The SSCAIT, or Student StarCraft AI Tournament has been held since 2011, when it was first organised by Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia. Together with AIIDE and CIG it is one of the three big AI tournaments for Brood War AI.
The SSCAIT was first organised in 2011, by the Comenius University, Bratislava, Slovakia. The 50 participating bots were divided into 10 groups of 5, from which the 8th finals were populated. In the finals, Roman Danielis won against Michal Piovarci.
In the following years, the number of participants stayed constant, making it the biggest Brood War AI tournament in the world.
Even though the tournament is currently hosted at two universities (Czech Technical University in Prague and Comenius University in Bratislava), it is open to the public. Any individuals or groups of people are elligible for participation, but special rules apply to students.
Bots play a large round-robin. After that the top 16 (top 8 in previous years) move on to the knock-out stage. Current format there is Best of 1 in the round of 16, then best of 3 to the semi-finals. And the final is played as a best of 5 match.
The tournament generally starts in December and runs well into the following year.
