GLLC-22 workshop on December 01: Questions, Games, Logic

Since its start in November 1999, the workshop series on Games, Logic, Language and Computation (GLLC) has brought together researchers from diverse fields, like logic, informatics, social sciences and humanities, with the aim of discussing connections within these different areas under the occasion of dissertation defenses on major themes.

The Questions, Games, Logic workshop (GLLC-22) aims to bring together researchers working at the interface between the three themes in the title broadly conceived in order to promote an exchange of ideas and to foster further research and cooperation. All three themes of the workshop have a close relation with the dynamics of information and recent developments have made the fruitful interchange between them even more promising and fertile. The contributions presented in this workshop will give the state of the art while also providing an outlook towards further advances that will bring the research fields even closer together.

The workshop will take place on 01 December 2011 from 14:00 to 18:30 in Room C0.01 (Potgieterzaal), at the ground floor of the University Library building, Singel 425, 1012 WP, Amsterdam, with the following program:
