Call for Papers

The 2018 Arne Ryde conference on Learning, Evolution and Games (LEG2018) will take place at Lund University on June 4-5, 2018, funded by the Arne Ryde Foundation.

The conference is intended to bring together researchers who are interested in the evolutionary foundations of economic and social behavior, evolutionary game theory, and learning in games. We welcome submissions from anyone working in these areas, both theoretical and experimental/empirical work. We aim for a small conference (less than 30 speakers) where meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas can take place. Accommodation for all presenters will be provided courtesy of the Arne Ryde Foundation.

Keynote Speakers

Daniel Friedman (UC Santa Cruz)
Friederike Mengel (University of Essex)
Arthur Robson (Simon Fraser University)
William Sandholm (University of Wisconsin)
Jörgen Weibull (Stockholm School of Economics)


Submissions should take the form of a research paper in pdf format sent to no later than Friday February 2, 2018. We may also consider submissions in the form of an extended abstract in case authors are unable to submit a full paper. Authors will be notified of decision by March 1, 2018 at the latest. Accepted presenters should confirm their participation by April 2, 2018 at the latest.


Reception: Sun 3 June 2018.
