KamkGameFest (KGF) is the annual event organized by the first year data center students. The event has been organized since 2013 and is implemented as a project managed solely by students. The event is primarily a learning experience for the project team, but it is also intended to provide a competitive framework compared to other online gaming events in the surrounding area.

As a learning experience, KamkGameFest gives students the experience of project and team work, event organization, network design and implementation. There are also tournaments, including Hearthstone, Super Smash Bros, Dota 2 and CS: GO, organized in the event.

The website of the event can be found here.
