Decisions, Games, & Logic Workshop

Second Workshop in
Decisions, Games & Logic '08
June 30 - July 2, 2008, Institute for Logic, Language and Computation, Amsterdam



Idea: Interdisciplinary Workshops in Decisions, Games & Logic

The workshops facilitate exchange between young researchers working in the areas of logic, decision and game theory. Three invited speakers deliver lectures on decision theory, game theory and logic and the connections of these fields. Graduate students and young researchers present their work in both formal and informal sessions.

Second workshop in Amsterdam, June/July 08

Thanks to all speakers and participants for making the workshop a great event! We wish to thank especially Jim Joyce (University of Michigan), Oliver Board (Pittsburgh) and Eric Pacuit (Stanford) for their highly insightful tutorials, Richard Bradley (LSE) and Paul Egré (CNRS) for the lively discussion on conditionals, and Johan van Benthem (Amsterdam and Stanford) for the inspiring concluding remarks.
