The Tournament Offices:
- The Tournament Offices organize all the IECG Tournaments. The "average" delay before the start of a Class Tournament (the most requested event) is about two weeks. Please be patient because we need to assure a good mix of countries and strength of participants (IECG is an international organization and so you should expect to play against people from all over the world). To request entry in a new match or tournament please use our Tournament Entry Form.
The Tournament Secretaries.
- The Tournament Secretaries run the individual tournaments. All requests, information about changes (e.g. email address) and game results should be sent to the responsible TS. The address of your TS is indicated in the starting list and in every tournament report. If you have lost this data please contact the appropriate TD as listed above.
For our TSs (important!): please read the CLChess user's guide (zipped) and the FAQ for extremely valuable information!
The Registration and Tutorial Office Secretary -
Albrecht is running our Registration and Tutorial Office. If you would like to join IECG please use our Registration Form. If your Web browser should not support forms please contact Albrecht directly via e-mail. In addition, Albrecht manages the Tutorial team:
- Our tutors are the pillars of the Tutorial Office. Their task is to lead the new players through the first moves of a tutorial game, offering help as to timekeeping, notation, tournament rules, etc. To register please proceed to our Registration Form!
The Archives Team - Director: Pascal Paris. The other members of the archives team are: Jean-Luc Duriez, Leif Edvin Wærstad and Laurent Tinture. Pascal manages the Archive webpages that will eventually contain all the IECG games in a highly organized form. Please see the document on PGN standards in order to make our job easier, thanks!
The Adjudicator -
Mats has the important task of adjudicating games: this may be necessary for various reasons, for instance if a player withdraws and his opponents wants to get the games with him rated, or when the time allowed for certain tournaments has expired and the remaining open games are called in for adjudication
The Mailing List Manager -
In order to function smoothly and to ensure direct communication to its members IECG needs an intricate web of mailing lists. Most of them are for internal use (staff, commissions, etc.) and one big (one-sided) mailing list is kept for general communications to all IECG members.
- Hans Schoenbuchner is the creator of CLChess TM®, the essential tournament manager used by our Tournament Secretaries. Now the maintenance of the program is done by
