Pluridisciplinary Workshop

Toulouse, 19 to 20 November 2015

The LABEX CIMI Pluridisciplinary Workshop on Game Theory will be the highlight of the LABEX CIMI Thematic Trimester.  The workshop will be structured along four themes:

  1. TrimesterLogic and Games
  2. Algorithmic Game Theory
  3. Games and Voting on Networks
  4. Learning and Language in Games

On each theme, we will have some invited talks by internationally renowned experts, one talk by a local researcher and some submitted contributions, primarily by PhD students. See programme below.

Anyone can attend the workshop but registration (by sending an email to the organisers) is required.


The workshop will take place at the Lecture Hall (Amphi) Schwartz at IMT, Université Paul Sabatier. 

Descending at the Metro station Paul Sabatier (line B), you have to take the escalator on the right-hand side and walk straight for a couple of minutes up to the building 1R3 on the right-hand side (map).


Call for Contributions


If you would like to present your work at the workshop, please send a four-page extended abstract to the organisers by 20 September. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be on 30 September. There will be no proceedings, and there are no restrictions concerning whether the work is original or has been published.

Any submission must fit into one of the four above themes, and we ask you to indicate which.

We particularly encourage Master and Phd students to apply. For a number of students, student grants (travel and accomodation paid by the LABEX CIMI) are available. To apply for these, please send a short CV and a recommendation letter by your supervisor together with your submission. Please indicate with your submission if the grant is a condition for your attendance.
