A $30 per person registration/entry fee (this is currently an estimate) will be charged to help cover the costs of organizing and running the competition. Lunch, coffee, and light refreshment will be provided for the participants of competition. The registration fee will be collected only on site; cash or checks will be accepted. Please make checks payable to “Kansas State University”. We highly recommend that each blue team leader collects the registration fee from each team member and writes only one check for the entire team.

8:30am – 9:00am Check-in
9:00am – 9:30am Welcome

(certificates and awards will be mailed in early November)

Additional Information:

To prepare for the competition, each blue team should have a team leader and a faculty coach. Each blue team can have a maximum of eight student team members, including the team leader. Each student blue team member should bring a laptop with Wi-Fi capability.

To prepare for the competition, each blue team should have a team leader and a faculty coach. (The team leader should complete the registration form.) Each blue team can have a maximum of eight (8) student team members, including the team leader. Each student blue team member should bring a laptop with the ability to connect to Ethernet. Wi-Fi will be available in case of unforeseen connectivity problems, but bandwidth will be limited and we cannot guarantee good connectivity. It is also recommended that every laptop be able to connect to remote machines via both RDP and SSH. The recommended software is as follows:

Microsoft Windows Users: Windows Remote Desktop Client, PuTTY
Linux Users: Remmina RDP Client, OpenSSH Client

Additionally, each laptop should have an up-to-date Firefox and/or Chrome browser.

Blue team documents will be posted here as soon as they are ready. Please set up your basic competition environment on your laptop and read these documents very carefully before you arrive at the competition. This will significantly reduce your learning time and maximize your achievement during the competition.

Good luck everyone!
