This event is a GAMENET workshop, held on March 14-15, 2019, in Mons, Belgium.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from two related fields in dynamic games: graph games and stochastic games. Despite clear differences in the emphasis, these two fields share a number of research goals, study related models, and use similar proof techniques. There is a scope for an interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers in different fields including computer science, economics, mathematics, and logic. The workshop is called for to serve as a forum for such collaboration.

The workshop has a wide scope, and covers amongst others the following areas:

- theoretical advances in graph and stochastic games;
- algorithms and computational complexity in these games;
- applications in computer science, economics, mathematics, biology, and physics.
