This workshop series

The purpose of this workshop series is to foster research at the intersection of game theory and the study of language. It notably aims at providing a platform for:
- game and decision-theoretic treatments of problems that are studied in the context of established research programs in linguistics, in particular, language evolution and language change, sociolinguistics, and semantics and pragmatics;
- studies carving out the linguistic implications of established modeling frameworks in game and decision theory, such as signaling, cheap-talk, Bayesian persuasion, ambiguity, models of interactive-knowledge and Bayesian dialogues; and
- methodological reflections on the interaction of game and decision theory and the study of language.

Call for Contributions - 2025

For the third edition of this workshop, June 5-7, 2025, we are particularly interested in:
- methods from evolutionary game theory, and
- iterative processes such as rationalizability and Bayesian dialogues (as studied in game theory) or the Rational Speech Act model (as studied in linguistics).

If you would like to give a talk at this event, please send a proposal (extended abstract or working paper) to:
not later than October 31, 2024.

Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis between now and October 31, 2024. Particular attention is given to studies exploring methodological connections between areas of research in different disciplines.
