3. About ethics
Considering the particularity of the 31st World Memory Championships, participants cannot gather in one country to participate in the competition. To ensure the fairness and justice of the competition and respect the efforts of every competitor, the following ethics procedures are hereby introduced:
(1) Mr. Dominic O’Brien serves as the head of the WMSC ethics committee. When there is any dispute over unethical behavior, WMSC ethics committee will make the final decision.
(2) Every country needs to set up an ethics committee.
(3) When any double challenge is raised by an international arbiter or ethics commissioner, three ethics commissioners (from different countries) will be randomly selected for ethics. The preliminary judgment will be based on the test paper, answer sheet and relevant videos. If more than half of the ethics committee believes that it is necessary to retest, the international arbiter and the competitor should cooperate in the inspection and retest according to the relevant requirements. (If they refuse to retest, the ethics committee and the global chief arbiter have the right to cancel the score of the competitor.)
(4) The retest must be carried out under the supervision of WMSC ethics committee or the head of it. The video of the retest shall be reserved and evaluated by the ethics committee under the guidance of the head of it and the global chief arbiter. If there is disagreement, WMSC ethics committee will make the final decision.
Under such global epidemic environment, the World Memory Sports Council and the Asia Pacific memory sports Council are willing to work together with memory lovers and mind mapping warriors around the world to overcome difficulties and jointly protect the dreams of all brain warriors. May you fight for honor and crown your dreams!
