FIDE Fair Play Commission, in collaboration with the Ljubljana Chess Club, is thrilled to announce the successful conclusion of the FIDE Fair Play Seminar, held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from April 29 to May 1, 2024, during the Ljubljana Chess Festival.

Key Seminar Focus Areas Included:

  • Fair Play Legal Framework
  • Anti-Cheating Regulations
  • Prof. Regan’s Statistics
  • Technical Devices and Their Usage

The seminar was led by FIDE FPL lecturers who expertly navigated various topics, including event preparations, interactions with tournament officials and spectators, crowd management, cheating prevention and detection, observations, body language, psychological aspects, and unusual behaviours. These discussions were all conducted with the overarching goal of recognizing, detecting, and preventing unethical practices while fostering a culture of positive chess ethics.
