CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Logic and Games, 15 Jul 2014, Vienna, AUSTRIA

Despite its austere appearance, formal logic can often be viewed through 
the lens of game theory, whereby various logical concepts -- validity, 
consequence, provability, satisfiability, (in)dependence, possibility, 
etc. -- become animated as games. Going in the other direction, one can 
start with games and find logics, and various logical concepts, therein. 
The idea of viewing logics as games, and vice versa, is by no means new, 
but it has enjoyed a certain renaissance in recent years. The workshop is 
intended to serve as a magnet to attract the latest research in the spirit 
of connecting logic to games.


We seek contributions connected with:

+ semantic games
+ evaluation games
+ dialogue games
+ comparison games
+ logic games and complexity
+ games for nonclassical logics
+ game semantics
+ logic in games
+ game logics
+ logic of coalition games
+ computability logic
+ interactivity in logics
+ argumentation games
+ games and (dis)proofs
+ strategy calculi

The list is not exhaustive; any contribution cohering with these
themes is welcome.
