# Mike Clarke

**Michael R.B. (Mike) Clarke** († 1994),

was a British statistician and computer scientist at University of London Institute of Computer Science (ICS), since 1974, head of CS and Statistics at Queen Mary, University of London ^{[1]}. He researched and published on computer chess, organized the Advances in Computer Chess 3 conference, 1981 in London, and was editor of the proceedings of Advances in Computer Chess 1 ^{[2]}, Advances in Computer Chess 2 and Advances in Computer Chess 3 ^{[3]}. He was chess player ^{[4]} and chess composer. Michael Clarke deceased in early 1994 of stomach cancer ^{[5]}.
