With all due respect to the organizers decision which is going to have the final say, i would argue my case for an Offline format for the ISC not only this year but also in the years to follow.
This makes me feel my earlier post wasn't clear, as no one has suggested cutting off the offline component as far as I can see.
Just to clarify, my earlier point includes the offline component too. 2011 was certainly the ideal format, whether you are in favor of an offline or an online event. But organizing that much is difficult, and that should be considered. Thats what I meant by "its easier to include an online qualifier than including more cities". I don't think anyone is suggesting that there shouldn't be an offline component, I'm all for it, and we are only arguing the merit of holding an online round as well. I'm sure the merit is obvious - a chance for those who can't make it to the offline events so they still have a shot at reaching the finals.
hi everyone, i would like to request to organizes to organize isc 2013 after 7-april due to my engg. competitive exams,
I hope LMI team will look forward to my request.
(please give this beginner a chance)
