The Grand Reverse Engineering Challenge runs in two rounds: Round 1 starts May 21 and Round 2 starts July 3. The competition ends midnight, anywhere on earth, July 18. The total prize sum is USD 10,000. All individuals are welcome to participate. The only requirement is that you run our data collection framework in the background (typically within a Linux virtual machine) as you solve the challenges. The data collected will be published (anonymized, of course) and used to learn how reverse engineers solve problems in practice.
UPDATE: Congrats to Li Xusheng for winning the $5,000 1st price and to Varun Iyer for winning the $2,000 2nd price! Li Xusheng got 7 points for solving challenges 5, 7, 8, and 10, and Varun got 4 points for solving challenges 5, 8, and 10. The rest of the challenges remain unsolved.
