The University of Vigo participates in these competitions since 2005, when the submitted algorithm ranked first among 8 participants in an event held in Paris. In 2007, the team repeats its previous success obtaining first and second positions among 9 systems in Friburg (Switzerland). Now, in 2009, they hope to repeat a well-deserved victory.
