Ludo2020 Announced!

Even though we’ve not yet posted our customary retrospective on Ludo2019 (it’s coming!), we have some exciting news to share about Ludo2020.

We’re thrilled to announce that Ludo2020 will take place at the Valletta Campus of the University of Malta, April 24–25th 2020! We shall, of course, circulate a call for papers in due course but we were too excited to keep this information to ourselves and thought it would be helpful for those who want to plan ahead. More information will be shared in due course; in the meantime, look out also for a review of Ludo2019.
