First open NEERC-2015 Predictions Contest is started. It is new implementation of ejudge-based Predictions Contest, which were usually running for the people, who are registered at SnarkNews. Now registration is more easy: predictions Contest is based on Yandex.Contest engine, so anyone who registered at Yandex may try to guess NEERC results.
Predictions Contest consists of two nominations: in first one you have to guess teams, who will finish at first six places. For each place you select a team and submit this team (note that each team must be submitted separately). When the NEERC results will be announced, you will earn 1 point for any team in Top6 you named and additional 1 point for any team you named at its correct place. It is possible to change your guess; last one will be counted. In case of tie player, who did his final guess earlier, will take advantage.
In second nomination you have to guess universities, which will qualify to the 2016 World Finals from NEERC. You have one list and you shall mark atleast one and at most 20 universities. Final score will be calculated following next formula: number_of_guessed_teams+20-max(number_of_marked_teams, number_of teams_qualified_from_NEERC). As in first nomination, you may change your guess; last guess is counted as final one and in case of tie player, who did his final guess earlier, will take advantage.
Now, after NEERC-2015 results are finalized, here are the standings:
Congratulation to winners!
