Exciting news:
* This will be the 50th anniversary of the first WCCC -- Stockholm 1974.
* We have a major sponsor for the WCCC events.
* Sponsorship includes prize money for each of the three WCCC tournaments, as well as travel and hotel subsidies for program entries.
* This will be the last WCCC. After 50 years, it's time to declare success. The WCCC started out with ELO 1600 programs and today we have ELO 3600 programs. It's time for a celebration...
* The WCCC will include a special half-day event: Chess: History, Experiments, and Search Symposium (CHESS). We will invite to Spain as many of the early pioneers of computer chess, some of whom participated in Stockholm 1974! We will celebrate the past, present, and future of chess, computing, and AI.

I hope you can join us.
For the Symposium, it could be neat to have a display of old HW in chronological order: history on display. I know there a lot of dedicated chess computer collectors in the world and Europe. Thorsten Czub has a very nice collection.

I have no doubt that you are right about that. No matter what the law is, people can always break it. The question is, could you sue the Stockfish representative that said "no" for breach of contract?
That would be an interesting.

Not now that he is dead, no. But I am sure Steve Jobs was a civilized man, so your comparison is rather misplaced.

Andrea, sono talmente disgustato dai frequentatori dei vari forum scacchistici, egocentrici, permalosi, saccenti e spesso molto offensivi, che personalmente ho smesso di interessarmi ai motori e ho cambiato hobby.

Un abbraccio, Alex
