Call for Abstracts for the 3rd Lund Conference on
Games, Interaction, Reasoning, Learning & Semantics

Evolution and Cooperation

Lund, Department of Philosophy and Cognitive Science,
April 28-30, 2014
Sponsored by the Lund Research Group on Information and Information Quality (LU-IQ)

The 3rd Lund Conference on Games, Interaction, Reasoning, Learning and Semantics (G.I.R.L.S.14@LUND) welcomes submissions from researchers in philosophy, cognitive science, economics & linguistics, using agent based models with bounded rationality, models of evolutionary dynamics, and other naturalistic approaches. The primary conference aims are to foster cooperation between these groups and help establish common ground.

G.I.R.L.S. 14@LUND will be themed around Evolution and Cooperation.

Invited speakers (pending):

We welcome submissions that bear upon one or several of the following subjects:

  • Models of social learning and cooperative learning.
  • Models of signaling, cooperation, and reciprocal altruism (in both human and non-human animals).
  • Empirical results on human and non-human cooperation, learning and signaling
  • Applications of agent-based models of cultural evolution.
  • Theoretical foundations of multi-agent models with bounded rationality.
  • Algorithmic, evolutionary game-theoretic, and algorithmic game-theoretic models of strategic agents in cooperative setting.
  • Empirical results concerning agent strategies in game-like settings.

Submission format:

An anonymous short abstract of 250-500 words (exclusive bibliography) to be submitted in pdf format through our EasyChair account (link below) on February 7th, 2014, prepared for anonymous peer-review. Authors will be notified of decision by March 15th, 2014 at the latest.

Abstracts can be submitted to be considered as a talk or as a poster. Abstracts which are not offered a talk will automatically be considered for a poster slot.

To accommodate the varying publishing conventions in disciplines among authors submitting to G.I.R.L.S., authors will have the option to provide either an extended abstract (2-to-4 pages, including bibliography) or a short paper (6-to-8 pages, exclusive bibliography) for inclusion in the electronic proceedings of the conference no later than April, 10th, 2014 .

Short abstracts should include the following information:

  • For theoretical papers: Clearly state the main result, indicate the method & assumptions.
    • For empirical papers: Briefly state the method & results, and indicate their significance.
    • For simulation-based papers: Briefly describe simulation environment, boundary conditions & assumptions; state the main results & their significance.
