Hi Everyone,

The selection list for all the regionals (Amrita, Chennai and Kanpur) is out now. You can find the selected teams and their sites below.
Amrita, Chennai, Kanpur

Thus, it would be fun to know more about the teams participating in the competition.

Please feel free to comment the regionals you have qualified for, the location you will be visiting and your teammates.

Also, it would be fun if you could mention something interesting about your team.

For eg. (some prompts)
- Something interesting about a teammate or your past performance OR
- Your rival team whom you would like to challenge
- Preferences in problemset (eg. all geometry problems). (The authors are likely to see these requests and double down on your weaknesses) OR
- What will you do if you AK the problemset in 3 hours

Looking forward to meet many people in the community!

Is it compulsory for all the team members and the coach to be present for the on-site contest? Will the team be disqualified if one of the team members or the coach doesn't attend the onsite regional?

    From what I know, the coach doesn't need to be present. About team members, I am not sure of the policy (but during covid times, even in world finals, I think one team participated with only one person present, so it shouldn't be a big problem if there is a valid reason).

    One of our team members couldn't attend the last Kanpur-Mathura regionals, but we were allowed to participate as a team of 2, so it shouldn't be a problem.
