Speakers

Mark Broom
He obtained a BA (Hons) in Mathematics from the University of Oxford in 1989, followed by an MSc in Statistics (1990) and a PhD in Mathematics (1993) at the University of Sheffield. He then held a postdoctoral research position again at Sheffield (1993-5) and a temporary lecturing position at the University of Glasgow (1995-6). He joined the University of Sussex as a Lecturer in 1996, where he worked until the end of 2009, most recently as Reader in Mathematics, and he was the Head of the Department of Mathematics from 2007 to 2009. He was appointed as Professor of Mathematics at City University London in January 2010. His research interests are in Mathematical Biology, in particular Evolutionary Game Theory, and he has published just under 100 papers. This includes both theoretical work on general games and the modelling of specific animal behaviours. Main research areas include multiplayer game theory, models of food stealing (kleptoparasitism), the signalling behaviour of prey species, and evolutionary processes on graphs. In 2013, together with Jan Rychtář, he completed the book Game-Theoretical Models in Biology published by Chapman and Hall.

Maurizio Falcone
He is Professor of Numerical Analysis at the Mathematics Department of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. He serves as associate editor for Dynamic Games and Applications and is the author of about 80 papers in international journals and of the book (with R. Ferretti) “Semi-Lagrangian approximation schemes for linear and Hamilton-Jacobi equations”, SIAM, 2014. He has been a member of the scientific board of the CASPUR Consortium for Scientific Computing (2002–2012), of the steering committee of the ESF Network “Optimization with PDE Constraints” (2008–2012) and of the ITN Marie Curie SADCO “Sensitivity Analysis for Deterministic Controller DESIGN” (2011-2014). He has been an invited professor at several institutions including ENSTA (Paris), the IMA (Minneapolis), Paris 6 and 7, PIMS (Vancouver and Banff), the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow and Ekaterinburg) and UCLA. He has coordinated some international research projects with France and Russia. His main research areas are numerical analysis, control theory and differential games, PDEs and image processing.

Vito Franco Fragnelli
He is Associate Professor of Game Theory. His scientific contributions are on Cost allocation problems, Operations Research games, Bankruptcy games, Fair division, Electoral systems, Co-insurance games, Emergency management with about 120 papers, more than 80 of which with international diffusion. He is in the Editorial Board of Operations Research and Decisions. He was Italian representative in the SING committee; he was responsible of several research projects; he organized several International Meetings and Workshops; he was invited speaker at various Workshops. He organizes and directs the series of Summer Schools “Game Theory and …” from 2012 and was involved in several other Schools. He was invited at several universities.

Anna Jaśkiewicz
She received Ph.D. degree in mathematics from Wrocław University of Technology (Poland) in 2003. Her research interests include stochastic dynamic optimisation, game theory, and mathematical economics. She is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Pure and Applied Mathematics at Wrocław University of Technology. She is an Associate Editor of Operations Research Letters.

Georges Zaccour
He holds the Chair in Game Theory and Management at HEC Montréal. He served as director of the GERAD, an interuniversity research center, and director of the Marketing Department and the PhD program at HEC Montréal. His research areas cover dynamic games, optimal control and operations research applied to marketing, supply chains and environmental management, areas in which he has published more than 140 papers and co-edited thirteen volumes. He coauthors the books Differential Games in Marketing and Games and Dynamic Games. He is editor-in-chief of Dynamic Games and Applications. He is a fellow of The Royal Society of Canada and was the president of the International Society of Dynamic Games (2002-2006).

Aart de Zeeuw
He studied mathematics at the University of Groningen and received his PhD in economics at Tilburg University. He has been professor in quantitative economics from 1989 until 1993 and since then professor of environmental economics at Tilburg University. From 2006 until 2009 he has been co-director of the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics in Stockholm, Sweden. He served as president of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists from 1998 until 2000, and as co-editor of the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management from 2004 until 2008. At Tilburg University he held a number of other positions such as dean of the Faculty of Economics from 1992 until 1994, director of graduate studies from 1998 until 2001, scientific director of CentER from 2005 until 2007, and scientific director of the Tilburg Sustainability Center from 2009 until 2013. He has been a member of the Netherlands Advisory Council for Research on Nature and Environment and an advisor to the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. He published in a wide range of scientific economic journals. His current research interests focus on international environmental agreements and the economics of dynamical ecological systems.
