The GAMES-DYNAMICS-OPTIMIZATION (GDO) series has been a key event launched by GAMENET. Previous editions of GDO took place in Vienna (2018), Cluj-Napoca (2019) and Rome (2020). In 2022, we are happy to announce a new edition of GDO will take place at the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen from January 24-26, 2022. The program includes invited and contributed talks. Participation is free of charge, but registration is required due to a limited number of admissions. 

The aim of this workshop series is to bring together excellent researchers interested in computational approaches to Optimization and Games. In particular, the workshop is focused on recent advances in the following areas:

  • Continuous-Time approaches to Optimization
  • Continuous Optimization
  • Stochastic methods with emphasis on (machine) learning
  • Dynamical systems in Games and decision problems
  • Non-smooth/non-convex problems
  • Variational inequalities
