Inter-Cell Interference Coordination (ICIC) is widely recognized as a crucial radio resource management mechanism to improve system performance of beyond 3G networks. This paper tackles the problem of ICIC in the downlink of cellular OFDMA systems where the resource selection process is apprehended as a load balancing game. We resort to a fully decentralized algorithm built on the one proposed by Berenbrinck et al [1] to attain the Pure Nash Equilibriums (PNE) of the modeled game in a bounded time.
