Computational social choice and theoretical computer science

Computational social choice is a research field located at the crossing point of economics and computer science. For the last 20 years, the latter has contribute to reshape and revitalize the field, by using notions and methods from computer science (and in particular: artificial intelligence, operations research, and theoretical computer science) for solving complex group decision making problems. I will give a few representative examples of the impact of theoretical computer science on this field: computational complexity of voting rules and related combinatorial questions; protocols and communication complexity of voting; algorithmic issues in fair division of indivisible resources.
