SUSS Analytics and Visualisation Challenge 2021

About the Event

The SUSS Analytics and Visualisation Challenge 2021 (AVC21) welcomes poster submissions from A'levels, International Baccalaureate, and Polytechnic Diploma students.

In this event, we will be exploring the challenges of our times. There will be two general themes:

  1. Our Youths
  2. The Covid-19 Pandemic.

Topics concerning the challenges faced by our youths may include the pressures and uncertainties they face, quarter life crisis, social media, etc. Topics concerning the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic may include work from home, home based learning, employment, social isolation, mental stress, etc. 

You may select a theme that you would like to submit your poster to. The content in your poster submissions may touch on both themes. If you are unsure about which theme to choose, just make a submission and we will help to assign your posters to the most appropriate category.

For each theme, we will select up to 6 finalists. Provisional admissions into the SUSS School of Business full-time BSc in Business Analytics with Minor programme, subject to terms and conditions, may be offered to successful poster finalists. Attractive prizes are also to be won by the winning teams of AVC21.


The SUSS Analytics & Visualisation Challenge 2021 will be held virtually on 10 September 2021 (Friday). The schedule is to be announced.

Submissions can be made by teams comprising up to 4 students (no minimum number). Each team may comprise students from different educational institutions.

The submission must include a completed registration form and a one-page poster in a PDF format. Participants under the age of 18 must also submit the "Under 18 Consent and Waiver Form". You will receive an email acknowledging your entry.

The poster will represent a summary of the analytics and/or visualisation work completed by the team. It should be formatted as a Powerpoint slide in a 4:3 landscape orientation

The finalists for the event will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Originality of idea
  • Quality of the poster displayed
  • Quality of argumentation (story)
  • Soundness of the idea presented

Each finalist will prepare a 5-minute video presentation on their submission. Please see "Poster Showcase" for the winning entries of AVC2020.

Please submit your registration form, consent and waiver forms (if any), and poster in PDF format through your team leader to by 11.59pm, 11 July 2021.
