Workshop Content

This workshop aims at the interrelation between interactions, games and protocols. How does computer science deal with nondeterministic interactions where the actions a system takes are not (completely) determined by the interactions the system is involved in? In computer science, nondeterministic interactions are usually described by protocols. However, these interactions can also be viewed as games. As to be expected, games have become an increasingly important modeling tool for computer science where nondeterministic interactions are involved – from foundations in game semantics and reactive systems to applications in communication protocols and electronic business applications. The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers from industry and academia together and to explore how a better understanding of the interrelation between interactions, games and protocols leads to better-designed and more reliable nondeterministic interacting systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to


We invite scientific contributions which explore new aspects of the interrelation between interactions, games and protocols, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. We encourage submissions that connect theory and practice.
