GAMES 2010
   Annual Workshop of the ESF Networking Programme on
       Games for Design and Verification
            September 19 - 23, 2010
        St Anne's College, Oxford, UK

            CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
================================================================

The ESF Networking Programme on Games for Design and Verification is a European Network pursuing research and training on the design and verification of computing systems.  This network proposes a research and training programme for the design and verification of computing systems, using a methodological framework that is based on the interplay of finite and infinite games, mathematical logic and automata theory.  For details, see www.games.rwth-aachen.de/

GAMES is the annual workshop of the Network. This year's GAMES workshop will be held at St. Anne's College Oxford. More information about the games workshop can be found at http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/games2010.


SCOPE:
The scope of the workshop includes the mathematical and algorithmic analysis of finite and infinite games, the interplay of games with automata theory and logic, and applications of games, automata, and logic to the design and verification of computing systems.


PROGRAMME:
As in previous years, GAMES 2010 will be an informal workshop, without proceedings. Its programme consists of six invited tutorials, contributed talks (30 min) and short presentations (15 min). Contributed talks and short presentations will be selected by the programme committee on the basis of submitted abstracts. GAMES 2010 will also feature an open problem session, which will consist of very short (10 min) descriptions of interesting open problems about games.


INVITED TUTORIALS:
- Roderick Bloem   (TU Graz, Austria)
- Thomas Colcombet (Liafa, Paris 7, France)
- Fedor Fomin (Bergen, Norway)
- Paul Goldberg (Liverpool, UK)
- Tristan Tomala  (HEC, Paris, France)
- Wieslaw Zielonka (Liafa, Paris 7, France)


SUBMISSIONS:
Researchers who would like to present a talk at GAMES 2010 are invited to submit an extended abstract of up to two pages by email to games2010@comlab.ox.ac.uk by 1st July 2010. Decisions about acceptance will be made by 1st August 2010.


IMPORTANT DATES
Paper submission:    1st July 2010
Author notification: 1st August 2010
Workshop:            20-23 September 2010


SUPPORT:
