Annual Workshop of the ESF Networking Programme on
Games for Design and Verification
September 14 - 17, 2009
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
GAMES is an European Network pursuing research and
training on the design and verification of computing
systems, in a framework that is based on the interplay
of finite and infinite games, mathematical logic, and
For details, see www.games.rwth-aachen.de/
As in previous years, GAMES 2009 will be an informal
workshop, without proceedings. Its programme consists
of three invited introductory tutorial (90 min), 5
invited advanced tutorials (90 min), contributed talks
(30 min) and short presentations (15 min).
Contributed talks and short presentations will be
selected by the programme committee on the basis of
GAMES 2009 will also feature an open problem session,
which will consist of very short (10 min) descriptions
of interesting open problems about games.
The scope of the workshop includes the mathematical
and algorithmic analysis of finite and infinite games,
the interplay of games with automata theory and logic,
and applications of games, automata, and logic for the
design and verification of computing systems.
Researchers who would like to present a talk at GAMES 2009 are
invited to submit an extended abstract of up to two pages at
by July 15th 2009.
Decision about acceptance will be made by August 1st 2009.
We will be able to cover travel and accomodation costs
for a limited number of participants (especially students).

There will be no registration fee.
