The Twelfth Computer Olympiad took place from June 11 to 18, 2007, at Amsterdam Science Park, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in conjunction with the Computer Games Workshop 2007 and the 15th World Computer Chess Championship. The three main sponsors IBM, SARA Computing Networks (since 2013 SURFsara), and NCF (Foundation of National Computing Facilities) supported the ICGA events in the framework of their opening festivities of their new Huygens supercomputer, taken into operation on June 13, 2007 by the mayor of Amsterdam, Job Cohen [1]. Interestingly , the further developed Go Gold medal winner MoGo, dubbed MoGo Titan soon caused some furor using that supercomputer [2] [3] [4].
