The time settings are 30 minutes main time plus Canadian 2 minutes per 10 moves (30m + 2min / 10 moves). The rounds are spaced 90 min apart, 3 rounds on the first day, remaining rounds on the second day.

>>> There are details at https://www.gokgs.com/tournInfo.jsp?id=1070 (Asia/Europe) and https://www.gokgs.com/tournInfo.jsp?id=1071 (Americas).  Bots may enter both divisions. There are small prizes, which may be won by bots.

>>> The organisers expect entrants with a wide range of strengths, and I hope that these will include bots with a range of strengths. As it's an Elimination tournament, weaker players are likely to be eliminated on the Saturday. 
>>>
>>> Entrants are invited to register themselves for this tournament, using the "Tournament Registration" link at the top right of the pages cited above. When registering a bot, please also email me, so that I can check that all bots are being operated by, or with the approval of, their creators, and we do not have multiple instances of identical bots.
