This is the seventh in a series of conferences on the applications of logical methods to foundational issues in the theory of individual and interactive decision-making. 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 logics for games and protocols: 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.
Submission Information

The three-day conference will give opportunity for paper presentations and discussions. Potential contributors should send an extended abstract of approximately 5 - 10 pages in electronic format (pdf), indicating "LOFT06 submission" in the Subject field, to: The deadline for submission is April 15, 2006, and authors will be notified of acceptance decisions by May 28, 2006.

Publication of Contributed Papers

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, Research in Economics and Knowledge, Action and Rationality (KRA), a special section of Synthese. A selection of the papers presented at LOFT06 will again be published at KRA.
