Opportunity Text: 

Elwyn Berlekamp (1937-2019) was a pioneering contributor to combinatorial game theory, greatly advancing the subject over the course of a more than five-decade career. Along with his coauthors, John Conway and Richard Guy, Berlekamp invented the modern form of the theory, with the publication of Winning Ways for Your Mathematical Plays in 1982. His later work substantially advanced our understanding of the mathematical structure of well-known games such as Go, Amazons, and Dots-and-Boxes. More information about his life can be found at www.msri.org/elwyn.

his workshop will be an informal two-day mini-conference honoring Berlekamp's work and the subject he helped create. The event will consist of talks, afternoon workshops, and a combinatorial games tournament.
