Interdisciplinary Workshop
Game Theory at UC Davis
Organizers: Giacomo Bonanno, Burkhard C. Schipper, Department of Economics, UC Davis

Game theory studies strategic interaction in competitive and cooperative environments. It is applied across a wide variety of fields, including economics, social sciences, computer science, neuroscience, philosophy, biology, and engineering. The one-day long interdisciplinary workshop on Friday, April 25, 2014, shall bring together UC Davis researchers using game theory. The aim is to learn about game theoretic research by other researchers at UC Davis and explore potential collaborations.

Date: Friday April 25, 2014
