Game theory formalizes information using partitions of the set of possible joint values of the problem's random variables. In contrast, information theory formalizes information using functions of the joint probability distribution governing those random variables. The goal of this workshop is to use these two formalizations of information as a starting point to achieve a deeper understanding of the role of information in strategic situations.
