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

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.


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


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.
