One Hundred Years of Game Theory: Nobel Symposium in Stockholm

 I'm in Stockholm for a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Emile Borel's 1921 paper on Game Theory.

It's a three day conference, Friday through Sunday, but I gather that only Sunday will be publicly available on Zoom.

Here's the schedule for all three days:


My talk is on "Game theory and economic engineering: Dealing with big strategy sets, including invention of new strategies"

And here's the announcement and Zoom link for Sunday, Dec 19 (the day Borel's paper was presented in 1921)

One Hundred Years of Game Theory: Future Applications and Challenges

"On December 19, 1921, the mathematician Emile Borel published a paper which laid the foundation of game theory. He offered a new framework for analysis in economics, political science, and other social and behavioral sciences. The centennial of this publication is a good occasion to ask where we may look today for the next breakthroughs that will be important for future economics and other social sciences, and for biology and computer science. What are the most promising directions for application? What are the most important challenges?

Start time: 2021-12-19 at 14:30

End time: 2021-12-19 at 16:30

Location: via Zoom. Link will be sent to the email address provide in the registration form."


I hear that some of the scheduled speakers who expected to come in person on Sunday will, at the last minute, not be able to do so, due to various outbreaks of Covid, particularly at Cornell.  Fortunately we've become good at using Zoom...
