World Computer Chess Championships 2018

Post by Rémi Coulom »

The International Computer Games Association (ICGA) is very pleased to announce that the 2018 World Computer Chess Championship, as well as the 2018 World Chess Software Championship and the 2018 World Computer Speed Chess Championship, will all take place in Stockholm, alongside the conferences of IJCAI (International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence) and ECAI (European Conference on Artificial Intelligence).

Some ICGA members and chess participants might recall that the very first World Computer Chess Championship was held in Stockholm in 1974.

The dates are July 13th-19th inclusive (7 days).

Participating program teams will receive a certain amount of financial support towards their travel and accommodation costs, and will be able to take advantage of discounted hotel rates arranged by the IJCAI/ECAI organizers. More details will be provided in the near future, including details of how to register for the championships.

Kind Regards,

David Levy
[President - ICGA]
