Tournament : Open IGC 2020 (cancelled)

Dear players,

As a measure taken against the spread of the coronavirus in Switzerland, EPFL has decided yeasterday afternoon to prohibit all events by students until further notice. We therefore see ourselves in the obligation of cancelling the 2020 edition of the Open IGC.

This decision saddens us but is probably for the best, and we hope to see you soon (and in good health !) over a goban.

The Ishi Go Club comitee.


Welcome to the information website of the Open IGC 2020! It will take place at the Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland.

The Ishi Go Club (organizer) is looking forward to see you all for the ninth edition.

It will be held on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March 2020 in Satellite, the student bar of EPFL.

You will be able to play also at Satellite in-between your games, where you can also order sandwiches and pizzas. The staff of Satellite is composed of student volunteers, so do not forget to thank them !

You can also eat the Gina restaurant or at HolyCow, both next to the metro station.

It will be all in good fun so do not hesitate to come whether you are a beginner or an experienced player!

Note that we dispose of rudimentary beds at the EPFL bunker, so you will be able to sleep on site if necessary. (See Accommodation)
