Submissions are now open!

This year the Geometry Friends Competition will be held at the IEEE Conference on Games (CoG 2022) and the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI-ECAI 2022). Explore this website to know more about the competition! You can also check the submission site for details on the submission process, as well as follow the current scoreboard. You can find there baseline agents, as examples, for all tracks.

You can compete in the following tracks in the IJCAI-ECAI 2022 competition: Rectangle Track GF-IJCAI-ECAI 2022, Circle Track GF-IJCAI-ECAI 2022, and Cooperation Track GF-IJCAI-ECAI 2022. For the CoG 2022 competition, you can participate in these tracks: GF-CoG 2022 – Rectangle Track, GF-CoG 2022 – Circle Track and GF-CoG 2022 – Cooperation Track. The IJCAI-ECAI 2022 competition ends on July 22, 2022, and the CoG 2022 competition ends on August 19, 2022. We invite you to submit your agents to both competitions. We will transfer the IJCAI submissions to the CoG competition once the IJCAI tracks close. Please contact us if you do not want us to do so.

What is Geometry Friends?

Geometry Friends is a two player cooperative puzzle platformer computer game developed at GAIPS INESC-ID.

What is the competition?

The competition consists of creating artificial players for the cooperative platform puzzle game Geometry Friends.

  1. The Cooperation Track focuses on developing two AI players, capable of cooperating with each other in order to solve levels designed for player cooperation.
  2. The Single AI Track consists of two sub-tracks: the Circle Track and the Rectangle Track. Each sub-track will focus exclusively on the development of one of the two characters of the game. These tracks are targeted at participants that want to tackle the problems of the domain (physics-based platform puzzle), without the complexity of cooperation. Typically, the Rectangle Track presents more challenges in puzzle solving and the Circle Track presents more challenges in the actuation in the environment.
