Registration date had extended to 31 October 2010 due to many requests from students worldwide.

I had personally experienced this great event on 2010. It was really well organized and I did learn a lot from other competitors around the world. It is a competition worth to spend some sleepless night and come out a proposal. Don’t miss this opportunity again this time if you miss it last time.
