4th Symposium on

Games and Decisions in Reliability and Risk


June 17 - 19, 2015, Istanbul




36 researchers from 10 countries participated in the symposium.






Following the meetings in Washington by George Washington University (2009), in Belgirate by CNR IMATI (2011), in Kinsale by Trinity College Dublin (2013), the fourth symposium on Games and Decisions in Reliability and Risk (GDRR), was organized in Istanbul.

The objective of the symposium was to present novel use of game and decision theory in reliability and risk analysis and to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines such as economics, engineering, finance, mathematics, medical sciences, probability and statistics who find themselves working with, and contributing to this theme.

All sessions at this symposium were plenary, with a mix of invited and contributed talks.
