The ICGA is pleased to announce that the 2018 Computer Olympiad (July 7th-13th) and the 10th International Conference on Computer and Games (CG 2018, July 9th-11th) will be held in Taiwan.

The Chess events, including the World Computer Chess Championship, World Chess Software Championship (uniform platform event) and the Speed Chess World Computer Championship, will take place in Europe, either in mid-July or in November. The dates depend on which of two locations is chosen, which we hope to know in the coming weeks.
