Registration and rules
The IM²C 2019 will occur from 12 March – 5 April 2019. Team registrations will open towards the end of term 1 in 2019. These dates will be announced later in the year.
Dates will be specified for these events:
- Opening of team registrations (commencing the first week of term 1 in 2019)
- When the IM²C 2019 problem becomes available (the beginning of the competition period)
- Final date for submission of reports is the 5 April
Teams will choose up to five days during the competition period to work on the problem and complete their team report.
To participate in the IM²C a team must have a team advisor, usually a teacher, from that school. It is the advisor’s responsibility to make sure that teams follow all steps required for participation in IM²C.
There are several procedures that a team’s advisor must go through at various times before, during, and after the contest. It is important that the team's advisor reads the instructions and rules carefully and ensures that the team completes all the steps involved.
As soon as each team is formed, including nomination of a team advisor, the team should register its intention to enter the Australian Regional Round of the IM²C by completing the online registration form when registrations for the year open, and before the commencement of the contest period for that year’s Australian Regional Round of the Challenge.
