Welcome back! We hope you had a great summer and we look forward to working with you again. Gagik Hakobyan and I will continue to be NYCIML Co-Presidents this year. In order to register for NYCIML contests, the link is below:
Please make sure you register with us before the first contest (preferably before Saturday, October 4th).
We want to let you know that there are rule changes this year. In the previous years, we had run into the issue with uneven team sizes. This is because the previous rules allowed for switching of representing students in between pairs of questions. In an effort to make the team sizes more balanced, the new rules prohibit switching in between pairs of questions and requires that five active students compete the entire semester. In cases where one of the five students is not available, we allow a substitution. However, each team has a maximum of two substituting students who will be included in our database and cannot change until the semester ends. For more information about the rule change, please read “Team composition and number of teams per school” in the PDF attached in this email. This information is also available on our website here: https://nyciml.org/
If you have any questions about the rules, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, as promised, we designed a new scoring system. We are currently running our final tests to ensure that there will be minimal problems in the near future. More information on how to report scores will be available within a week.
Thank you, and we hope to see you soon!
NYCIML Co-President 2013-2015
