Default CFP: The 15th World Computer-Chess Championship and the 12th Computer Olympiad

From 2007-06-11 to 2007-06-18, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The 15th World Computer-Chess Championship and the 12th Computer Olympiad
will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in conjunction with the Computer
Games Workshop 2007 (CGW2007).

IBM, SARA (Academic Computer Centre Amsterdam) and NCF (Foundation of
National Computing Facilities) are enabling the organization of the Computer
Games Workshop 2007 (CGW2007) (15-17 June 2007), the 15th World
Computer-Chess Championship (WCCC) (11-18 June) and the 12th Computer
Olympiad (CO) (11-18 June) to be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Location: The Turing hall, Science Park Amsterdam, Kruislaan 419, 1098 VA
Amsterdam.

Below we mention 28 different games for which a program can be submitted to
the Olympiad.

Abalone
Amazons
Arimaa
Backgammon
Bao
Bridge
Chinese Chess
8x8 Checkers
Clobber
Computational Pool
Connect6
Diplomacy
Dominoes
Dots and Boxes
10x10 Draughts
Gipf
Go
9x9 Go
Hex
Kriegspiel
Lines of Action
6x7 OCTI
9x9 OCTI
Othello
Poker
Renju
Scrabble
Shogi

The game of Renju, claimed to be solved, is still welcome since we have not
seen a fully-operational program on internet that plays perfectly. Moreover,
we are willing to host more games, such as Ataxx, Dvonn, Mediocrity, Onyx,
Tamsk, TwixT and Zrtz but we do not know of the existence of adequately
playing programs. We are awaiting suggestions and proposals of programmers
before we include them in the official list given above.

For each game a tournament will take place provided that at least two
programs enter the tournament for that particular game. Gold, Silver and
Bronze medals will be awarded to the leading programs in each tournament.

The Tournament Director of the WCCC and Computer Olympiad will be: H.J. van
den Herik.

The rules of the WCCC and Computer Olympiad will be soon published.

The entry fees for the WCCC are as follows:

Amateur: ? 25
Semi-professional: ? 250
Professional: ? 500

The entry fees for the other tournaments are as follows:

Amateur: ? 25
Semi-professional: ? 100
Professional: ? 250

A participant is expected to be ICGA member (? 40).

Deadline early registration: May 21, 2007. Registration after May 21, 2007
will double the entry fee.

"Amateur": programmers who have no commercial interest in their program, and
are not professional game programmers. Applications for amateur
classification must supply information to justify their claim.

"Semi-professional": Any program submitted by an employee or associate from
a games-programming company. The program's name must not be derived from or
similar to a commercial product.

"Professional": A program whose name is the same as or derived from a
commercial product.

The 15th World Computer-Chess Championship (WCCC) will be a Swiss-system
event with 11 rounds in which the rate of play will be 60 moves in 2 hours
followed by the rest of the game in 30 minutes.

How do they change the time to add the extra 30 min once the game has
already started ? Or do they just put two and half hours in and let
them play ?
On my Ivan if you have X number of moves and you made that many in a
certain time limit then the clock automatically starts over ....

Any computer that is playing will deal with this kind of time control
automatically. Game in 2.5 hours is not the same as X moves in two
hours and then an extra half hour for the rest of the game!

Your right , i asked my friend who has Fritz 9 and he explained it to
me..

It bugs him when his Fritz 9 loses .ha ha
It bugs me when my Ivan loses too but i expect it to lose because it is
around I700 ELO ..But hey i still like playing ivan vs other computers
anyway...
