Higher School of Economics and Yandex are proud to announce an olympiad created by and for data analysts.
Bringing the world of Data Competitions to the grand stage for people in all walks of life, be they PhD holders, company teams, students or new data scientists, the event is open to all teams and individuals alike.

To take part in the Olympiad, each team participant must register. Each team consists of 1-3 members.
