Title: NRG Meeting: Mechanism Design for Spatio-Temporal Request  
Satisfaction in Mobile Networks
Presenter: Christine Bassem

Mobile agents participating in geo-presence-capable crowdsourcing  
applications should be presumed rational, competitive, and willing to  
deviate from their routes if given the right incentive. In this talk, we  
present our current work in progress, in which we design a mechanism that  
takes into consideration this rationality for request satisfaction in such  
applications. We propose the Geo-temporal Request Satisfaction (GRS)  
problem to be that of finding the optimal assignment of requests with  
specific spatio-temporal characteristics to competitive mobile agents  
subject to spatio-temporal constraints. The objective of the GRS problem is  
to maximize the total profit of the system subject to our rationality  
assumptions. We define the problem formally, prove that it is NP-Complete,  
and present a practical solution mechanism, which we prove to be  
convergent, and which we evaluate experimentally.
