Leipzig (Germany), July 16 - 18, 2004
Giacomo BONANNO (University of California Davis,U.S.A.)
Wiebe van der HOEK (University of Liverpool, U.K.)
Pierfrancesco LA MURA (Handelshochschule, Leipzig, Germany)
Arnis VILKS (Handelshochschule, Leipzig, Germany)

This is the sixth 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 five conferences
took place at CIRM (Marseille, France) in
January 1994 and at ICER (Torino, Italy) in
December 1996, December 1998, July 2000 and July 2002.
The complete programs of the last five conferences are at
The aim of the LOFT conferences is to promote exchange
across different disciplines. Preference is given to
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. Among the topics of particular relevance are:
· Modal logic: epistemic and deontic logic, multi-agent logic,
temporal logic, dynamic logic, probabilistic and multi-valued
logic, logic of belief revision.
· Foundations of game and decision theory: epistemic
foundations of solution concepts, information processing
and communication in games, belief formation and revision
in games.
· Learning and information-processing models: economic
aspects of information processing, learning in
game-theoretic contexts, inductive learning and
inductive decision making.
· Bounded rationality approaches to game and decision theory.
The three-day conference will include 6 invited lectures
and 15 contributed papers. Potential contributors should
send an extended abstract of approximately 3 pages in
electronic format (pdf, dvi, MS Word or text),
indicating "LOFT6 submission" in the Subject field, to:
gfbonanno at ucdavis.edu
The deadline for submission is March 31, 2004, and
authors will be notified of acceptance decisions by
May 15, 2004.
Those who wish to participate in the conference without
submitting a paper should express their interest to the
Organizing Committee by sending an e-mail to
gfbonanno at ucdavis.edu
Selected papers from the previous LOFT conferences
were published in a volume by Kluwer Academic Press
and in the following journals: Theory and Decision,
Mathematical Social Sciences, Games and Economic Behavior,
Bulletin of Economic Research and Research in Economics.
It is the intention of the organizers to publish a
selection of the papers presented at LOFT6 in a
suitable platform.
