London Chess Conference 2018

Chessdom - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 19:32

The 6th London Chess Conference will take place on the week-end of the 8th and 9th December at the Irish Cultural Centre, Black’s Road, Hammersmith, London W6 9DT.

The leading conference on chess and education is jointly sponsored by Chess in Schools and Communities, the European Chess Union, and Erasmus Plus. Attendees will be able to spectate at the nearby 10th London Chess Classic and to participate in its FIDE rated Open (which will overlap only with the final conference session).

The theme this year is the future of chess in education. The question arises because there are many developments in the world of chess and also many challenges facing our education systems.

In the UK, the head of the schools inspection body, OFSTED, recently announced that they would switch their attention from looking at how children perform in exams to looking at how they learn in the classroom. The new idea, “quality of education”, is a reversion to a time before league tables forced schools to narrow the range of education. The likely consequence of the revived approach is that schools should make time for arts, music, sports and, we may hope, activities such as chess.

A strong argument for chess in schools is that it prepares children for the digital future. Chess is about the manipulation of abstract ideas – the raw material of the digital age. Citizens need to be able to navigate a range of logic-rich scenarios. For example, using a mobile phone or an iPad involves appreciating that there is a logical sequence to performing any task.

The chess playing child goes deep into the logical relationship between the elements. At its essence, chess becomes a series of if-then conditions. If you move your bishop, then I will checkmate you. Once you begin to think in this structured way, you can overcome a wider range of problems that one meets in everyday life. Conference speakers will explain how schools will be using chess to develop not only intellectual but also social skills which are vital for future citizens.

CHAMPS multiplier event

The conference will also host a multiplier event for the Erasmus Plus CHAMPS project on Chess and Mathematics in Primary Schools which takes place as a conference stream on Saturday 8th December. Attendance at the CHAMPS sessions is free but is subject to registration (below). The CHAMPS project explores the connections between chess and mathematics and adapts a number of these into instructive problems suitable for solving by young people.

Programme

The Programme for the Conference is being developed. There is still an opportunity to submit suggestions for contributions to the conference.

Venue
Irish Cultural Centre
Blacks Road
Hammersmith
London
W6 9DT

The conference has changed to a new venue in Hammersmith which is more convenient for travel connections and Heathrow airport. It coincides with the first weekend of the London Chess Festival when the world’s top players descend on London to battle for supremacy. The FIDE Open tournament starts at 2.30pm on Sunday 9th December at Olympia. Registered Conference participants will be entitled to free entry to watch the FIDE Open.

Sponsors

The event is sponsored by Chess in Schools and Communities (CSC), the European Chess Union (ECU) and Erasmus Plus.

“Η τυχαία συνάντηση του Άντι Γουόρχολ με τον Μαρσέλ Ντισάν”.  Ο Φίλιπ Κορ (1951-1989) συνέθεσε το έργο. Στην σημειολογική εικονογραφία για τα πρόσωπα που περιλαμβάνει ανάμεσα στα άλλα την Μέρλιν Μονρό, μια ραπτομηχανή, μια ομπρέλα δεν θα μπορούσε να λείπει η περίφημη κονσέρβα με την τοματόσουπα.

`

Πολύ αμερικανικά. Ο Άντι Γουόρχολ (1928-1987) ζωγραφίζει -ή, καλύτερα, αναπαράγει- τα πράγματα που αγαπάει και τα πράγματα που αγαπάει αποτελούν μέρος της κουλτούρας του: οι ήρωες των κινουμένων σχεδίων, οι αμερικανικοί μύθοι, το χαρτονόμισμα του ενός δολαρίου, οι κονσέρβες σούπας, όλα πράγματα «πολύ αμερικανικά», για να χρησιμοποιήσουμε μια φράση που επαναλάμβανε συχνά ο ίδιος 1. Το ίδρυμα Άντι Γούορχολ κατασκεύασε πρόσφατα μια σκακιέρα, όπου τα σκακιστικά κομμάτια είναι κονσέρβες. Πρόκειται για ευθεία προβολή στις «κονσέρβες σούπας Campbell», από τα διάσημα του ύστερου Γουόρχολ.


The Chess Player, εδώ με το χέρι του ίδιου του νεαρού Άντι Γουόρχολ, το 1954. Τα χρώματα πιθανότατα έχουν τοποθετηθεί από φίλο του Γουόρχολ, στα εγκαίνια του Serendipity 3 cafe εκείνη τη χρονιά.

FIDE - Tue, 10/16/2018 - 11:27



The 1st FIDE World Team Chess Championship for Disabled 2018 started on 15 October in Wyndham Garden Hotel Dresden, Germany. The event is organized by ZMDI Schachfestival Dresden e. V. under the auspices of FIDE. Dr. Jordan, the Chairman of the Organizing Committee and his team have successfully organized the World Chess Olympiad back in 2008 in Dresden as well as other chess competition of senior and disabled formats in Germany.



The FIDE Observer of the tournament is Thomas Luther.



Here is what he replied to the question “Why do we need competitions for people with disabilities” at the 2nd FIDE World Junior Championship for the Disabled: “Special care for all chess players is a motto of the events for disabled players. They feel supported and understood. Here we have nice playing conditions that help players deal with the complexities of the competition.”

The first edition of the team championship gathered 9 teams from 4 participating federations. Germany is presented with three teams: DGSV 1920 e.V with blind and deaf chess players, Deutschland Jugend and Niedersachsen team with different kinds of disability. Other teams are from Russia (IPCA, Russia Deaf, Russia Women Deaf and Russian Youth Team), Hungarian mixed team with deaf and blind chess players and Polish deaf participants. This year’s competition is marked with two junior teams from Germany and Russia.



The Captains’ meeting was opened by the Chairman of the Organizing Committee Dr. Dirk Jordan who greeted representatives of the teams and introduced the team: Chief Arbiter, Social program coordinator, FIDE Observer and other arbiters.



Chief Arbiter Egmont Poenisch briefed captains on the regulations of the competition.



The team compositions were confirmed and the drawing of lots was conducted.



On the same day the Opening Ceremony took place. It was started by Dr. Dirk Jordan who later on gave the floor to Thomas Luther who warmly greeted the participants and wished them luck.



The IPCA President Svetlana Gerasimova thanked the organizers for the unique opportunity for all disabled chess players to compete in the World Team competition for the world chess title.



The magic show by famous magician Andreas Roethig was to continue the Opening Ceremony. It made the start of the event special.



The first round started right after the Opening ceremony. The former World Chess Champion for the Disabled IM Andrey Obodchuk of Russia, the current World Junior Chess Champion for the Disabled FM Ilia Lipilin of Russia, the President of IPCA Svetlana Gerasimova and other strong chess players are going to make the first moves.



We will keep you posted!

Κατά τη διάρκεια του ταξιδιού ο Ποιητής και αφηγητής της ιστορίας, συναντά μια παιδική του φίλη και τον βαθύπλουτο πατέρα της. Οι νέοι ερωτεύονται αλλά ο πατέρας έχει άλλα σχέδια για την κόρη του. Οι δύο ερωτευμένοι καταφέρνουν να ξεπεράσουν όλες τις αποστάσεις που τους χωρίζουν, την ηλικιακή, τη γεωγραφική, αλλά όχι την κοινωνική, όπως την ορίζει το χρήμα. Η ιστορία εκτυλίσσεται σαν αεράκι πάνω στο κατάστρωμα του πλοίου.

Norway Chess eliminates clock increment for 2019 edition

Chessdom - Thu, 10/11/2018 - 04:53

The Altibox Norway Chess Tournament has introduced some major changes in its competition system for the 2019 edition. Most notably, the drawn games will continue with the Armageddon to determine the winner, while the time control will be G120 without increments.

The organizers are excited about the new format, while the fans’ reaction is mixed.

Press release:

Norway Chess has since its inception in 2013 aimed to increase the commercial aspects of chess in order to bring chess to new fans around the world.

Norway Chess is the first chess tournament screened on national live television in Norway. Norway Chess introduced innovative aspects to chess tournaments such as the confessional booth, unique playing venues, and commercial sponsorships.

New format

We are now introducing a new, exciting playing format. The overall goal is to create a tournament with fewer draws per game, create more excitement for spectators and put more pressure on the players.

How it works

Each player will have 2 hours on the clock per game, without any increments.

2 points will be given for victory, ½ point for draw and 0 points for loss.

The players that have games that end with a draw will continue in an Armageddon play-off only a few minutes after their game. The player with the white pieces will continue with white in the Armageddon game. With this, there will be a winner in each game due to the fact that black pieces will win if the game ends in a draw. The winner in the Armageddon play-off gets 1 point.

The Armageddon games will not add to the rating of the players, only contributing to the results list in the tournament, which is FIDE rated.

Players will get following points per round:

Victory main game: 2 points
Loss main game: 0 points
Draw main game & loss Armageddon: 0,5 point
Draw main game & victory Armageddon: 1,5 points

The 7th edition of Altibox Norway Chess will take place June 3-15, 2019.
