from Ard's Chesspage [6]:

Also, when I was a student, I started to develop my own chess program which competed many times in the Dutch National Championship organised by the CSVN. The best result my program obtained was a shared second place in 1983. It also competed twice (Cologne 1986 and Edmonton 1989) in the World Championship organised by the ICCA (now ICGA).
