Can we use the data to test a proof of concept for a publication? The data or model weights won’t be shared, only the performance.
Also wondering if we can publish any results from this competition!
Love the interest and thanks for asking!
This is currently not allowed. For reference, here is the relevant section from the rules

However, VisioMel is planning to make the data open and available after the competition ends. Once that is done, you’re more than welcome to use the data for publications!
