Contest format update

September 19, 2021

After much deliberation we - the NWERC 2021 organizers - have concluded that is still not feasible for us to host a safe onsite NWERC this November. To keep the contest safe and fair we will be repeating last year's online format on November 20-21, incorporating your suggestions to make it even better. Please see this year's rules for more details.
