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.
