What should I do if I want to participate in the competition and I don't have my own group?

That’s not a problem. When filling in the registration form, please pay attention to question no 15 where you should select “no” to answer the following: “Do you already have a team”. Once you do that, we will contact you to give you an opportunity to meet and be paired up with other participants without the team!

The meetups will be held at 4PM of a given meetup local time zone.

Does this tournament award Kaggle medals or affect Kaggle's official leaderboard?
