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 provided:
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).
