Combinatorial Game Theory (CGT) is a branch of mathematics that studies sequential games with perfect information. Combinatorial games include well-known rulesets like Amazons, Clobber, Domineering, Hackenbush, Konane, Nim, Octal Games, Wythoff’s Nim. After the John Conway's book On Numbers and Games (1976), Elwyn Berlekamp, John Conway and Richard Guy published “the” Winning Ways (1982). In that book we can see a unified mathematical theory able to analyze a large class of rulesets. The modern books Lessons in Play (2007), by Michael Albert, David Wolfe, and Richard Nowakowski, and Combinatorial Game Theory (2013), by Aaron Siegel, are also mandatory reading.
Combinatorial Game Theory Colloquium is held every two years, in Portugal. Associação Ludus will organize in Lisbon the second edition of the CGTC, 25-27 January, 2017, with support of Centro de Análise Funcional, Estruturas Lineares e Aplicações, Centro de Matemática Aplicada à Previsão e Decisão Económica, Centro Interuniversitário de História das Ciências e da Tecnologia, and Laboratório de Modelação e Agentes. The Colloquium will be hosted by the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon (for a map of its location press ).
