Could you clarify when exactly the challenge actually ends? The website says "Jan. 25, 2021, midnight UTC". Is that 5 pm EST on Jan 25 or 5 pm EST on Jan 24?
I hope that you don't mind me chiming in here.
The instructions under Participate>Get Data contain the following:
Participants should submit their test set output through the online challenge interface by 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on January 25, 2021. An acknowledgment will be sent within 2 business days of receipt of results. In case no confirmation of receipt is received, please contact the challenge organizers.
This seems to be right at the end of Monday, January 25, 2021 (PST) which is different from the information on the timeline (Jan. 25, 2021, midnight UTC)
Could you please help with clarifying this?Posted by: aomigbodun @ Jan. 24, 2021, 6:29 p.m.
The challenge ends on Monday January 25 by midnight Pacific Standard Time (which is 8 hours behind UTC). Apologies for the confusion due to different time zones. The end date/time has been updated (January 26, 8:00am UTC=January 25, midnight Pacific Standard Time).Posted by: kdrukker @ Jan. 24, 2021, 7:40 p.m.
