See [http://2009.igem.org/wiki/images/a/a5/Team_roster.png this example].  Be sure to include all members who participated over the summer, not only those who will be attending the Jamboree, as this list will be used to create participation certificates (so check for spelling mistakes too!).

For more information on how to add members/edit your Team Information page see the [[Registration_Handbook | iGEM team Registration Handbook]].
+
====Project Abstract and Title====
 +
Teams were asked to submit an abstract of 100-150 words along with their project's title (maximum 15 words) prior to the Regional Jamborees. These abstracts will be used in the World Jamboree program, which provides a guide to the different topics that iGEM World Championship teams will be presenting. If you have made any changes to your project abstract or title, you will need to resubmit it to iGEM HQ (hq (at) igem . org) before October 28th.  Please see the [[Jamboree/Project_abstract | project abstract]] page for more details.

====Tracks====
+
====Documentation====
-
Track selection helps group similar projects together so that they may be judged fairly and share presentation time. It is important that you submit your track selection on time, by September 20th. You can find a list of the tracks on the [[Jamboree/Track_Selection | tracks selection page]] and see [[Judging/Judging_Criteria#Area_Prizes | judging criteria]] for each track. Email your top 3 track selections, in order of preference, to hq AT igem DOT org.
+
'''Project:''' Each iGEM team's project should be documented on the iGEM 2011 wiki with enough detail to replicate it independently. Additional information about the team - their story, the rationale for the project, failures, successes, future work, etc. - is highly encouraged. Well-documented iGEM wikis and part pages will provide an incredibly valuable source of inspiration and resources for future teams.

====Visa Letters====
+
-
In previous years there were several teams that were not able to attend the Jamboree due to visa problems. In order to avoid a similar problem this year, we asked that all teams apply for visas by June 1 at the latest. If you need to apply for a visa to come to the Jamboree, you can use our [[Jamboree/Visa_Letter | online form]] and print out an official invitation letter.  
+
-
iGEM Headquarters does not have any authority over consulate offices or the visa application process. The only way to have the highest chance of obtaining a visa is to apply early. If you do not yet know who will be attending the Jamboree in November, err on the side of caution and have all members apply for a visa.
+
Don't forget about your project's [http://igem.org/Sample_Data_Page Data Page] and be sure to include any work that you have completed since the Regional Jamboree. The wikis will [[World_Championship_Jamboree/Handbook#Wiki_Freeze | freeze]] for World Championship teams, allowing no further changes, on October 28th.

Jamboree Handbook


The iGEM 2011 World Championship Jamboree will take place on November 5th to November 7th, 2011 at MIT in Cambridge, MA.



Pre-Jamboree

World Championship Registration

Registration for the iGEM 2011 World Championship Jamboree is open! All team member attendees of the advancing teams are required to register by October 28th. A Jamboree attendance fee of $225.00 USD is required for each undergraduate or high school student and $425.00 USD for all instructors, grad students, advisors, and other attendees. Registration after October 28 will increase $50.00. Head to the registration page to find out more details!

Note: If you are not a member of team advancing to the World Championship please be sure to read our policy on guest registration.

Project Abstract and Title

Teams were asked to submit an abstract of 100-150 words along with their project's title (maximum 15 words) prior to the Regional Jamborees. These abstracts will be used in the World Jamboree program, which provides a guide to the different topics that iGEM World Championship teams will be presenting. If you have made any changes to your project abstract or title, you will need to resubmit it to iGEM HQ (hq (at) igem . org) before October 28th. Please see the project abstract page for more details.

Documentation

Project: Each iGEM team's project should be documented on the iGEM 2011 wiki with enough detail to replicate it independently. Additional information about the team - their story, the rationale for the project, failures, successes, future work, etc. - is highly encouraged. Well-documented iGEM wikis and part pages will provide an incredibly valuable source of inspiration and resources for future teams.

Don't forget about your project's Data Page and be sure to include any work that you have completed since the Regional Jamboree. The wikis will freeze for World Championship teams, allowing no further changes, on October 28th. Judges will be viewing your wikis prior to the Jamboree, so make sure they follow the requirements and that your project is well documented.

Parts: iGEM requirements also state that all teams must properly document their parts on the Registry. The judging committee also decides what is considered proper part documentation so please see the Judging page for details. Be sure to update your part pages with any new information or work that may have been done since the Regional Jamborees. Remember, the success of not just iGEM, but all of synthetic biology, depends on the development of well-characterized, reliable, standardized biological parts that have been designed to be simple to use and understand.

Wiki Freeze

The wikis for teams advancing to the World Championship Jamboree will be frozen on October 28 at 11:59 EDT. Be sure that your wikis are up to date by this deadline as no further changes can be made. This is a particularly important deadline if your team has continued work on your project since the Regional Jamborees. Don't wait till the last minute!

The wiki freeze will not affect the [partsregistry.org] Registry or the wikis of teams that did not advance to the World Championship.

DNA Submissions

For advancing teams, if you have any parts the you were not able to send before the Regional deadline, you can submit them for the World Championship Jamboree. Your new submissions will be considered by the World Championship judges, in addition to your parts submitted for the Regional Jamborees, as long as they are received before the October 28 deadline. In addition to submitting your parts, you must also declare which of them are "favorites."

Please note that sending in additional parts is not a requirement. As always please be sure to add and document your parts on the Registry, and send them in pSB1C3! See the DNA submission requirements for more information about the DNA submission process.

Poster Requirements

There will be an official poster reception at the World Championship Jamboree held on Saturday, November 5th. Locations will be assigned at random prior to your arrival at the Jamboree. You will be required to put up your poster by 9am on Saturday. Posters shall be NO LARGER than 48 x 48in (1.22 x 1.22m, A0 size is 0.841 × 1.189m) and each team may only put up ONE poster. There will be an informal poster session on Sunday as well, so please be ready to put up your posters again. For details on poster judging see the judging page.

Note: iGEM HQ is not responsible for providing any supplemental materials (power outlets, extension cords, tables, etc.) beyond the poster boards and push pins.
