During the Conference
During the conference you probably need a number of things to be organized for you. Below we listed the most common things asked for. Please note that we cannot guarantee that you get everything you request. As we expect to get many requests and we will have to disappoint proposals, please indicate both the bare minimum you need, as well as modest “nice to have”. We will decide about your admittance on the basis of your bare minimum requirements. Once we accept your CoCha we divide the equipment and space as fairly as we can over all accepted competitions/challenges.

Floor space in square meters? minimum (nice to have)! *
Can your competition or challenge be held in open space, e.g., the lobby? *
Number of beamers with screens required? minimum (nice to have)! *

Number of electricity sockets and watts? minimum (nice to have)! bring you own adapters! *
Wifi needed? Note that this is extremely costly and cannot be guaranteed *
Anything else that you would like to tell us now?
Any other information that you think we need to know now? Note that we will contact you after we receive your proposal to discuss your proposal. In principle, we do this for every proposal as IJCAI is really keen on having great competitions and challenges associated with IJCAI.
