The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) hosted the first major chess tournament for computers, the 1st ACM United States Computer Chess Championship, in September 1970 in New York. The event was organized by Monroe Newborn, Professor of Computer Science at McGill University [3]. The ACM chess events, in 1975 renamed the ACM North American Computer Chess Championship, and in 1991 the ACM International Computer Chess Championship, were canceled in 1995 as Deep Blue was preparing for the first match against world chess champion Garry Kasparov.
