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.
Confirmed invited speakers include:
The workshop will take place on the 28th and 29th of May, 2010.
