Global Games in Ames 2016

Global Games in Ames 2016, a conference in economic theory, will take place in the Economics Dept. at Iowa State University on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, April 8 and 9, 2016. Each day there will be one session consisting of four paper presentations, each with a discussant.

Anyone who is interested in game theory in general, and global games in particular, is encouraged to attend. There is no need to register for the conference: simply attend whichever sessions interest you. However, space at dinner Friday night will have to be reserved. If you wish to attend this dinner, you must notify me by Friday, March 4, 2016 at the latest. Attendees who come to dinner on Friday night will be expected to pay their share of the bill, which for a 3 course meal with a beverage should run around $60 including taxes and tip. (In the case of presenters, these costs will be covered by the Economics Dept.)
