Sixth Viennese Workshop on

Optimal Control, Dynamic Games
and Nonlinear Dynamics

Theory and Applications in Economics and OR/MS

Vienna , May 21-23, 1997

First Announcement and Call for Papers

After five successful workshops on various similar topics the Sixth Viennese workshop on Optimal Control, Dynamic Games and Nonlinear Dynamics will again bring together researchers interested in the application of nonlinear methods in economics, operations research and management science. Topics of interest are optimal control theory, dynamic programming, differential games, evolutionary games, learning, economic modelling, chaos theory, complex systems and related fields. Theoretical contributions to one of these fields which are relevant to problems from economics or OR/MS are especially welcome but also applied modelling will be covered

The attendance will be limited, and due to the lack of sufficient financial support by private and public organizations a registration fee of ATS 1500.- (approx. US$150.-) will be charged. In addition to the scientific program an extensive social program will be organized.

by surface mail or fax. To facilitate fast and efficient communication, answers by email are prefered. Participants who wish to present a paper will be asked also to provide an extended abstract of 20 to 40 lines later. All abstracts will be refereed and accepted for presentation solely on the basis of their merit for the workshop. Each paper will be discussed by an invited discussant. Please help us with the organization of appropriate sections by providing a classification of your talk according to the following scheme:
  1. Stochastic optimal control
  2. Deterministic optimal control
  3. Dynamic programming
  4. Differential games
  5. Nonlinear dynamic modelling
  6. Complex systems and chaos
  7. Evolutionary game theory
  8. Adaptive learning
Some selected contributions will be published in a volume of the A-rated journal Annals of Operations Research dedicated to the workshop. Authors who present a paper at the workshop and intend to submit it to this volume should provide the full paper at the workshop at the latest. All submitted papers will undergo a strict refereeing procedure afterwards.
