SCORE-it emphasizes the engineering aspects of software development, as opposed to a narrower view that tends to reduce the endeavor and process of software construction to mere programming. The competition is targeted to students in Italian Universities at both undergraduate and master's level. Students are encouraged in forming teams, however also one-person teams are allowed.
To take part in the competition, teams must register and follow the contest rules as outlined below.
After a careful evaluation carried out by the SCORE-it Program Committee, several finalist teams will be invited to ICSE 2015 in Florence to present their projects and receive their awards at the conference.
