FAQ

What is the sign-up process?

First, you need to create an account on the RAMP platform. Your sign-up request will be approved after you send your proof of student status and expected date of graduation to (xianti-events@symerio.com) with a subject line "Huawei RAMP sign-up". Then, shortly before the start of the data challenge, you will need to join the corresponding event on the platform. Starting June 21 you can make submissions either individually or as a team.

How can I participate with a team?

All team members need to have an account on the RAMP platform and join the corresponding event. Then you can create a team via the corresponding interface. Note that you can only make submissions either individually or in a team, but not both. So if you made submissions on your own, you will not be able to join a team. And similarly, if your team has made submissions, you will not be able to exit the team to make individual submissions.

Something is not working on the RAMP platform.

Please ask questions in the following Slack channels,- #general: for general questions, including for instance the sign-up process- #installation-issues: for questions regarding how to use starting kit- #server-submissions: for any questions about, or issues with the RAMP platform
