The international symposium “Monte-Carlo Search is Everywhere” will give an outline on recent developments on the topic of Monte-Carlo search techniques for different classes of games (one-, two- or multi-player games, sequential or simultaneous, stochastic or deterministic, and imperfect information games). The symposium will be followed by the public defence of Pim Nijssen’s Ph.D. Thesis, entitled "Monte-Carlo Tree Search for Multi-Player Games".
