 Enrico COLOMBATTO (University of Turin and ICER, Italy)
 Wiebe van der HOEK (University of Utrecht, Holland, and University of Liverpool, U.K.)


      This is the fifth in a series of conferences on the applications of logical methods to foundational issues in the theory of individual and interactive decision-making. The previous four conferences took place at CIRM (Marseille, France) in January 1994 and at ICER (Torino, Italy) in December 1996, December 1998 and July 2000. The complete programs of the last three LOFT conferences are available at:
      The aim of the LOFT conferences is to promote exchange across different disciplines. Preference is given to papers which bring together the work and problems of several fields, such as game and decision theory, logic, computer science and artificial intelligence, philosophy, cognitive psychology, mathematics and mind sciences.  Among the topics of particular relevance are:


      The three-day conference will include 11 invited lectures and 11 contributed papers. Potential contributors should send an extended abstract of approximately 3 pages in electronic format (pdf, dvi, MS Word or text),  indicating "LOFT5 submission" in the Subject field, to:
  The deadline for submission is February 15, 2002, and authors will be notified of acceptance decisions by March 31, 2002.
      People presenting contributed papers will have their local expenses (accommodation and meals) covered by ICER, while they are expected to rely on other sources for travel expenses.
      Those who wish to participate in the conference without submitting a paper should express their interest to ICER (

   Selected papers from the previous LOFT conferences were published in a volume by Kluwer Academic Press and in the following journals: Theory and Decision, Mathematical Social Sciences, Games and Economic Behavior and Bulletin of Economic Research. It is the intention of the organizers to publish a selection of the papers presented at LOFT5 in a suitable platform.
