IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE student members supported by an IEEE Student Branch and advised and proctored by an IEEE member compete against each other to solve a set of programming problems during a 24-hour time span.



All active participants in the competition will receive a certificate, T-shirt, and give-aways for their effort and activity. The winning team members will receive an expenses-paid trip to an IEEE conference of their choice, anywhere around the world. Roundtrip coach airline tickets for each winner from winner’s preferred major metropolitan airport to the conference destination, conference registration fees, and a two night hotel stay (confirmation pending) will be provided by IEEE for winning team members.

Costs of meals, transportation to and from each winner’s airport of origin, and the conference destination airport, ground transportation at the conference destination, gratuities, and all other expenses not specified as part of the prize package are the sole responsibility of each winner.

Travel documents including passports and visas, if required, are the responsibility of the winning team members.

Second and third place teams will receive a netbook. The top place team from each region will also receive special IEEE merchandise.

Taxes, if any, are the sole responsibility of each winning team member.
