there have been no constraints on how TARK proceedings papers were formatted, with the increased number of submissions and acceptances, we have imposed a 10-page limit and decided to use a more uniform format, which should make the proceedings look more professional. Your submitted paper must be formatted in the TARK proceedings format, and must be submitted as a PDF rendering that uses only Type I fonts. We suggest to use Times, which can be done by adding \usepackage{times} to the preamble if using latex2e, or writing \documentstyle[proceed,times]{article} in the preamble with latex. You can find here a detailed description of the formatting style, as well as Latex style files proceed.sty and proceed2e.sty that will automatically generate the paper in the right format. The sample source files are named formatting.tex and formatting2e.tex, respectively. Note that the proceedings paper should not be generated with page numbers. The style file provided will omit page numbers, but if you are not using the style file, please ensure that you do not produces page numbers in your final PDF file.

Send the final PDF file to Randy Hess at by May 25, 2009.
