Registration Questions
Is there a registration fee?  Yes, the 2014 registration fee will be $250 (USD), which will be payable online. 
 
Are international teams permitted?  Yes, with the exception of countries facing certain sanctions with the United States that would prevent URC registration and participation.
 
When will registration close?  January 31, 2014.
 
Should we start work on our systems before we register?  Yes - you should start as soon as possible!  Uncertain where to begin?  Read our advice page!
 
Is there a limit to the number of teams that can register for URC2014?  No; although if an overwhelming number of teams register, we will make appropriate competition format adjustments to ensure that all teams are able to compete.  Don't worry, the tasks and overall competition experience won't change; but we will have to find a way to work with our finite time and other resources.
