Mentors / Judges

Mentors help the participants through the Ullarthon by providing them guidance in their area of expertise. Mentors decide how much time they want to dedicate to the event, and when they will be available.

When signing up as a mentor, you specify in which area you (or your institution) might be able to help. We will then contact you with more information. The mission is to have as diverse group of mentors as possible to help the teams.
