Special Track on Game Theory and its Applications (GTA)

December 3 - December 5, 2015
New York City, NY, USA

Game theory is a formal framework with a set of mathematical tools to study the complex interactions among interdependent rational players. Game theory has led to revolutionary changes in economics, and has found important applications in politics, sociology, psychology, communication, transportation and biology. Evolutionary Game Theory (EGT) is a solid basis for understanding learning and constructing new learning algorithms. The Replicator Equations will appear to be an interesting model to study learning in various settings. As a result, EGT is considered to be closely related to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The aim of this special track is to bring together the state-of-the-art research contributions that address the fundamentals and sound theoretical models of game theory. In addition, the special track also serves as a forum to share the experiences of applying game theory to solve diverse problems in diverse disciplines and usage scenarios.
