Will I have to present a working prototype of my idea or is a concept acceptable?

Are there any examples of a valid entry?

I've gone through the template, but an example entry on one of the experiments would be nice. Maybe the one in the slides about setting a fake bomb.

Is the winner of the Prospective Perspective prize also eligible for stage 2, or is stage 2 just for the Credibility Champions?
Can a Credibility Champion also win the Prospective Perspective prize?

In the first Q & A session, the moderators (? Third-party contractors?) said that they would later share the names of authors, books, manuscripts that Dr Pollina mentioned. Has a list of those been shared on the contest pages here? Perhaps its somewhere else or I failed to spot it. Thanks.

You can find a list of Resources near the bottom of the CASE Challenge Microsite (https://www.iarpa.gov/challenges/casechallenge.html) . Specifically, the first item, “Collection of Credibility Assessment Scholarly Articles” is a bibliography that has a several linked articles and documents on existing techniques and theories.
