ESWC, which was launched in 2003, has established itself as the leading event in the world of video games. The only event of its kind, ESWC is an annual electronic-sports celebration that gathers the best teams in the world in order to compete on video games specially designed and adapted to player confrontation. The next event will take place at Disneyland® Paris in the summer of this year.
The 2010 programme will include five tournaments for console games and five tournaments for PC games: Counter Strike; Counter Strike Women; Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne; Trackmania ESWC; Quake; Defense of the Ancient; Need for Speed Shift; Street Fighter 4; FIFA 2010; and Guitar Hero. Players are competing for the title of World Champion in their discipline, as well as for prize money of US$213,500.
Established in over 50 countries, the ESWC competition is not open to all: players wishing to take part must attend one or more national events during the season in order to ultimately qualify for their national heats, which are held by local organisations. Participants who make the finals will qualify for the ESWC. Qualifying heats began in January 2010 and end in April, with national finals taking place in May 2010.
The qualification system often depends on the number of contestants and on how much interest electronic sports generate in a particular country, as well as on the quality of the national organisations involved. Some countries, such as Denmark, have high-level players but do not have major local tournaments, and, as a result, have not previously been able to qualify for ESWC, while other countries, including the United Kingdom, boast a very active national community and wide-scale events, but have yet to succeed in placing a single player in the finals.
In 2010, the Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC) will take place from 30 June to 4 July at Disney’s Newport Bay Club® Convention Centre at Disneyland® Paris (France). The event will be broadcast to over 50 countries, as well as live on the internet.

Thanks to this wide range of attractions, and with 8,200 hotel rooms and a 23,500m2 surface area devoted to conventions, seminars, exhibitions, product launches and gala dinners, Disneyland® Paris is also a leading site in Europe for integrated business travel.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
