Registration Process

The NCPC registration uses the official ICPC registration system. This makes the registration process simpler for both students and site directors and also increases the chanses that NWERC gets more slots in the World Final. To register a team follow this registration guide. All teams should register through the ICPC system, even those that are not ICPC eligible.
