Moshe Tennenholz, Technion, Israel Rineke Verbrugge, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, The Netherlands AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE This is the eighth in a series of 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 seven conferences took place at CIRM (Marseille, France) in January 1994, at ICER (Torino, Italy) in December 1996, December 1998, July 2000 and July 2002, in Leipzig in July 2004, and in Liverpool in July 2006. 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 electronic format (pdf) to the LOFT 2008 EasyChair page at http://www.easychair.org/LOFT2008/ The deadline for submission is March 1, 2008, and authors will be notified of acceptance decisions by April 1, 2008. PUBLICATION OF CONTRIBUTED PAPERS: Selected papers from the previous LOFT conferences were published in a volume by Kluwer Academic Press, a volume in the book series "Texts in Logic and Games" (Amsterdam University Press) and in the following journals: Theory and Decision, Mathematical Social Sciences, Games and Economic Behavior, Bulletin of Economic Research, Research in Economics and Knowledge, Action and Rationality (KRA), a special section of Synthese.
