Welcome

We are pleased to announce that the RES-York Summer School on Game Theory is to take place on 17-18 June 2013 in York, UK, jointly supported by the Royal Economic Society and the Department of Economics and Related Studies, University of York. The school consists of three mini-courses given by three leading game theorists: 

Vincent Crawford (Oxford):

Strategic Thinking with Asymmetric Information

Fuhito Kojima (Stanford):

Matching and Market Design

Larry Samuelson (Yale):

Reputations in Repeated Games


We welcome anyone, and particularly PhD students and early career researchers, who have reasonable background and genuine interests in game theory to participate. We anticipate an attendance of 40-50 attendees. Due to the capacity constraint, we will have to follow a competitive selection process. A limited number of stipends will be available to subsidise travel for those who lack resource. To make an application, please email your CV and one-page application letter to: gametheory@york.ac.uk

Important dates:

30 April 2013: Application deadline;
