Meeting Description:

This conference aims to explore the state of the art of game-theoretic models in
the study of communication and language. The importance of the interplay between
participants in modeling the dynamics of communication has long been
appreciated. Only recently, however, have the specific models of game theory
been applied to this problem. Recent developments in fields as diverse as
evolutionary biology and multi-agent systems have shed new light on both the
sophistication of game-theoretic models and the breadth of phenomena they can
address. The goal of this conference is to consolidate perspectives and
encourage communication on this topic across disciplinary lines. As such, both
'communication' and 'game-theoretic model' should be construed as broadly as
possible; researchers in any field actively pursuing this endeavor are
encouraged to apply.

Call for Papers

Interested parties should submit a 1 - 2 page abstract summarizing material
suitable for a 30 - 40 minute talk.

Deadline: March 1, 2010
