13-th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
DYNAMIC GAMES AND APPLICATIONS
30th June-3rd July, 2008
The International Society on Dynamical Games
Modern game theory has evolved enormously since its inception in the 1920s by Borel and von Neumann. The branch of game theory known as dynamic games descended from the pioneering work on differential games by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school and from seminal papers on extensive form games by Kuhn and on stochastic games by Shapley. Since these early developments, dynamic game theory has made a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systems theory, engineering, operations research, biology, ecology
and the environmental sciences. On the other hand, a great variety of mathematical methods from differential equations to stochastic processes has been applied to the formulation and solution of many different problems.
The International Society of Dynamic Games (ISDG) was founded in Helsinki, Finland on August the 9th, 1990, during the Fourth International Symposium on Dynamic games and Applications. The symposium was the first to bring together researchers working in the fields of dynamic zero and nonzero-sum games.
We encourage students, young scientists and experienced researchers to come to Wroc³aw to learn and exchange ideas and knowledge on the modern game theory and its application.
