On October 14th the Belgian company Caeleste will organize the 'Electroniad' in Flanders' science museum, located in the city of Mechelen. Technopolis should be the ideal venue for a competition among teams of 4 members each. Every team will be tested on its knowledge of electronics.

Caeleste is a well-known Belgian company, one of the world players in the design and realization of high-end image sensors to be used in scientific and medical applications, among others. To celebrate its 10 years of existence, the company is staging an international ‘Electroniad’, thus referring to the classic Greek Olympiad and its Olympic credo that participating is more important than winning.

The Electroniad will consist of 8 rounds of 10 questions each. The questions will be presented on two screens, one for Dutch speaking participants and one for English speaking participants. The questions are compiled around certain topics like analog/mixed mode electronics, digital optoelectronics and the history of electronics. The questions should reveal knowledge as well as competence and creativity of each of the teams.

The team with the highest overall score wins the Electroniad. There will be sub-competitions, for example for highschool and university teams.

Teams wishing to register and grab the honor of being the Electroniad Team for the coming year(s) should visit www.electroniad.org . If successful this year, the organizers will duly conisider making the Electroniad a recurrent event every four years.
