2nd Lund Conference on Games, Interactive Rationality, and Learning - G.I.R.L.13@LUND

Deadline for abstract submissions: January 23, 2013

Aims of the conference
The 2013 Lund Conference on Games, Interactive Rationality, and Learning ( G.I.R.L.13@LUND) intends to bring together researchers in philosophy, cognitive science, linguistics, and economics sharing interest in agent-based modeling as a tool to investigate the emergence of rational behavior in groups of less-than-ideally rational agents, through learning, and interaction.

The G.IR.L.13@LUND conference will focus on the evolution of inference, in the sense of: (i) evolutionary processes driven by natural selection, and: (ii) intra-contextual evolution of interacting agents inferences.

Subject
We welcome submissions of original research, primarily on the following topics:
- Relations between ecological rationality of choice and inference heuristics, and choice-, decision- and game-theoretic axiomatic approaches to rationality;
- Models of signaling games, evolutionary games, or games with bounded agents;
- Learning-theoretic approaches of inquiry, knowledge acquisition, and reasoning;
- Single- and multi-agent simulation-based approaches to learning and decision-making.

Submissions on related subjects not listed above are welcome.

Submissions
Submitted abstracts will be peer-rewied and selected on the basis of their quality and relevance to the conference topics.
Please prepare a 200-400 words abstract for blind review, in .pdf format, and submit it electronically at the EasyChair account of the conference: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=girl13lund

A full paper version will be due for inclusion in electronic proceedings made available before the conference (authors will retain copyrights). Please prepare papers (8-10 pages + bibliography), using the EasyChair LaTeX class (.doc is not an acceptable format). The style file can be downloaded here: http://www.easychair.org/publications/easychair.zip.

The conference will hold one or two poster sessions in addition of the plenary talks, depending on the number of submissions. In case you want to submit for a poster presentation, mention on your abstract “poster presentation”, and tick the box “abstract only” in EasyChair. Previously published research is accepted for posters, provided that the abstract submitted is not the one of the paper published, and the title is changed. Submissions accepted for poster presentations will be included in a separate section of the electronic proceedings (4-6 pages extended abstract).

Notification of acceptance : February 22nd 2013
