What should I bring?

Bring devices, chargers, sleeping bags, toiletries, basically anything you need to be comfortable. We will provide showers at certain time slots during the weekend. Food will also be provided.

What if I don't have a team?

You don’t need a team to register! We will have a team formation session right after the opening ceremony for those who would like to work with a team. If you prefer to stay solo, that’s also great.

How should I prepare beforehand?

Make sure you have travel plans in place, especially in case of random snowfalls. Unfortunately, we do not provide travel reimbursements. It’s also nice to have an idea in mind beforehand. However, we ask that you do not bring any pre-made materials to keep the competition fair.

What is the schedule?

Here it is! Keep in mind that this is tentative.
