GIRLS16@LUND: Knowledge in a Digital World

The 4th Lund Conference on Games, Interaction, Reasoning, Learning and Semantics (GIRLS16@LUND) will take place at Lund University on April 27-28, 2016. The conference welcomes submissions from researchers in philosophy, cognitive science, economics, computer science, media science, and linguistics, using agent based models with bounded rationality, models of evolutionary dynamics, and other naturalistic approaches. The primary goal of the conference is to foster cooperation between these groups and help establish common interest in investigating the emergence of rational behavior in groups of less-than-ideally rational agents through learning and interaction.

This year’s conference theme will be “Knowledge in a Digital World” broadly construed.
