There are 2 annual AI Tournaments, the SSCAIT and AIIDE, in which up to 50 bots play against each other. These tournaments are also meeting grounds for programmers; the AIIDE hosts the BW AI Tournament as a part of its conferences, at which programmers/students exchange knowledge and present research papers linked to their bots. The SSCAIT takes place online.
