    Join us on Monday 23 Nov 12PM CET / 5PM GMT at this online event to hear all about the new Call for Call Spot Challenge for Wildfires. Or go to the this page to sign up and start working with the data and build your prediction models.

    • The ultimate goal of the challenge is to predict the area of wildfires in 7 regions in Australia for February 2021 with historical data, so you will be predicting fires before they have happened!

    • The final submissions will be on 31 January 2021.

    • But until then you can work on your model with the below data and any other open datasets that you think might be relevant.

    • Before the final submission there will be three prediction submissions to first predict the wildfires in February 2020, and then for the third and fourth week of January. This will give you time to improve your model before the final submission.
    Find more info here, and on the leaderboard and github repo.
