This year's topic "Language Games" can be interpreted in a double sense: We invite contributions that use game theory to study aspects of language as well as philosophical investigations of game theory as a "language game."

Notably encouraged are contributions on the following topics:

— game-theoretic treatments of problems that have been formulated in the context of established research programs in linguistics; such as: implicatures, presupposition accommodation, anaphora, vagueness, politeness in language, emergence of meaning, non-cooperative uses of language (flouting of Grice’s maxims),
— game-theoretic assessments of the Rational Speech Act model,
— linguistic interpretations or applications of Bayesian dialogues,
— methodological reflections on the interaction of game theory and the study of language.
