Details will be released closer to the release date.
Contestants will be writing an artificial intelligence to play Risk. The
prize will be awarded to the intelligence which wins the most
head-to-head matches against competing entries. We're providing easy
APIs for several languages, as well as full documentation of the game
protocol so contestants can write wrappers for any additional language
they wish to work in.
We officially support entries in Scheme, Perl, Java, C, and C++. If you
would like help developing an API for some other language contact us
through the systems committee mailing list (we will require that your API
is made available to all entrants).
