We regret that late or non-compliant registrations or submissions will not be considered. Make sure to keep a backup copy of your proposal;

By entering the competition you will be deemed to consent to the use of your team’s name and its participation in the competition for CERN’s education and outreach purposes. Details of your team and its proposal will also be shared by CERN with the International Particle Physics Outreach Group (IPPOG) for their outreach purposes.
