To get started, please fill out the pre-contest survey. Once completed, you will receive a follow-up email with the link to the contest notebook, where you start working on the problem. The total setup process will take about 15 minutes and involve a decent amount of reading. You have until Sunday Feb. 13th at 5PM EST to submit predictions.
If you plan to work with a partner during the contest, please submit only one survey response for your team. You are free to change your team status at this point, regardless of whether you originally registered as an individual or a team. However, this survey will be the final confirmation of whether you plan to work as an individual or as a pair – you cannot change your status mid-contest.
If you have any questions throughout the contest, please email this inbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly. We will be actively monitoring the inbox between 5-10PM ET Friday, 8AM-10PM ET Saturday, and 8AM-5PM ET Sunday.
PS: Throughout the contest please be sure to monitor your spam/junk folder. Alternatively, please whitelist our datathon email accounts (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org). Here are some instructions for doing this in Gmail and Outlook.
