Hi, Sharif University of Technology is holding an international AI competition. You may read a short description about it below:

=========

Student Scientific Chapter of computer engineering department at Sharif University of Technology will hold the first international Sharif Artifical Intelligence Challenge on March 2nd and 3rd.

This competition will be held in two phases including an online and an on-site phase in which competitors will compete in teams of three in a game designed by our technical team.

The only pre-requisite to enter this competition is familiarity with programming using C++, Java or python. But obviously, knowledge of algorithmic thinking and artificial intelligence will be a great asset for any of the participating teams. The registration for online competition is free and open from february 1st through to february 8th available at http://aichallenge.sharif.edu .

After finishing the online phase which starts on February 9th and continues untill February 17th we will run submitted codes and teams with highest scores will make it to on-site competition. Winners of on-site competition are awarded. For further news and announcment please checkout our blog at http://aichallenge-en.blog.ir or follow @aichallenge on twitter and instagram.

THE COMPETITION IS FIERCE.

=========

UPDATE #1: On-line competition is open to everyone however to participate in the on-site contest you have to be a student. You may participate in the on-line competition with a team of at most three members however participating in the on-site contest requires a team with exactly three members.

It is written on the site that this is "a student programming contest". Are professionals allowed to participate as well, or is it student-only?

    The on-site competition is a student programming contest but in online phase being a student is not necessary.

I think it's very good idea to write almost all the text in a code block

      such a text can be hard to write only if you write it with one toe using ed.

    monospace fonts like what we use in coding , aren't good for writing and reading texts. we use this type of fonts in codes just for less ambiguity and readability of many special characters in codes. ( you can read in Wikipedia )

    beside that , If they are good , then why newspapers or books or ... do not use them ?

      newspapers or books or ... do not use them because monospace fonts are only for true elite, just like TS

Are inter-college teams allowed? Or all the team members must be from the same institute?
