5-7 February 2007, KNAW Academie Colloquium "New perspectives on Games and Interaction", KNAW, Amsterdam

Date: 5-7 February 2007
Location: KNAW, Amsterdam
Deadline: 29 November 2006

Recently, the dynamic and interactive aspects of logical reasoning, communication, and information processing have become central in logic, linguistics and computer science. It is the interplay of many actors with goals and preferences, whether human or computational, which underlies their core tasks. To account for these interactive aspects, the notion of a 'game' as a mathematical model of strategic interaction between players with their own preferences on the possible outcomes has proved to be important in all those disciplines.

The purpose of this colloquium is to encourage these incipient interactions between the various disciplines thinking about games and interaction, and clarify their common concerns and potential for fruitful collaboration. The colloquium will be organized as an Academie Colloquium of the Royal Acedemy of the Netherlands (KNAW) and will consist of fifteen invited talks by international speakers that cover various aspects of games in logic, computer science, economics, and linguistics. Each talk will be followed by a commentary and discussion.

We also plan eight shorter talks of 15+5 minutes (15 minutes talk, 5 minutes discussion) selected from submitted abstracts. We invite researchers to submit abstracts for these shorter talks before our deadline of NOVEMBER 29th, 2006.
