Gomocup 2019 Announcement

Hello, all Gomocup fans!

Spring 2019 is coming, and we would like to inform you about some details. Gomocup 2019 will take place from May 3rd to May 5th, 2019. The deadline is on the 26th of April 2019 at 23:59 pm UTC.

The compatibility requirement of Gomocup 2019 will be the same as that of 2018. If you are new to Gomocup, we strongly recommend reading compatibility details.

Following the settings of Gomocup 2018, we will have tournaments for freestyle gomoku, standard gomoku, and renju in Gomocup 2019. One author is not allowed to submit more than one AI for one rule but is allowed to submit different AIs for different rules. Memory limit is determined to 350MB, and AI size limitation is 8MB. Time per move/per match will be 5s/120s for fast game, 300s/1000s for final leagues, and 30s/180s for the rest. For details, you can refer to detail information. Gomocup 2019 will run on CPUs that support up to at least the following instruction sets: SSE4.1, SSE4.2, and POPCNT. GPUs are not supported in Gomocup 2019, but we would consider introducing a new GPU AI tournament in the future, and you are welcome to release GPU versions along with CPU versions. 

Academic integrity is the foundation of a healthy intellectual community, and in recent years we unfortunately see incidents of copyright issues occurred in Gomocup, such as the disqualification of HGarden (link). As the Gomocup community is growing larger and larger, we require every participant to sign a copyright statement (link) from this year.

In this year, we recommend you to submit your AI via the Gomocup user site. If you encounter any problems or bugs while using the system, fell free to send a email to us: gomocup@gmail.com.

We are looking for sponsorship for Gomocup 2019, to support our web hosting fees and/or provide souvenirs for participants. If you are interested, please contact us: gomocup@gmail.com.

Gomocup 2018 Announcement

Published by Kai Sun at Feb 9, 2018

Hello, all Gomocup fans!

April 2018 is coming and we would like to inform you about some details. Gomocup 2018 will take place from April 27th to April 29th, 2018. The deadline is on the 20th of April 2018 at 23:59 pm UTC.

From this year, we no longer require AIs to be Win32 compatible, which means you can submit pure x64 programs only. The rest of the compatibility requirement of Gomocup 2018 will be the same as that of 2017. If you are new to Gomocup, we strongly recommend reading compatibility details.

In accordance with Gomocup 2017, we will have tournaments for freestyle gomoku, standard gomoku, and renju in Gomocup 2018. One author is allowed to submit different AIs for different rules, though one author is not allowed to submit more than one AI for one rule. Memory limit is determined to 350MB, time per move/per match will be 5s/120s for fast game, 300s/1000s for final leagues, and 30s/180s for the rest.

In the past year, we have received requests to increase the limitation on AI size to allow AIs with large models to participate, so we decide to change the limitation on AI size from 4 MB to 8 MB. For details, you can refer to detail information.

We are looking for sponsorship for Gomocup 2018, to support our web hosting fees and/or provide souvenirs for participants. If you are interested, please contact us: gomocup@gmail.com .
