Security Announcement: As Thailand is undergoing political crisis, the organizing committee of the 2nd AWSDC is confident that up until today, 26th May 2014, the situation is under control despite military coup. Hence, your participation in our tournament would not render you any difficulties or danger. The presence of the military junta has encouraged peaceful conduct and the military is also engaging with protesters as courteously as possible. The discontent has not resulted in escalating violence nor has it affected the livelihood of civilians given that every social sector (schools, universities, businesses and banks) is operating as per normal amid curfew law from 10pm – 5am. The venue of the tournament (Sukhumvit 64) and accommodation (Kluaynamthai) are located far away from the protest sites and military presence is limited to those protesting areas and crucial streets at night- only namely Victory Monument, Ratchadamri and Baromratchachonani road. Please be rest assured that the organizing committee will update participants with accurate information regarding the political situation and would take necessary action to ensure your safety.
Even though the 1st Phase of registration has ended, it is still possible for new institutions which missed the deadline of the first phase to register during the 2nd phase by following the link provided on the homepage of our website.
Adjudicator subsidy application has opened and anyone is welcome to register. However, team's adjudicators are not allowed to register since it will contradict the purpose of having N=1 rule imposed. You can only apply for adjudicator subsidy if you forfeit the status of team adjudicator and find a substitute for your position.
