Norm, Actions, Games (NAG 2016)

Event format: 
In strategic interaction, where multiple agents pursue personal objectives, conflict is bound to arise, as the actions of the individual agents have an effect on the welfare of the others. In such situations the need arises for the explicit regulation of individual and collective behaviour which has traditionally followed two alternative approaches, well-known in the economics literature: the spontaneous order approach, which studies how norms result from endogenous agreements among rational individuals or how conventions emerge through repeated interactions and learning, and the mechanism design approach, which studies how norms are exogenously designed in order to reach desirable properties.

The present symposium is motivated  by the conviction that the two paradigms to understand norms in strategic interaction are by no means incompatible and can be effectively used together for regulative purposes. The aim of the NAG 2016 workshop is to gather researchers looking at norms in strategic interaction from different perspectives, i.e., philosophy, computer science, game theory, logic, linguistic fostering discussion and interdisciplinary collaboration. Researchers will be given the opportunity of presenting their work in a stimulating environment, without novelty constraints on the contributions.

The two-day workshop will give opportunity for paper presentations and discussions. 
Potential contributors should submit an extended abstract of approximately 5-10 pages in PDF format using the following link:
Each submission will be reviewed by at least 2 program committee members.
