Annual Workshop of the ESF Networking Programme on Games for Design and Verification, Paris

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 Universit Paris Diderot, France.


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 2011 will be an informal workshop, without

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.
