Judging Criteria

Submissions will be evaluated on:

Objective Criteria:

  1. Ability to successfully process judging datasets, compatible and consistent with the Drops test data.
  2. Production of correct output data format and content
    • Contestants will be required to produce a set of output data in the correct location(s), with correct name(s), and contents which match both the required format(s) and values
  3. Flexibility and resilience in handling conditions such as non-printable characters, escape characters, mixed-case characters, etc. without resulting in errors (see #1 above)
  4. Automatic ranking, using factors in descending importance:
    • Total elapsed time for execution of the submission
    • Total memory resources consumed during execution
    • Total CPU resources consumed during execution

The 3 top-ranked submissions for each region (indicated by the contestants’ regional selection at Registration) will be forwarded to judges for manual review, and selection of a single winner. All regional winners will then be reviewed, and final 3 global winners selected.

(Refer to “Prizes” section for breakdown by region, and prize values).

Judges ratings:

  1. The overall readability of the presentation document output
  2. Elegance and creativity used to differentiate from others
  3. Maximized use of system-provided software utilities over 3rd party packages or tools

Judges decisions are final.
