CF Participation: GAMES 2010

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



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

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

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.

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.

package will have their accommodation for the nights of September
19th-September 22nd pre-paid and will receive a contribution toward
travel costs.

To apply please send an email to stating
your affiliation, the name of your supervisor and your thesis topic.
Also we ask that you arrange for your supervisor to send a brief email
to the same address to indicate support for your application.

Since numbers are limited we encourage participants to apply as early
as possible.

Registration is now open. Please see for registration information.

The workshop will be held in the Mary Ogilvie Lecture Theatre at St
Anne's College, Oxford UK. See for
