CALL FOR PAPERS: Decisions, Games & Logic June 28th to 30th, 2012 LMU Munich, GERMANY

DGL 12

Formal approaches to rational individual and interactive decision making is a dynamic and 
interdisciplinary field of research. The workshop series in Decisions, Games & Logic (DGL) 
started in 2007 and aims at fostering interactions between graduate students, post-docs and 
senior researchers from economics, logic and philosophy.

Each DGL features three tutorials, one on decision theory, one on game theory and one on logic, 
given by leading researchers. For DGL 2012, these will be:

- Decision Theory: Richard Pettigrew (Bristol)
- Game Theory: Amanda Friedenberg (Arizona State University)
- Logic: Sonja Smets (Groningen)

At DGL 2012,  we will have a round table on Qualitative vs. Quantitative Representations of Beliefs.
- Participants at the round table: Franz Huber (Chair, Konstanz), Richard Bradley (LSE), Branden 
Fitelson (Rutgers), Amanda Friedenberg (ASU), Hannes Leitgeb (Munich) and Sonja Smets (Groningen).

Each DGL features presentations by researchers. We invite submissions in the fields of decision 
theory, game theory, logic and formal philosophy. Preference will be given to conceptual work in 
these fields and work that combines interdisciplinary research in these fields.

We invite submission to DGL 2012 in the two following tracks:

1.	Extended abstract (up to 4 pages) for full presentations (25
         minutes). Each selected presentation will be assigned a
