Em julho próximo, a Universidade de São Paulo, por meio de sua Faculdade
de Economia, Administração e Contabilidade, promoverá o 2ND BRAZILIAN
WORKSHOP OF THE GAME THEORY SOCIETY IN HONOR OF JOHN NASH, on the
occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Nash equilibrium - the 1st São
Paulo School of Advanced Sciences in Game Theory.
O evento irá proporcionar uma oportunidade singular para o crescimento
da produção acadêmica em Teoria dos Jogos no Brasil, por meio de
mini-cursos, plenárias e semi-plenárias de pesquisadores renomados, além
da apresentação de papers em sessões regulares durante o evento.
A participação de matemáticos no desenvolvimento da Teoria dos Jogos tem
sido fundamental, como evidencia o próprio homenageado, John Nash.
Em virtude disto, tenho certeza de que o evento será também de grande
interesse para pós-graduandos e pesquisadores em Matemática no Brasil.
Desta forma, gostaria de pedir sua valiosa ajuda para auxiliar a
divulgação do BWGT2010 em sua instituição.

The 2nd Brazilian Workshop of the Game Theory Society in honor of John
Nash, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Nash equilibrium,
was chosen to be, by FAPESP, – The State of São Paulo Research
Foundation - the 1st São Paulo School of Advanced Sciences in Game
Theory. Because of this, we received extra funds to cover the travel and
hotel expenses of graduate students and/or junior PhDs, to be selected
by a committee, among those ones who want to attend the mini-courses and
to participate in the whole workshop. The funds will benefit 50
Brazilian and 50 foreign participants. We will also be able to partially
support regular speakers, who will have their papers accepted for
presentation and will participate in the whole event.
More specifically, two kinds of financial aid will be
S1. Financial support for travel plus R$1360,00, a little more than
eight nights in the Hotel L’Opera in single room. ( see the list of
official hotels for the event in our site).
S2. R$640,00, equivalent to eight nights in the Hotel L’Opera in double
room ( see the list of official hotels for the event in our site).
In order to apply for S1 the candidate must be a graduate student or a
young researcher (who got his/her PhD in the last three years). It is
required to register and to send the following documents by e-mail to

The candidate must participate in the whole event and must attend 4
mini-courses among the six ones offered: 1 -Non-cooperative games, 2
-Introduction to Auctions, 3 - Experimental Economics or Game theory and
Democracy and 4- Networks or Stochastic games: Algorithms and Existence
2. Recommendation letter written by the candidate’s advisor, with
the information about when the candidate plans to finish the graduate
course, if the candidate is a student. Otherwise, the recommendation
letter should be written by a Professor and should contain the
information about the year the candidate finished the graduate course.
3. A brief description of one page long of the research project
that is being developed by the candidate, specifying in which topic(s)
of game theory the project fits. This document must be signed by the
candidate and by whom writes the recommendation letter.
4. Curriculum vitae emphasizing the scientific production, if any.
5. Up dated transcript of graduate courses.
A group of candidates may be invited to present and discuss his/her
