Games have been utilized within logic for a variety of different
purposes such as semantic evaluation games, model comparison 
games, and proof games. On the other hand, logic has become 
increasingly important in game theory, in particular for the 
epistemic foundation of game-theoretic solution concepts. As the 
TARK (http://www.tark.org) and LOFT (http://www.econ.ucdavis.edu/
faculty/bonanno/loft4.html) conferences show, interaction between 
logic and game theory has become more diverse in recent years, 
exploring game logics, the use of game-theory in multi-agent 
systems, game-theoretic accounts of natural language phenomena, 
and the role of language in defining preferences. 

The workshop is part of the 13th European Summer School in Logic,
Language and Information (ESSLLI) which takes place at the 
University of Helsinki from August 13 until August 24, 2001 
(http://www.helsinki.fi/esslli). The workshop aims to provide a
forum for advanced Ph.D. students and other researchers from 
game theory and logic to present their research on (1) game-
theoretic techniques applied to logic, and (2) logical models or 
analyses of games and game-theoretic problems. We specifically 
invite presentations in any of the following areas:

1) Logical analysis of games, e.g. modeling knowledge, belief, 
   and information flow in games; applications of epistemic and
   dynamic logic to games 

2) Logic games, e.g. model comparison games, semantic evaluation 
   games, Independence-friendly logic

3) Game logics, e.g. extensions of program logics and modal logics 
   to investigate the structure of games in general

4) The role of language and logical definability in games,
   and connections between natural language and games generally
5) Logical approaches to multi-agent systems with a special focus 
   on game-theoretic aspects

Papers should not exceed 15 pages in length. A postscript or pdf
version of the paper should be submitted by e-mail to BOTH 
organizers before the deadline given below. Note that all workshop
contributors must register for the summer school.
