Von Neumann Lecture: Sylvain Sorin
Sylvain Sorin, Professor at the University of Paris VI (Pierre and Marie Curie), has been selected to present the von Neumann Lecture at the 2016 World Congress of the Game Theory Society.
Sylvain Sorin graduated in 1976 from the Ecole Normale Superieure de Saint Cloud and received his Doctorat d'Etat in 1981 from Paris VI. Since then he has made fundamental contributions to a variety of areas in the Theory of Games: repeated games, stochastic games, merging and reputation, and approachability. Beyond the force of his ideas, he has played a significant role in the cultivation and subsequent flourishing of what might arguably be called a "French School" of Game Theory.
