Update on Upcoming CGT Events

Integers 2013 has been confirmed and there is a possible conference next year in China!  I figured it was best to provide an update on all the upcoming CGT academic events:

Games at Dal(housie): June 4-7, 2013.  Talks will be held on June 5 (tentative) as part of the Canadian Mathematical Society meeting in Halifax, NS.

Integers 2013: The Erdos Centennial Conference in Combinatorial Number Theory: October 24-27, 2013.  This will be held at the University of West Georgia in Carrolton, GA.  The website for this is not yet up, but will hopefully be up soon.

Fraser Stewart is already planning ahead for a conference in China next year.  He wrote to me recently:

My name is Fraser Stewart, and I work for Xi'An Jiaotong University in China.  For those of you who don't know, Xi'An is a very historic and famous city in China, it is most famous for being home to the terracotta warriors.  I'm currently trying to arrange a conference/workshop here on combinatorial game theory, around this time next year.

The university has already said they are happy for me to do this, but I need to get an idea of how many people I should expect to attend.  I also want to publish a Games of No Chance style journal from the conference as well.

I am applying for some money so that I can have some invited speakers, and there will be a chance to do a little sightseeing while you're here.  Unfortunately though, due to the way funds are distributed in China, there won't be any money for air fares (even for invited speakers), so if you do want to come you'll need to arrange your own plane ticket.

If you are interested in coming, then please get back to me.  If you give me a rough time when you'll be available, then that will help me to set a precise date for it.  I do understand this won't be for around a year, so if you don't know yet then that's fine.

You can get back to him by emailing: fraseridstewart [at] gmail [dot] com.  He's hoping to hear back from lots of interested people!

I'm still trying to figure out which of these conferences I'll be able to attend.  Being at a small liberal-arts school doesn't give me much in the way of travel funds, but I'm at least hoping to be at Integers.  If you know that you'll be attending some of these, I'd love to hear about it in the comments!

  1. Update! Fraser will be hosting a workshop THIS YEAR in China instead of next year. I posted his most recent message here: http://combinatorialgametheory.blogspot.com/2013/04/an-update-on-summer-workshop-in-china.html
