Scope of the workshop

Cassting is a European research project funded by the European Commission under the FP7 for Information and Communication Technology. The objective of Cassting is to develop a novel approach for analysing and designing collective adaptive systems in their totality, by setting up a game theoretic framework. Currently, most of the games played on graphs are of the sort “two-player zero-sum”, we aim to extend them to “multiple-player non-zero-sum”, and show the applicability of the new theory to the analysis and synthesis of interactive computational systems.

This 1st Cassting workshop continues the line of GASICS workshops, held from 2009 to 2012. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on game-related subjects, and to discuss on various aspects of game theory in the fields where it is applied. The workshop will be composed of two invited talks, together with contributed talks on the following (non-exhaustive) list of relevant topics:

  • Adapted notions of games for synthesis of complex interactive
  • computational systems
  • Games played on complex and infinite graphs
  • Games with quantitative objectives
  • Game with incomplete information and over dynamic structures
  • Heuristics for efficient game solving


An abstract no longer than 2 pages should be sent by e-mail to We welcome already-published works as well as reports on on-going research. There will be no formal proceedings, but the abstracts together with handouts of presentations will be made available to the participants. Contributed talks are planed to last 30 minutes.

Invited speakers

The workshop will feature two invited talks on game-related topics:

  • John Fearnley (U. Liverpool) — title to be announced
  • a second invited speaker to be announced
