Application period

Primary Selection

 If you are not from Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia or Turkey where representative teams are selected at national competitions, you must attend this session. The primary selection is a mock competition and plays the role of your national selection. Based on the score of this session, 3 teams representing your country will be selected. However, when there are less than 4 applicant teams from your country, the primary selection will become your practice session and your team will automatically proceed to the competition on May 28.
 At the primary selection, you will experience a 12 hour competition on the same time schedule as the GYEC on May 28th. Please note that if you send your submissions before the deadline, you can finish the competition within earlier than 12 hours.

Competition Schedule

In order to avoid having students work midnight, both at the Primary Selection and the Final Selection, participating teams are allocated to 5 time zones. So you will start your challenge between 6 am and 9 am in your country time. We will let the registered teams know which time zone each team belongs to.
Please confirm which time zone your team belongs to on the schedule sheet before the competition starts. All the announcement of the winners will be made at Japan Standard Time (JST).
