Final Call for Book Chapter Proposals
Mechanism Design for Sustainability: Techniques and Cases
Proposal Submission Deadline: August 1, 2011
Book Editor: Dr. Zongwei Luo
Sustainable economy is an economy with “capacity to endure”, where bearable environment, equitable society and viable economy are well integrated with social, culture, legal, business, financial and environmental perspectives. To reach for this integration for sustainable development, it is essential to understand and study the mechanisms for interactions and impact from and among these perspectives. The mechanism design for sustainability intends to provide advanced analytics and decision management techniques and tools towards developing sustainable competitive advantages in the studied target context (e.g. enterprises, economic clusters).
This book will call for contributions of innovative concepts, theories and models, design methods and animation tools, and case studies and experience sharing in mechanism design to drive better decision makings with practical relevance to sustainable development.
The target audience of this book will comprise professionals and researchers as well as policy makers. In addition, the book will provide a valuable resource for business managers concerned with the enterprise/business sustainability.
We welcome proposals in the following, but not limited to, the topics relevant to sustainability:
- Classic mechanism design
- Dynamic mechanism design
- Incremental and evolutionary mechanism design
- Algorithmic mechanism design
- Mechanisms in mechanism design
