GAMES 2016, the 5th World Congress of the Game Theory Society, will be held at Maastricht University from 24 to 28 July 2016. Game Theory focusses on models of conflict, competition and cooperation, in which the different parties focus on their own individual aims. What are your best choices in light of what your competitors will do? How can you assign your staff as good as possible on all tasks that must be performed within your organization, taking into account their individual knowledge, skills and wishes? The societal importance of this field is illustrated by the Nobel Prizes in Economics that have been awarded to game theorists like Nash, Selten, Harsanyi (1994), Aumann, Schelling (2005), Hurwicz, Maskin, Myerson (2007), Roth, Shapley (2012), and Tirole (2014).
Aumann, Maskin and Myerson have already agreed to participate in GAMES 2016.
