IMPORTANT: Downtime and Deadline Extension
Due to reasons beyond our control related to maintenance tasks throughout the University Campus hosting the Robust Reading Competition portal, the Web portal of the Robust Reading Competition might experience short periods of downtime during 30/3 and 31/3.
As this downtime interferes with the submission process the deadline has been extended by two days to Thursday 2/4 at 23:59 CET.
We strongly advice to download the datasets required for doing your experiments early, so that you can keep working on your submissions during any possible downtime of the portal.
If you encounter any difficulty whatsoever, please let us know and we will do our best to help out. During this time, please make use of both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to contact us.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this might cause.
