From a Facebook post:
Venue: Dresden, Germany
Date: 10-12 October 2014

Prizes: There will be several titles and trophies for the best participants. In particular, the MEMORIAD Association will sponsor free flights to the MEMORIAD 2016 competition (planned to be held in Las Vegas, USA) (http://www.memoriad.com/) for the winners in the categories addition, multiplication, square roots and calendar calculation as well for the winner of the combination.

Organizational stuff: Participants have to pay their travel expenses and the hotel rooms. Affordable hotel offers will be published on the web site soon enough.

And of course, it would also be very welcome if you or your company would offer sponsorship!
