About the book

Game theory is at the core of decision-making methods and technologies, its applications range from strategic studies, economics, management, finance to biology, anthropology, cognitive science, and even engineering. Large scale games using multiagent simulations have become a major part of the Social Sciences and the Life Sciences. On the other hand, computational game theory and multiagent technologies are deeply linked to artificial intelligence (AI) research, with applications to robotics and software agents. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is driving game theory to the center stage, in terms of the interaction between human agents and artificially intelligent agents, incorporated in different systems and devices. Machine learning applications to game theory, as well as multiagent simulations, are crucial for the success of human/AI and human/robot interactions as well as for robot and AI ethics research. The current book aims to provide the reader with the state-of-the-art game theory, dealing with both the established and the new frontiers, involving applications of game theory, the connection with AI and machine learning, multiagent simulation in large scale games and new directions in game theory, including experimental game theory and quantum game theory (now expanded by the possibility of cloud access to quantum computing resources).

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: December 14th 2019

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: March 3rd 2020

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Book compiled, published and promoted

Expected publication date: May 2nd 2020

All chapters are copy-checked and typesetted before being published. IntechOpen regularly submits its books to major databases for evaluation and coverage, including the Clarivate Analytics Book Citation Index in the Web of ScienceTM Core Collection. Other discipline-specific databases are also targeted, such as Web of Science's BIOSIS Previews.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ana Golec

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
