Are judges' scorecards submitted at the end of each round, or at the end of fight?

If anyone has the answer to this, I'd love to know. Also, do the judges sit within speaking distance of each other? Are they allowed to communicate with other people during the fight?

Fights are judged round by round. There is no going back and changing a round once it is over.

I'm pretty sure that technically there is not supposed to be any communication between judges, but they sit pretty close to each other, so it would be difficult or impossible to police it.

I thought the judges are pretty much placed on opposite sides of octagon for different points of view. Never really bothered to find out where they exactly sit though so I cold be wrong about that.
