Abstract

The ICGA is going through a renaissance. Last year was our 40th anniversary year and we held several meetings and discussions with a view to revamping the association in various ways. We examined our strengths and weaknesses, and we took advice on various fronts as to how we could offer more to our members and how we could better fulfil the original goals of those of us who founded the International Computer Chess Association, as it was known back in 1977.Much of the impetus for this self-reassessment came because our Editor-in-Chief, Jaap van den Herik, decided to retire from that role. For those of you who have not had the privilege of meeting Jaap in person and discovering the phenomenal amount of work that he does, and what he achieves, I should explain that Jaap’s contribution to the computer games field and to his role in the ICGA (and before it the ICCA), are almost beyond belief. He has boundless energy and enthusiasm for everything to which he turns his attention, and he more than anyone else has been responsible for growing our activities and related publications. In formally thanking Jaap for everything he has done for the ICGA
