Representatives from IMC will be available to help out with strategies, as well as providing some more insight about what it's like to work at one of the world's most active proprietary trading firms and a key market maker.

There will be prizes, food, and fun times to be had by all! For COVID-19 contact tracing reasons, make sure to sign up on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/uqcs-codejam-presented-by-imc-tickets-144518525801
