The focus of the workshop will be on techniques for designing incentive mechanisms in e-markets considering personal, social and and economic aspects of computational trust and reputation mechanisms. The workshop welcomes articles with research contributions in the fields of computer science, psychology, philosophy, management science which use a multidisciplinary approach to create incentives and address the problem of lack of honesty in e-markets.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Social, cognitive and computational trust, reputation and inventive models
• Robustness of trust, reputation and incentive mechanisms
• Attacks on, and defences for, trust, reputation and incentive mechanisms
• Cross-cultural approaches
• Components and dimensions of sociotechnical trust
• Game theoretic approaches to trust and reputation
• Risk management and trust
• Trust management dynamics
• Trust, regret, and forgiveness
• Economic drivers for trustworthy systems
• Trust and economic models
• Trust metrics assessment and threat analysis
• Context-aware trust assessments
• Evolution of trust
• Trust-based incentive mechanisms
• User interfaces to incentive mechanisms
