Recently, the dynamic and interactive aspects of
communication, and information processing have become
central in logic,
linguistics and computer science. It is the interplay of
many actors with
goals and preferences, whether human or computational,
their core tasks. To account for these interactive
aspects, the notion of
a 'game' as a mathematical model of strategic interaction
with their own preferences on the possible outcomes has
proved to be
important in all those disciplines. The purpose of this
colloquium is to
encourage these incipient interactions between the various
thinking about games and interaction, and clarify their
and potential for fruitful collaboration.
The colloquium will be organized as an Academie
Colloquium of the Royal
Acedemy of the Netherlands (KNAW) and will consist of
talks by international speakers that cover various aspects
of games in
logic, computer science, economics, and linguistics. Each
talk will be
followed by a commentary and discussion.
We also plan eight shorter talks of 15+5 minutes (15
minutes talk, 5
minutes discussion) selected from submitted abstracts. We
researchers to submit abstracts for these shorter talks

We would like to emphasize the importance of the active
junior scientists, and therefore particularly encourage
PhD students and
junior postdocs to submit abstracts.
