WWW 2011 Papers on applications of Game Theory and Mechanism Design

The 20th WWW conference is happening in Hyderabad, India. Many papers are related (as far as the titles speak) to the applications of Game Theory to WWW. These papers encompass the models of  Internet related trade and the behavioral economics of the users. Some of them are as follows. Perhaps there are more papers which have the same flavor but I probably missed them. Nevertheless, this is going to be an interesting conference.
