Default Deadline early registration WCCC: May 15

12th World Computer Chess Championship
Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel
July 4th-12th 2004

The ICGA is delighted to announce that today we have signed a contract with
Bar-Ilan University, Israel, for them to host the 2004 World Computer Chess
Championship.

The planning of this event has been in progress for some time and every
effort
is being made to ensure that the participants will enjoy their visit to
Israel.
The ICGA will provide $300 in financial assistance to 12 amateur Chess
programmers to assist them with the cost of their air tickets.

An excursion to Jerusalem will be arranged by the ICGA during the event.
There
will also be ample opportunity for participants to enjoy themselves during
the
evenings as the games will start earlier than at previous events.

In parallel with the World Computer Chess Championship the ICGA will be
organising the 9th Computer Olympiad and the 4th International Conference,
CG
2004 on Computers and Games, both of which will also take place at Bar-Ilan
University.

The event will be supported, amongst others, by the City of Ramat-Gan, Intel
Israel, Israel's Ministry of Tourism and Mercury Interactive.

The format for the 12th World Computer Chess Championship WCCC2004 will be:
11-round Swiss. The Tournament Director of the WCCC will be Professor Jaap
van
den Herik from the Computer Science Department of the Universiteit
Maastricht.
The deadline for early registration of the WCCC2004 is May 15, 2004.

The entry fee for the chess tournament is as follows:

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

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

"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.

Any entry received after 15 May 2004 will be subject to a penalty fee,
