For the 2017 World Computer Chess Championship we are changing the format, removing the entry fee, and offering an expenses budget to each of the contestants. Our aim for 2017 will be to attract the strongest participants. There will be only 4 contestants, each of whom will receive 1,000 Euro for their expenses from the ICGA.

Does this mean only 4 participants are accepted? or more can be accepted but they can only offer 1000 euros to each of 4 participants?

Regarding attracting the strongest participants, perhaps ICGA should just invite the Stockfish team.


I want people to know that although I posted the announcement at David Levy's request, I do not agree with:

a. limiting WCCC to just 4 entries (David does say WCSC is not limited)
b. excluding all but the top two programs from this year from entering WCCC next year.

Both seem unfair to me. Programs change a lot from year to year so who knows which ones will be strongest next year? Restricting them could mean we do not even have the two most qualified programs. to me "World" should mean everyone. I do know space limits will mean we cannot host a huge number, but things like estimated elo could be used to select the top X programs that will "fit" in a playing room.

I understand something needed to be done due to the lack of entries this year. And incentives like paying some of the travel expenses is good, if it is fairly awarded by need or maybe simply the first 4 entries. But how can the limited entries even be chosen if there is interest by more than 4 programmers? What if one of the top two does not want to play next year? These new conditions are too exclusionary, and I hope they are rethought.

I have heard some rumors that a couple of more programs are likely to enter, so we hopefully should have a reasonable number this year. But we have to plan for the future.
