During the whole this time we've done our best to hold the offline tournament in February 2021. Unfortunately, as you can see, the epidemiologic situation is still not quite easy. We want all of the participants, jury members, and organizers to have a chance to join us at the Grand final. That's why we announce that the Grand final of XI INST won't take place in February 2021. We'll do our best to hold it during 2021 and inform you about new dates as soon as possible. However, we'll hold some kind of online event in February, so stay tuned, and we'll give the details soon!
And of course, next week we'll announce the results of the Extramural round!
