COVID-19 Update

August 30, 2020

In light of the ongoing pandemic, the decision has been made not to host the 2020 edition of NWERC onsite at Reykjavík University. Instead, planning is underway for a distributed contest during the first quarter of 2021, with local contest sites across the region. We are actively looking for volunteers and points of contact for participating universities and countries to help us make the contest become a reality.
