Fundamental results in the mathematical theory of games were obtained early on in the 20th century 
by Zermelo, Borel, and von Neumann; after the publication of Theory of Games and Economic Behavior 
by von Neumann & Morgenstern in 1944, it quickly became of fundamental importance to economic 
theory, being applied later on to other fields such as biology, while in philosophy David Lewis 
Convention was an important early application. Games also played a significant role within 
mathematics, especially in model theory with, e.g., the back-and-forth games, and with the work 
of Lorenzen in the 1950s and Hintikka in the 1960s, game semantics emerged, again leading to 
important developments in philosophy, e.g., within epistemic logic. Showing again the extraordinary
fruitfulness and interdisciplinary nature of the concept of game, game semantics has become since a 
paradigm in logic and in computer science where it have been used inter alia to model interactive 
computation and multi-agents systems, as well as in linguistics and argumentation theory. The 
consequences on philosophy of these numerous developments need to be explored. In an 
interdisciplinary spirit, this conference will bring together a number of key contributors to and 
welcomes papers on the concept of games, game theory and game semantics, with applications in 
economics, logic, computer science, linguistics, argumentation theory, and philosophy.

The symposium is co-hosted by the Center for Cognitive Sciences and Semantics  
 of the University of Latvia and the 
Department of Philosophy  at McMaster University.
