Call for Papers

The International Journal of Game Theory (IJGT) invites submissions of significant papers in Combinatorial Game Theory. Combinatorial games are traditionally two-player perfect-information games with compact rules such as Nim or Chess, with more general games now being studied. Their theory was pioneered by Elwyn R. Berlekamp, John H. Conway and Richard K. Guy in Winning Ways (1982), republished in 2009 by A. K. Peters.

All articles will be refereed to the high standards of IJGT. Accepted papers are published online first in a Collection of papers that groups them in a single place. At the appropriate time, they will be published in print in a special issue of the journal. The first special issue on Combinatorial Games appeared as issue 2 in volume 47 of IJGT in 2018.

In Portugal, under the auspices of Associação Ludus, Carlos Pereira dos Santos has been organizing the Combinatorial Game Theory Colloquia taking place every two years, starting in January 2015, 2017, 2019, 2023. Authors of significant original results related to (or/and presented at) the conference are also encouraged to submit them by November 1, 2023 to the International Journal of Game Theory, in order to, if accepted, become part of the Collection. It is important to note that it is not necessary to have participated in the conference to do so.
