Game Theoretic approach to Computational Complex Systems

July 9 - July 16, 2011, Lipari Island


The Jacob T. Schwartz International School for Scientific Research in 2010 opened a new set of summer schools on Computational Complex Systems
The 2011 edition addresses PhD students and young researchers to the forefront of research activity on Game Theoretic approach to Computational Complex Systems.
Recognized authorities in the field will give formal lectures tailoring these for an interdisciplinary audience.
Participants will also have the opportunity to present the results of their research during a short communication session.
As a whole, the planned summer school will allow participants to be exposed to cutting edge results in one of the most challenging research area, while at the same time enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of one of the most beautiful italian islands.
