We usually have it on ICC. We have tried an alternate venue (HGM's server) but there were some performance issues and despite the extra effort to make it good for spectators very few showed up.

Charles
what about FICS?

or if ICC is the only viable server, could the games be relayed live on the ACCA web page with some free chat for the users to comment?

The voting has finished and the weekend will be that of Dec 7/8.

The web pages will be up soon. You should get your ICC temp account soon to test your connections....

Remember: the program that finishes last is the one that doesn't enter.

Best regards,

Charles

New entry
Eichhoernchen by Wieland Belka from Germany.

Remember: he who finishes last is he who doesn't enter.

This tournament is not a consumer/commercial tournament that forces identical hardware. It is a science effort to push the limits of any part of computer chess programming. There are entries in this that can not be tested by CCRL, CEGT, TCEC or the rest.
