  4. Does every team member need to register for the hackathon? Yes, every member of the team has to fill the complete registration form(even if you join by receiving a team invite from someone). Failing to do so will make your team's registration null and void.

  6. Will the idea submitted by a team be the same idea they will be developing during the hackathon?

However, participants are expected to develop the entire hack during the duration of the hackathon only.

  7. What shouldn’t I bring? Anything that is particularly harmful won't be allowed on the campus. Yes, our security would be checking each and every individual.

However, criteria like GitHub and LinkedIn profiles of participants taken during registration will also be considered. The decision made by CSI - RAIT with regards to selection of ideas will be final and cannot be challenged.

  10. Since there is no specific technology mentioned, are there any restrictions on using number of pre-built libraries? There is no restriction to use any language, technology stack, or libraries.

  12. Will travel reimbursements be provided? For all the participants coming from outside of Maharashtra, travel reimbursement capped at a specific amount depending upon your city would be provided, upon submission of your travel tickets.

  13. If it is a team submission, does that mean all team members have to submit the idea online? No, only the team leader of the respective team needs to submit their idea online in any one of the 6 given themes.

So, participants are requested to bring their own extension cords if possible. Wi-Fi will be provided for all.

  15. Who will own the IP(Intellectual Property) Rights to the product that I have built? The developer/developers of the web/mobile application will have all rights and own the IP of the product. However, all code needs to be in public domain (open source) so that it can be evaluated by the judges.
