To know what participants liked (and didn’t like) about this year’s European Go Congress, we conducted a little survey, on which around 90 people participated.

We now know that the congress was really well received! Nearly half (43%) of the participants who had already taken part in other European Go Congress thought that this year's was the best! Overall grade for this: 1.5 (1=very good, 2=good, 3=not so good, 4=bad).  Read more...

This year's general meeting didn't see any contested votes, apart from the one for the selection of the host of the youth championship in 2019. Moscow would get it by a small margin over the Croatian proposal. The board members are elected only every three years, so the next election will be in 2018. Also the selection of the congress didn't take place because the members accepted the proposal of the german federation to select the congress only two years in advance.  Read more...
