The organizers will carefully review and evaluate all the submissions and only the most promising and innovative ideas will be selected to proceed to the next round. During this round, participants must present their ideas in the form of a PowerPoint presentation or a talking video. The proposal should clearly outline the problem that is being addressed, the proposed solution, and the potential impact of the solution on the relevant field. The deadline for submitting ideas is set as 02/10/2023 6:00pm, so make sure to submit your proposals in a timely manner.

Round 2:

The second round of the hackathon, known as the implementation round, is where participants will have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life by developing working prototypes within a 24-hour timeframe. This round will take place on the IIIT Bhubaneswar campus on 02/03/2023, where teams will have access to various resources, including travel (subject to terms and conditions), and support to assist them in completing their projects. On the final day of the event, teams will present their final products to a panel of judges who will evaluate them based on factors such as originality, feasibility, and impact.
