Special Topics: Game Theory

The special topic calls for papers on Game Theory and such papers will appear in Management Science and Engineering as a special column.


Game theory is the mathematical analysis of a conflict of interest to find optimal choices that will lead to a desired outcome under given condition. To put it simply, it's a study of ways to win in a situation given the conditions of the situation. While seemingly trivial in name, it is actually becoming a field of major interest in fields like economics, sociology, and political and military sciences, where game theory can be used to predict more important trends.  In this special topic, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Game Theory.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Game theory for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Game theory” Special Topic, please go to http://www.cscanada.net. With your submission, please state clearly to the editor that your manuscripts are submitted to the Special Topic Game theory.
