Combinatorial Game Theory Colloquium V (Lisbon, January 31- February 02, 2025)

Combinatorial Game Theory (CGT) is a branch of mathematics that focuses on the study of sequential games with perfect information. These games encompass well-known rulesets such as Amazons, Clobber, Domineering, Hackenbush, Konane, Nim, Octal Games, Wythoff’s Nim. Following John Conway's seminal work, On Numbers and Games (1976), Elwyn Berlekamp, John Conway, and Richard Guy authored  “the book” Winning Ways (1982) , which presents a unified mathematical theory to analyze a wide range of combinatorial rulesets. Additionally, Lessons in Play (2007), by Michael Albert, David Wolfe, and Richard Nowakowski, and Combinatorial Game Theory (2013), by Aaron Siegel are essential readings on the subject.

Combinatorial Game Theory Colloquia are held every two years, in Portugal. Associação Ludus will organize in Lisbon, Portugal, the fifth edition of the CGTC, January 31 - February 02, 2025, with support of Centro de Matemática Aplicada à Previsão e Decisão Económica, Centro de Matemática e Aplicações (NovaMath, FCT NOVA), and Sociedade Portuguesa de Matemática. 

The meeting will take place at  Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Campus de Caparica, 2829-516 Caparica, Portugal.
