Fourth Conference on
"Logic and the Foundations of the Theory of Games and Decisions"
ICER, Torino (Italy), June 29 - July 2, 2000

Giacomo BONANNO (University of California Davis, U.S.A.),
Wiebe van der HOEK (University of Utrecht, Holland).

This is the fourth in a series of conferences on the applications
of logical methods to foundational issues in the theory of (individual
and interactive) decision-making. The previous three conferences took
place at CIRM (Marseille, France) in January 1994 and at ICER (Torino,
Italy) in December 1996 and December 1998.
LOFT4 has been planned in cooperation with the TARK community and
it is hoped that it will attract researchers who have participated
in past TARK conferences.
The aim of the LOFT conferences is to promote exchange across
different disciplines. The organizers express their
preference for papers which bring together the work and problems
of several fields, such as game and decision theory, logic,
computer science and artificial intelligence, philosophy,
cognitive psychology, mathematics and mind sciences.

The complete programs of the last two LOFT conferences
are available at:
LOFT3: http://www.econ.ucdavis.edu/~bonanno/loft3a.html
LOFT2: http://www.econ.ucdavis.edu/~bonanno/loft2.htm

Among the topics of particular relevance are:
1) Modal logic: multi-agent logic, temporal logic,
dynamic logic, probabilistic and multi-valued logic,
logic of belief revision, the logical-omniscience problem.
2) Game and decision theoretic applications of modal logic:
epistemic foundations of decision theory,
epistemic foundations of equilibrium concepts in games,
reasoning and belief revision in extensive-form games,
applications of complexity theory.
3) Learning and information-processing models: economic aspects
of information processing, learning in game-theoretic contexts,
inductive learning and inductive decision making.

The four-day conference will include 11 invited lectures and
11 contributed papers. Submission for contributed papers are
encouraged from all those who are working in one or more
of the broad areas above, whatever their professional fields.
Potential contributors should send one copy of an extended abstract
(not more than 3 pages) to:
The Organizing Committee, LOFT4
International Centre for Economic Research
Villa Gualino
Viale Settimio Severo, 63
10133 Torino, ITALY
(Fax: +39.011.6600082, E-mail: icer@inrete.it, URL:

Complete papers are also welcome, but they will not be
considered if they are not accompanied by an extended abstract.
If not obvious from the abstract, the authors should mention
whether and how their work fits the list of topics suggested above.

The deadline for submission is February 15, 2000, and authors will
be notified of acceptance decisions by March 31, 2000.

People presenting contributed papers will have their local expenses
(accommodation and meals) covered by ICER, while they are expected to
rely on other sources for travel expenses. Further details will be
communicated following acceptance of the papers.

Those who wish to participate in the conference
without submitting a paper should express their interest to the
Organizing Committee at ICER.

Selected papers from the previous LOFT conferences were published
(or are forthcoming) in special issues of Theory and Decision,
Mathematical Social Sciences, in a volume by Kluwer Academic Press and
in Games and Economic Behavior. It is the intention of the organizers
to publish a selection of the papers presented at LOFT4 in one or
more special issue of a suitable journal.
Details will be given at the conference.
