oh and can more than one person work on a submission at a time?
Build submissions should be PDF files for easy access.

According to the FAQ, "You are allowed to collaborate and check over each other’s work, but each user must submit at the minimum one individual submission. We encourage posting questions on the forums!"

You are allowed to make a test or notes for any event you wish, B or C.

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.

Can I submit my MissionPo device (div B), from two years back - with, for example, views from multiple angles, along with my transfer sequence list?

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Now answered at the end of "Submissions [Formatting]" in the FAQs (edited to be more general). It's good to consider what would be useful to you and others:
1) The study session is mostly so *you* study, and generally people (I'm told) get the most out of making their own work.
2) We also like to see that submissions aren't useless to others. We may ask you to provide details, namely build plans.

As I try to explain in the FAQs, this process is meant to be collaborative and positive: either emailing us and our mods or asking on the forums / in this thread, etc to learn new ideas or approaches! That's the main stuff I can think of off the top of my head, can update if I think of more.

For Astronomy, the topic is listed as being "star and galaxy formation and evolution". However, according to the event supervisor webinar (http://chandra.harvard.edu/edu/olympiad_2019.html), they say the topic will remain the same as this year ("stellar evolution in normal and starburst galaxies") but with new DSOs. Is this true, or have they changed their minds since then? Thanks.

I think forever and syo probably have the most up to date info for Astro. I'm expecting a slightly different topic related to galaxies.
