28 - 29 May 2010, Game Theory and Communication: Prospects and Syntheses

Date: 28 - 29 May 2010
Location: Center for the Study of Language and Information, Stanford University
Deadline: 1 March 2010

This conference aims to explore the state of the art of game-theoretic models in the study of communication and language. The importance of the interplay between participants in modeling the dynamics of communication has long been appreciated. Only recently, however, have the specific models of game theory been applied to this problem. Recent developments in fields as diverse as evolutionary biology and multi-agent systems have shed new light on both the sophistication of game-theoretic models and the breadth of phenomena they can address. The goal of this conference is to consolidate perspectives and encourage communication on this topic across disciplinary lines. As such, both "communication" and "game-theoretic model" should be construed as broadly as possible; researchers in any field actively pursuing this endeavor are encouraged to apply.

Invited speakers include Robert Stalnaker, Rohit Parikh, Prashant Parikh.

Send submission or any inquiries to Alistair Isaac at

Interested parties should submit a 1 - 2 page abstract summarizing material suitable for a 30 - 40 minute talk. Deadline: March 1, 2010. This is an interdisciplinary conference: submissions from any relevant field are welcome.
