IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members—supported by an IEEE Student Branch, advised and proctored by an IEEE member—compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.
- All participants must be IEEE members (Student member or Graduate Student member only) to register and compete in the competition. IEEE membership numbers are required.
- Participants must compete as part of a team of up to three IEEE Student or Graduate Student members. Teams should only include a maximum of two Graduate Student members per team.
- Universities and colleges can have multiple teams.
- Each team must have a proctor to supervise during the 24-hour programming competition.
- Team members must solve and complete the problems without assistance from others.
Proctors should be an IEEE member of higher membership grade (not an undergraduate or Graduate Student member).
- Monitoring the general flow of the activity
- Informing students when the competition begins, at the middle of it, when there are six hours left, and when there is one hour left
- Ensuring that no one external to the team members helps or assists the student participants in resolving the problems in any way.
A proctor can monitor no more than eight teams.
A proctor must be physically located within the venue at all times throughout the 24-hour competition.
Students attending universities who do not have an IEEE Student Branch on campus can still participate in the IEEEXtreme competition. This is an opportunity to bring students together to have fun with IEEE activities. Consider using this opportunity as a way to form a Student Branch.
