CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: Annual Workshop of the ESF Networking Programme on Games for Design and Verification, 7th - 12th Sep 2012 - Napoli, ITALY

http://www.games.unina.it/

GAMES 2012

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 and this year edition is the concluding one.

GAMES 2012 will be held at Universita' di Napoli Federico II, Italy.


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 2012 will be an informal workshop, without proceedings. Its programme 
consists of 10 invited talks, 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.
