CALL FOR PAPERS: Logic and the Foundations of Game and Decision Theory, 27-30 July 2014, Bergen, NORWAY

http://folk.uib.no/nmita/LOFT11

LOFT11 2014

AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE
This is the eleventh in a series of bi-annual conferences on the applications of
logical methods to foundational issues in the theory of individual and
interactive decision-making. Preference is given to papers which bring
together the work and problems of several fields, such as game and
decision theory, logic, computer science and artificial intelligence,
philosophy, cognitive psychology, mathematics and mind sciences.

The previous ten conferences took place in Marseille (France), January 1994,
Torino (Italy), December 1996, December 1998, July 2000 and July 2002,
Leipzig (Germany), July 2004, Liverpool (UK), July 2006, Amsterdam
(The Netherlands), July 2008, Toulouse (France), July 2010, and
Sevilla (Spain), 2012.

Among the topics of particular relevance are:

(*) Modal logics for games and protocols: epistemic and deontic logic,
multi-agent logic, temporal logic, dynamic logic, probabilistic and
multivalued logic, logic of belief revision.

(*) Foundations of game and decision theory: epistemic foundations of
solution concepts, information processing and communication in games,
belief formation and revision in games.

(*) Learning and information-processing models: economic aspects of
information processing, learning in game-theoretic contexts, inductive
learning and inductive decision making.

(*) Bounded rationality approaches to game and decision theory.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION:
The three-day conference will give opportunity for paper presentations and
discussions. Potential contributors should submit an extended abstract of
approximately 5 - 10 pages in PDF format through
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=loft11
