CFP: Special session: "Logics for Games and Strategic Reasoning" at CLIMA XI

Special session on ==Logics for Games and Strategic Reasoning==
      at CLIMA XI (Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems)
              Lisbon, Portugal, August 16-17, 2010
                    (colocated with ECAI'10)

                      1st Call for Papers

Submission deadline: May 7th.
Proceedings: LNCS/LNAI volume (available at the workshop).
Postproceedings: extended versions of selected papers will be published
in a special issue of Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence.


Strategic reasoning occurs in many multi-agent systems. This is
especially evident in game-theoretical and decision-theoretical models
of MAS, but also in more informal settings using the game metaphor (like
computer games or social network services). Mathematical logic can
contribute to this view in many ways by providing specifications,
models, and/or algorithms for game-like scenarios. We invite papers that
address how logic can contribute to our understanding, modeling and
analysis of games, but also ones that investigate how the metaphor of
games and strategies can help in constructing and using logical formalisms.

The list of subjects includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:
- Logics for reasoning about games and strategies
- Modal logics of strategic ability
- Logical foundations of game and decision theory
- Logical approaches to rationality and bounded rationality
- Solving games and verification of strategies by model checking
- Logics for mechanism design
- Game semantics for logics
- Games in verification of logical specifications


We encourage submission of high quality, original papers which have not
been accepted for publication nor are currently under review for another
journal or conference. Submissions should not exceed 16 pages in the
Springer LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see . Papers should be
submitted electronically via EasyChair: .


LNCS Proceedings: All the accepted papers (including special session
papers) will be published by Springer as a volume in Lecture Notes in
Computer Science, and will be available in time for the workshop.

AMAI Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will
be invited to extend and re-submit their work to a special issue of
Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence.


Paper submission:                              May 7, 2010
