When will registration close? Consistent with Section 1.a.i of the rules, teams must register no later than October 27, 2021. There will be no exceptions granted.

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 URC2022? No; however there is a competitive down-selection process that is outlined in Section 1.a of the rules. We anticipate that 36 teams will pass the System Acceptance Review and be invited to attend URC2022.
