Call for Sponsors

I. Sponsorship Areas

Currently, we are looking for sponsors for the following areas:

a) Prizes for the winning teams: as in any other competition we want to attract participants. The prizes can be in different forms:

  • Cash (preferable)

  • GPUs

  • Compute sources (less preferable due to possible geo limitations)

b) Support for the participants: Here, we are looking to providing support in compute to all the IGLU participants. As we all know, running ML experiments is not affordable for everyone. So any help with the compute that we can redistribute among participants is highly appreciated.

c) Support with human-in-the-loop: Crowdsourcing (especially) at stage 2 would be quite expensive, we will limit it to only the winning team. However, having sponsors for that part will help us to extend the evaluation, which will lead to broader and more comprehensive evaluation.

d) Support of the hosting platforms

II. Benefits Option

IGLU competition has the following benefits options for sponsor partners:

a) Acknowledgment in a particular category (Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum) and banner on our website

b) Promotional material (you can decide what it can be, e.g. flyers or booklets) for the competition participants

c) 5 min 'sponsored lighting talk' at the workshop

III. Sponsorship Category

  • Bronze: II(a)

  • Silver: II(a), II(b)

  • Gold: II(a), II(b), II(c)

  • Platinum: II(a), II(b), II(c) + A tailored deal, for example, make you the sponsor for a workshop event
