 *How does it work?*

   - The applicant should submit himself/herself for the models to be
   eligible for a prize.
   - The types of models to be uploaded by the applicant should be selected
   from a list provided by the model repository community group (which will=
 be
   published on June 30th). This list has been created to avoid duplication
   and to provide the community with access to the most recent and/or cited
   published models.


   - Other models (for instance PAGE, ACoP, other journals, etc….) =
can be
      accepted for credit, but these should be proposed in advance to the m=
odel
      repository community group (info_at_ddmore.foundation).


   - Once the applicant has selected an eligible model from the list,
   he/she will be required to submit and share that model on the DDMoRe mod=
el
   repository.
   - To be considered eligible, the model should be published following the
   submission guidelines of the DDMoRe model repository. If the model is
   uploaded in MDL/ PharmML the applicant will receive 3 credits, if the mo=
del
   is submitted in the original code the applicant will receive 1 credit. I=
f
   the model is currently not available online, the applicant will receive =
an
   additional credit on top.

 *How will the winners be decided?*

   - A panel committee will review the applications that satisfy the
   eligibility criteria.
   - The 5 applicants with the highest credit will receive a prize.

*What will the winners receive?*

   - The prizes will be determined by the level of sponsorship received by
   DDMoRe foundation for this challenge during the next few weeks (by June
   29th).
   - The prize money may be used to reimburse (in part or wholly) the
   winners travel expenses (flight/hotel) to attend ether a scientific
   congress or a training workshop.

 *Planned deadline for the challenge:* 30th of September 2017

 *Why do we believe in model exchange and transparency?*

*Modellers*
*: improve your productivity by using directly executable models published
in the DDMoRe repository and increase the impact of your own models by
sharing them! Journal editors: ensure the reproducibility of your
publication content by requiring the model code be published on the DDMoRe
repository.*
