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.
