Submission

Submissions are OPEN.

The competition will be run in two sites this year. At CIG’2017 and EPIA’2017. The submissions will be shared, but the set of private levels will be different for each site.

The deadline for the submissions is August 8.

A submission will consist of a .zip file containing all the source (e.g. .cs) files needed to compile the participant’s Rectangle or/and Circle agent(s) and a 2-4 pages report describing the agent(s) using the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. Once received, a confirmation email detailing the success of the submission will be sent back to the participant as soon as possible.

The framework allows participants to run their agents in game before submitting it for competition. It also allows the creation of new levels through the game editor so that participants can test and add new challenges for their agents. Multiple submissions are allowed, although only the last submitted entry will be used in the competition.

A submission should contain the following information:

    • Participant(s) Name(s);
    • Participant(s) Email(s);
    • Affiliation (optional);
    • Player/Team Name;
    • Submission Track;
    • A zip file attached with the source files and the description.

Please send your submissions to with the aforementioned details to: gfcompetition@gaips.inesc-id.pt

After publishing the results of the competition we will publish your report in the Publications section and the source code of your agents in the Downloads section for reference to new participants. If you do not want that please let us know.
