  We are organizing a conference on Go and other board games as part
of the European Go Congress in Liberec next summer.

  We will appreciate your submissions, but also dissemination to other
venues where this might find interested researchers.

  (We also hope to get things like live video stream, travel stipends
for independent researchers, etc. arranged, but we have nothing definite
to say at this point.)

The Second International Go Game Science Conference (IGGSC 2015) will
present results in various fields related to board games, with the main
focus being on the game of Go (Baduk, Weiqi).  The conference hopes to
bring together researchers, scientists and practitioners from diverse
fields spanning from Artificial Intelligence and Mathematics, through
History, to Pedagogy and Psychology of board games.  Authors are
encouraged to contribute to the conference by submitting scientific
papers on their research results, projects and various studies.


Potential topics for submissions include, but are not limited to:

  * Computer Go and AI in Games; CGT – Combinatorial Game Theory
  * Science of Go Rules, Game Concepts and Situations
  * Psychology and Pedagogy of Go and other mind games
  * History and Culture of Go and other board games


Submitted papers are expected to contain at least 30% original work not
published at other venues yet. The papers will be subject to anonymous
peer review organized by the Program Committee (we aim to seek at least
two reviews for each paper).

Accepted papers will be published in hard copy conference proceedings
(with ISBN) and online on the conference website as open access; authors
are expected to sign a simple non-exclusive copyright licence permitting
typesetting editing and such publication.  Authors of Computer Science
papers are also encouraged to submit their preprints to arXiv/CoRR.  We
also aim to send the accepted papers for indexing by the Web of Science
if possible.


The Paper Submission Deadline is on May 18, 2015. Please submit papers
by sending them to email address iggsc2015 at v.or.cz (with subject
"IGGSC2015 Paper Submission").  We expect the papers in a PDF format,
written in English and including full bibliography.  We will make LaTeX
and Word templates available later; users of other software are expected
to match the visual style accordingly.
