Abstract

The Fifteenth International Conference on Advances in Computer Games (ACG 2017) was held at Leiden University, Leiden, The Netherlands. The three-day conference took place on July 3rd–5th in conjunction with the 20th Computer Olympiad and the 23rd World Computer Chess Championship. The Advances in Computer Games conference series is a major international forum for researchers and developers interested in all aspects of artificial intelligence and computer game playing. Earlier conferences took place in London (1975), Edinburgh (1978), London (1981, 1984), Noordwijkerhout (1987), London (1990), Maastricht (1993, 1996), Paderborn (1999), Graz (2003), Taipei (2005), Pamplona (2009), Tilburg (2011) and Leiden (2015).Day 1 reported by Mark WinandsIn the first talk, Richard Lorentz presented his paper Machine Learning in the Game of Breakthrough.
