There is a slight change in the date for the Indian Sudoku Championship.
The event will start at 14:00 on Sunday, 11th August similar to the IPC which also started on a Sunday.
The ISC will also be extended for 48 hours from the start to accommodate all international participants.

Typically it is expected 5 days before the event. The IPC IB was released in that time-frame, so I assume this will be too. I assume as soon as the Instruction booklet is ready, the organizers will post it.

No (We are starting on Sunday. If it is not open for full weekend, some international players might find it difficult to participate)

2 things -

In overlapping Sudoku - Do we assume that the overlap will be "clean" like the IB example, or is it possible that it will cut into boxes? (e.g. I think the one at the WSC in 2012 had just 2 rows/columns that weren't overlapping, instead of 3 as in the example)

Answer keys - Again, in Overlapping Sudoku, I assume that the non-overlap parts will also need to be entered, making the key possibly longer than 9 digits? Also, in Smashed Sums Sudoku, how should the black/blank cells be denoted in the key?

Hie there are grey/dotted lines, grid lines and areas in following sudokus : Killer, Renban ,Thermo, Arrow, Vudoku, even killer. So can I expect them little darker in actual puzzle booklet, as they are not visible on printing on paper. Especially vudoku and arrow hard to see. So if it possible to make it darker then it would be helpful :)

You have to find the black cells. On the left you will find a sum of 28, which means the black cells for that row are in C1 and C9. You can go on from there.

Four participants were selected from the Times Sudoku Championship. We expect them to do well in the ISC too.
We will be looking for the top 4 apart from those who have qualified from TSC.
We will also be considering exceptional performances by some newcomers, who could benefit from the exposure of a World Championship.

Well, you may have to search for the exact variants related to the ISC, but there is a lot of practice material on this site. LMI conducts regular Beginners' Contests and Monthly Tests. Look through the test links/ PDFs in both those links and that should be more than enough to practice. If any doubts/queries regarding a particular Sudoku, you can always post that here and one of us will surely help.

A question thats been asked frequently via sms and E-mail -

I have registered on the forum. How to register for ISC?

Answer - There is no separate registration. Once the Submission page is active, there will be a place to enter login details, and you need to enter the same user-name and password as the one you used to register on the forum.
