I have been asked by Pawel Morawiecki, if there will be interesting
side events in the European Go Congress 2017.

> I plan to come for EGC for 5 days or so. But i don't know which 
> week should i choose. Are there any attractive side events ?
> I know that the movie "Surrounding game" is to be played 24th June. 

On Thursday, July 22, there will be a (large) Board Game evening.
For Wednesday, August 02, a new codecentric Challenge is intended:
strong human vs a go program running onsite on a mobile phone or smartphone.

> Something changed about AlphaGo?

Good question. We still hope that Deepmind understands what a great opportunity
a presentation in the EGC (the largest Go event in the world, in number of 
participants) would mean. But,. hope is last to die.


Would be grateful for your recommendation.
