Summer School on Game Theory and Models of Voting
The summer school 'Game Theory and Models of Voting' focuses on the study of instruments for a scientific analysis of electoral systems and voting situations. It is designed for PhD students, post-doc, and young scholars. The summer school has a distinguished interdisciplinary flavour, as the speakers come from multiple disciplines such as Mathematics, Economics, and Political Science.
The event aims to provide opportunities for direct contacts among the participants. The structure of the summer schools includes a series of introductive lectures on Game Theory and Electoral systems, followed by advanced lectures going deeper into specific topics such as Power Indices, Representativeness, Governability Indices, and Apportionment and so on. Throughout the seminar lectures will be given in the morning and the rest of the day wil be devoted to discussions.
Students can apply for fellowships of 500€ each, which will be assigned on the basis of a curriculum vitae before 16 June, 2012.
