Call for participation: PTSP League at CIG 2013, Niagara Falls, Canada
- Dear all,We are happy to announce that the 2013 (single-objective) PTSP League (http://www.ptsp-game.net/) is now open and ready to accept submissions. This competition is organised by Diego Perez and Simon Lucas, from the University of Essex, UK.This year, the competition is held in the Conference on Computational Intelligence in Games (CIG-2013), that will be celebrated this August in Niagara Falls, Canada. Remember that as competitors you have the opportunity to submit a paper to the conference, describing your submission.The PTSP League features the traditional (as in 2012) single-objective game: the player drives a ship in a map full of obstacles with the aim set in visiting several waypoints scattered around the maze. The objective is to collect as many waypoints as possible in the minimum time.Interestingly, the maps for these league have been automatically generated by an evolutionary process (using the evolutionary algorithm CMA-ES), in order to provide challenging levels. The set of maps will not be changed, and it will be used to compute the final rankings.Some useful links:- Software (starter kit: documentation, framework, sample controllers and maps).I hope you enjoy this competition! Should you have any problem with the code, rules or webpage, please do not hesitate to write in our google group or email me directly.Best of luck!Diego.
