Park Lane Hotel [1]

The First Computer Olympiad was held from August 9 to 15, 1989, in the Ballroom of the Park Lane Hotel, London, United Kingdom, where already the first part of the World Chess Championship 1986 between Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov took place [2] . Claude Shannon served in the award ceremony, handing the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals to the deserving [3]. The First Computer Olympiad was associated by the Heuristic Programming in Artificial Intelligence workshop, with proceedings edited by David Levy and Don Beal, published by Ellis Horwood [4].
