To engine programmers: next TCEC Season starting in ~ 1month

Post by Martin Thoresen » Fri Jan 10, 2014 11:17 am

Hi all,

This is a heads up for all engine programmers. I will do my usual email exchange soon with the "regulars", but if you want to participate in the next TCEC Season please send me an email to webmaster at tcec-chess dot net

Minimum requirements for the engine:
SMP
UCI or WB


The TCEC computer is a 16-core dual Xeon which will now allow up to 16 GB hash per engine. All tablebase flavors are available (up to 5 men).

If you need more details please don't hesitate to ask.

People that are just copying IPP or SF code and putting their name on it do not need to bother contacting me.

Thanks!

Yes, apparently there are some issues right now with the mailserver.

Please just send me a PM instead. :)

Best,
Martin

The tcec-chess.net domain is on hold right now (it will be moved to Chessdom permanently) but I am unsure if this affects the email or not.

So please PM me instead of sending an email.

Thanks to everyone that has contacted me so far, I think the next Season will be a great event.

Best,
Martin

The email should be fully functional again, so please use it instead of PM here in the forum. Thanks.

Great to hear this, Martin! Do you know if there will be an update Houdini for this season?
