Subject: 1st International CSVN Tournament 18-20 May 2001

After some years without a Dutch computer-chess tournament in spring it is time
for something new: a tournament more accessible to foreigners than the Open
Dutch Championship Computer-Chess thanks to the fact it is played in a
consecutive number of days. At the same time we accomodate potential
participants who cannot take much leave from work. With this tournament you keep
in contact with other chess programmers and keep momentum in the development of
your program. The playing tempo will also be reasonably swift, 90 minutes per
player for the whole game. So it can become a big spectacle. The schedule of
this 9 round Swiss tournament is Friday 12:30-22:30, Saturday 09:30-21:30
including a break for the anual CSVN member's meeting and Sunday 9:30-19:30,
after which the prizes are distributed.

Here is information for potential participants. First some rules:
	Entry is open for all nationalities. CSVN membership is not required for this
	The programmer, being someone who programmed at least a significant part of
the program must register as a participant, possibly together with other team
members, who have also contributed.
	The source code of the program may not contain pieces of published programs,
unless the authors are in the team.
	The participant arranges a computer by himself, so no equipment or network
connections are made available by the organisation.

In addition to the rules we request the programmers to be present themselves to
operate their program and explain its background. Please register by sending
e-mail or ordinary mail to Cock de Gorter, Valkenboskade 607, 2563 JE 's
Gravenhage, He is interested in the following information:
	Name of the programma and names, roles and presence of the teammembers.
	Names of all authors of the source code of the program
	Correspondence and e-mail address
	Indication of playing strength (for new programs, recent games are requested)
	Type of computer and number of processors on which the program is running
	Used algorithms, operating system, programming language and compiler
	Size of the program (lines of code) and the opening book (positions)
We look  forward to your entry.
