                    GAMES 2009

     Annual Workshop of the ESF Networking Programme on
            Games for Design and Verification

              September 14 - 17, 2009
                    Udine, Italy


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 
automata theory. 

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 
submitted abstracts.
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.
