Prizes of the 2017 Level Generation Competition

IEEE will sponsor US$1,000 in prizes for our level generation competition according to the following policy: 

  • Appointable candidates:
    • Student (PhD, Master, Bsc, high school,…, primary school)
    • Young professional (within 8 years after the first degree. If someone got a bachelor 8 years ago, got a master 6 years ago and finished his/her PhD about 2 years ago is still eligible).
    • Student and Young professional are treated equally.
    • A team in which at least one of the main contributors is a student or a young professional.
    • The controller should beat all the sample controllers provided by the organisers.
  • Appointable winners:
    • Prizes are given if the competition has at least 5 submissions. Of course the sample controllers provided by the organisers are excluded.
    • The winners should be *appointable candidates*, then ranked as:
      • Category 1: The appointable candidates present at the CIG conference, by ranking of the controllers. If *less than three* appointable candidates present at the CIG conference, then proceed with the category 2.
      • Category 2: The appointable candidates who do not present at the CIG conference, by ranking of the controllers (though possibly one of the non-appointable team members present at the CIG conference).
  • Prizes:
    • First ranked: US$500
    • Second ranked: US$300
    • Third ranked: US$200
