The fifth epicenter Spring Course in Epistemic Game Theory

 

In 2018, our EPICENTER will organize the fifth

EPICENTER Spring Course in Epistemic Game Theory

Maastricht University, June 25 – July 9, 2018

 

 

Registration: If you want to participate, please send an E-mail to Andrés Perea at: course@epicenter.name

Please indicate clearly your university, type of student or position (bachelor-, master- or PhD student, or researcher), and your background/field of expertise.

The registration deadline is May 30, 2018.

 

Registration fee: The registration fee for this course is 80 euros. To see how you can pay this amount, please visit our course website: http://www.epicenter.name/springcourse/ The deadline for paying the registration fee is May 30, 2018.

 

Credits and certificate: At the end of the course there will be an exam, which is optional. So, you are free to participate without doing the exam. Everybody who attends at least 20 out of 25 sessions will earn an official certificate from the EPICENTER and our university. The certificate states that the workload of this course amounts to 200 hours, which corresponds to 6.5 ECTS. If you pass the exam, you get a special certificate saying that, next to successfully following the course, you also successfully participated in the exam. This should usually be sufficient to get 6.5 ECTS for this course at your home university.

 

About the course: Epistemic game theory is a new, fresh approach to game theory where the reasoning of people is at center stage. More precisely, it investigates how people like you and me reason in a game theoretic situation before they make a decision. Not only do we reason about the possible choices of others, but also about the reasoning of others. This type of reasoning will be our main theme of interest. The course offers a deep introduction into the beautiful world of epistemic game theory, and is open to advanced bachelor students, master students, PhD students and researchers all over the world.

Previous editions: In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 we also gave the EPICENTER Spring Course in Epistemic Game Theory. All editions were a big success, with highly motivated students from all across Europe and even outside (see our course website http://www.epicenter.name/previous-courses/  for some nice pictures from previous years, the names of the participants and the universities they came from). We hope the 2018 edition will be at least as good.
