PLANCKS is a world-wide competition, but we cannot host every physics team in the world. If too many teams register, a selection must be made. This selection will be country-dependent, to ensure that PLANCKS truly is a world-wide competition.

In most cases, when too many teams from one country register, we will draw to determine which teams will participate. However, in some countries preliminaries will be held to select the best teams. Currently, preliminaries will be held in Austria, Germany, Hungary, The Netherlands, Portugal and Romania. Below you’ll find the contact details for each preliminary.
