The Order/degree Problem Competition
The 2016 competition consists of two categories:
For the 2016 competition, the order/degree pairs (n, d) = (36, 3), (64, 8), (96, 3), (256, 8), (300, 7), (384, 3), (512, 8), (1024, 3), (1024, 8), (1024, 11), (1024, 32), (1560, 40), (1800, 7), (3250, 57), (10000, 7), (10000, 11), (10000, 20), (100000, 7), (100000, 11), (100000, 20) are featured. Only those graphs with the featured orders and degrees will be considered for the awards. However, we also welcome graphs with any order/degree pair.
All the submitted graphs will be publicated on the ranking page and the best solutions will be highlighted on the home page. An author can choose whether to disclose his/her graphs on the ranking page before the submission deadline. After the deadline, all the graph files will be made available for download.
At the beginning, solutions accepted by 2016-06-26 23:59 UTC are reviewed and publicated on 2016-06-27. Afterwards, solutions accepted within a week are reviewed and publicated every Monday. Note that a week begins at Monday 0:00 UTC and ends at Sunday 23:59 UTC.
The first-to-file rule applies to graphs with the same diameter and ASPL. For each order/degree pair, if two or more graphs have the same diameter and the same ASPL, only those publicated at the earliest time will be nominated for the awards. If there are two or more such graphs publicated at the same time, all of them will be nominated.
