ROCA 2021

ROCA Online, Version 2.0

Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the second edition of ROCA retained the online format of its predecessor and featured 16 teams from across the globe.

The Opening Ceremony took place on Sunday 24 October, 2021.  Matches began on Monday 25 October and continued throughout the week. The medalists for each case were announced during the Closing Ceremony on Saturday 30 October.

Teams were given 6 hours to read each case and prepare their solution and presentation. All teams solved cases in a time slot catered to their own time zones and produced 13-minute presentations that were recorded.  Judges from leading companies across Canada’s national capital region viewed these presentations, then led a 12-minute live Q&A session in which teams were asked to defend their solution.  All teams received extensive feedback from the jury regarding their presentation and case solving skills.
