We will release the instances in three groups: early, middle, and late instances.
The early group of instances are already on our website.
The middle group of instances will be released in February 2021, and the late instances will follow half April 2021.
There is only one deadline for all problem instances which is end of April 2021.
After this deadline, we will announce the finalists.
First results will be announced at the MathSport International 2021
conference in June 2021.
The winners of the competition will be announced at the PATAT 2021
conference in August 2021.
There is also the opportunity to submit intermediate results for the early instances (first milestone).
Half January 2021, we will make a ranking of the intermediate results.
Although not obligatory, it is strongly advised to submit intermediate results since this allows to have a first idea of how your methods compare to what other participants have.
A prize is awarded to the winners of the first milestone.
