The GDRR program is broad, and embraces game theory, adversarial risk analysis, and complex decision theory, often in the context of system reliability in a stochastic environment. Machine learning approaches will be a prominent part of the program. The workshop will begin with a series of overview lectures, and then segue into talks about recent research on these topics. On Thursday, the participants will break out into working groups, and develop plans for their semester of work on these topics. On Friday morning, the leaders of the working groups will share those plans with all of the workshop participants. The workshop ends at noon on Friday.
