26-29 November 2004, Foundations of the Formal Sciences V: Infinite Games, Mathematisches Institut, RhFWU Bonn

Date: 26-29 November 2004
Location: Mathematisches Institut, RhFWU Bonn
Deadline: 15 September 2004

Infinite Games have been investigated by mathematicians since the beginning of the twentieth century and have played a central role in mathematical logic. However, their applications go far beyond mathematics: they feature prominently in theoretical computer science, philosophical Gedankenexperiments, as limit cases in economical applications, and in many other applications. The conference FotFS V wants to bring together researchers from the various areas that employ infinitary game techniques to talk about similarities and dissimilarities of the different approaches and develop cross-cultural bridges.

We invite all researchers from areas applying infinitary game-theoretic methods (economists, mathematicians, logicians, philosophers, computer scientists, sociologists) to submit their papers before September 15th, 2004. Topics will include Games in Algebra and Logic, Games in Higher Set Theory, Games in Set-Theoretic Topology, Infinite Games & Computer Science, Infinite Games in Philosophy, Infinite Evolutionary Games, Machine Games, Game Logics, Infinite Games in the Social Sciences.
