Rene van den Brink
is Professor of Decision Theory at the Department of Econometrics and Operations Research at VU Amsterdam, and research fellow at the Tinbergen Institute. He studied Econometrics at Tilburg University where he also defended his PhD thesis entitled ‘Relational Power in Hierarchical Organizations’. His main research interests/expertise are in the fields of Game Theory, Economic Theory and (Economic and Social) Networks, but also extends to other fields as Social Choice Theory, Discrete Mathematics, Operations Research and Water Allocation Problems. His main research topic is to study relational structures in economic organizations, combining Game Theory and Networks.
is the Allen and Lenabelle Davis Professor of Economics at the California Institute of Technology. His research interests include revealed preference theory, the theory of two-sided matching, and game theory more broadly. He has coauthored a book ”Revealed Preference Theory” (Cambridge University Press, 2016) with Chris Chambers, and serves on the editorial boards of the American Economic Review, Econometrica, and the Journal of Economic Theory.
is a professor at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Barcelona GSE. Her research interest is related to applied game theory. An important part of her research addresses situations with asymmetric information and studies the design of contracts and incentives. Her book ”An Introduction to the Economics of Information: Incentives and Contracts” (joint with David Pérez-Castrillo) is used in many universities as a textbook. She is fellow of the European Economic Association (EEA), the Spanish Economic Association (EEA) and the CESIfo, and elected member of the Academia Europaea.
from Tel Aviv University is the past Executive officer of the Israeli Chapter of the Game Theory Society, the Director of the Beno Arbel program for gifted young students, and the Academic Director of the Israeli team to the IMO. His research interests include stochastic games, stopping games, games with vector payoffs, and games with differential information. Together with Michael Maschler and Shmuel Zamir he co-authored the textbook ”Game Theory”.
The SING15 conference programme will consist of a small number invited lectures by highly distinguished scholars in the field and a larger number contributed papers, which are selected among all applications by a scientific committee of established researchers in the field to ensure a high scientific standard of the papers presented at the conference.
However, also contributions from Ph.D. students and researchers being at the beginning of their career are explicitly invited and a Best Paper Prize is awarded. Participants from all over the world are welcome to attend the conference. The language of the meeting is English.
The organizers welcome contributions from all areas of game theory, including, but not limited to:
- Cooperative games and their applications
- Mechanism design
- Dynamic games
- Evolutionary games
- Stochastic games
- Voting and power indices
- Learning and experimentation in games
- Computational game theory
- Game theory applications in fields such as:
- management, energy, health policy, industrial organization, and others
