Team’s Time zones

Competition Schedule

During the competition days, we will have 4 challenges and on the final day 27th, teams will have a presentation to wrap up their work, compare themselves with other teams, their contribution to infrastructure and the ConstructSim, and what would be their future work.

For each challenge, teams need to record the run of challenge’s map and submit it. It should be mentioned that using the ConstructSim will give a bonus.
Then each team will have 10 min to present their work and innovations on that challenge and the other teams will have the right to ask questions for 5 min at the end. Presentations may include videos, images or analysis of team’s proposed approach on different maps.
After all teams presented their work there would be a debate between the teams where they could challenge other teams’ approaches. Finally teams and committee members will score each team. The scoring format will be announced soon.
