CF Participation: GIPSy 2010: Games, Logic and Security


                                     GIPSy 2010

                   Workshop on Games, Logic and Security

                                  Rennes, France
                              15-16 November 2010


Many tasks in computer science, such as design, synthesis, verification, etc. can be formulated in game-theoretic terms. Game playing is thus a powerful paradigm that fits many situations in which interaction between autonomous agents plays a central role. Abstracting security problems as games reveals the underlying theoretical and algorithmic questions, and helps to clarify the relationships between different domains. As an organizational principle, the concept of game offers a fresh and intuitive way of thinking through complex issues. There is now ample evidence that the diverse applications mentioned above can benefit from common analytical techniques and insights offered by algorithmic game theory, automata theory and logic.

The main goal of this workshop is to gather researchers interested in games, logic and security (in a broad sense), and to offer a privileged forum to present their work and exchange ideas on these topics.

Three invited tutorials are scheduled:
Hans van Ditmarsch, University of Sevilla, Spain
Dynamic epistemic logic, protocols, and security
Jean-Franois Raskin, Universit Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium
Games with imperfect information: Theory and Algorithms
Tristan Tomala, HEC Paris, France
Secure communication in networks: Mechanism Design, Games and Cryptography

Apart from the invited talks, participants are welcome to give short talks (approximately 20 minutes). Selection will be made on the basis of an extended abstract of at most 2 pages. Submissions can contain work published elsewhere.

The registration is free but mandatory. Lunches and coffee breaks are included in the registration.

Important dates:
- Submission deadline: 22nd October 2010
- Notification to authors: 1st November 2010
- Deadline for registration: 4th November 2010
- Workshop: 15th-16th November 2010
