The following competitions have already been confirmed, and will hosted be at FDG 2018:

The Two-player General Video Game AI Competiton
Organizers: Raluca D. Gaina, Diego Perez Liebana, Simon M. Lucas
Description: The GVG-AI Competition explores the problem of creating controllers for general video game playing. How would you create a single agent that is able to play any game it is given? Could you program an agent that is able to play a wide variety of games, without knowing which games are to be played? The Two-Player track brings the additional challenge of competing or cooperating with another intelligent agent. This track will count 50 two-player games for training, 10 for validation and 10 for test to compute the final rankings.
