Tenth Conference on Logic and the Foundations of Game and Decision Theory, Seville, Spain[Event Date: 2012-06-18]
[Expiry Date: 2012-06-18]
The Tenth Conference on Logic and the Foundations of Game and Decision Theory will take place from 18 to 20 June 2012 in Seville, Spain.
Game theory is a mathematical method for analysing situations where a person's success is based upon the choices of others. The field originally looked at so-called 'zero-sum games', where one player's gains are exactly equal to the net losses of another. With the development of information and communication technology in recent years, however, game theory now deals with a wide range of class relations, and has developed into an umbrella term for the logical side of science.
Decision theory is related to game theory. Used in economics, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, and statistics, it concerns identification of the values, uncertainties and other issues relevant in a given decision.
The topics set to be covered during the conference include:
- modal logics for games and protocols;
- foundations of game and decision theory;
- learning and information-processing models;
- bounded rationality approaches to game and decision theory.
