Games, like logics, are tools for investigating the world, language, and 
their relationship. Semantic, dialogic, evolutionary, interrogative, 
argumentative, and pragmatic methods have been included into the toolkit. 
Following the recent increase in investment on games and game-theoretic 
methods in logic, language, computation and communication, we still need a 
better understanding of the possibilities of forming converging 
methodologies underlying these diverse contemporary currents. The purpose of 
the Prague Conference on Logic, Games and Philosophy: Foundational 
Perspectives is to explore the interfaces between logic and games with the 
eye on philosophical, methodological and foundational issues.

Preference is given to papers that make a definite contribution to 
philosophical, methodological and foundational issues underlying game-
theoretic approaches to logical, computational or linguistic research, 
including relevant historical and philosophical issues on the Theory of 
Games itself. 

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

+ Wittgenstein, C. S. Peirce
+ Language Games
+ Game-Theoretic Semantics
+ Dialogue Games
+ Interrogative Games/Philosophy of Science
+ Evolutionary Games
+ Diachronicity/Semantic-Pragmatic Change
+ Game-Theoretic Methods in Logic, Language, Computation, Communication

Among the invited speakers of the colloquium are Mathieu Marion (Ottawa, 
unconfirmed), Shahid Rahman (Lille 3), Gabrial Sandu (Helsinki), Wim Veldman 

Potential contributors are asked to submit a two page (including references) 
abstract; the deadline is 15 June , 2004. Abstracts are to be submitted by 
e-mail (preferably as PDF, PS or MS Word files) prepared for anonymous 
reviewing. (To prevent problems caused by e-mail failures, the receipt of 
every abstract will be confirmed within one week.) Notification of 
acceptance will be distributed by 15 July,  2004. Contributed papers are 
scheduled for approx. 40 minutes (including discussion). Please direct your
