CGT Gatherings: May 2014, Oct. 2014, Jan. 2015

I want to make sure I advertise some games meetings that are happening in the next year.  I'm afraid I should have mentioned some sooner!

May 2014 in British Columbia:

I have confirmation that TRU will be happy to host the inaugural "TRUe Games Workshop".  It will be taking place here at Thompson Rivers University in beautiful Kamloops, BC from May 6th - 9th, 2014.

The Math/Stats Dept at Dalhousie will be hosting the AMS NorthEast Section meeting Oct 18 and 19. There will be a special session on Games on Graphs. This is vague enough to cover all versions of Pursuit-Evasion games, combinatorial and positional games provided they are on a graph. I'm the contact person. If you would like to speak please let me know and send me a title and abstract as soon as possible. There is a hard deadline of August 18 to get in your abstracts---no abstract, no talk.

We have a maximum of thirteen 30min slots but we don't have to use all of them

There is no funding available, I'll check with the Graphs and Games group as to whether the group will consider funding some expenses for students.
Jan. 2015 in Portugal:
Carlos Santos gave me the website for the Combinatorial Game Theory Colloquium, an event that will be held every three years!  Exciting!  I'm sure there will be more information about this as the event develops.
