INTRODUCTION

Logic and game theory form two theoretical underpinnings of multi-agent systems. On one hand, formal
logic is a foundation for knowledge representation and reasoning, and opens the door to techniques 
for formal specification and automated verification. On the other hand, the interaction of rational
decision makers has been studied in game theory for a long time. However, traditional game theory 
is not concerned with formal languages or reasoning systems, nor with computational issues, and until
relatively recently formal logic has not been concerned with game theoretic issues. For reasoning 
about interesting properties of many, if not most, multi-agent systems, we need game theoretic concepts
such as strategies, preferences, etc. In particular, many multi-agent systems can be seen as implementing
social choice mechanisms.

We invite papers on logical formalisation of concepts related to games and social choice, including but
not limited to the following topics:

- Logics for strategic reasoning
- Logics for coalitional ability
- Preference representation
- Logical approaches to bounded rationality and limited cognition
- Formal verification of games
- Logic for mechanism design
- Logical aspects of computational social choice
- Judgment aggregation
- Logical foundations of games and social choice
- Epistemic logic

SUBMISSION

We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which have not been accepted
 
for publication nor are currently under review for another journal or conference.

Papers are submitted to the special session by following the submission instructions for CLIMA:
http://centria.di.fct.unl.pt/events/climaXII/submissions.html
The special session on Logics for Games and Social Choice is chosen under "category" in Easychair.


PROCEEDINGS AND POST-PROCEEDINGS

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.

JLC Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will be invited to extend and 
re-submit their work to be considered for inclusion in a CLIMA Special Issue of the Journal of Logic
and Computation.

Important dates:
* Submission: April 4th (Abstracts) / April 8th (Papers)
* Notification: May 4th
* Camera Ready: May 16th

Special Session Organiser:
* Thomas gotnes, University of Bergen, Norway
