Dear all please be noted for below info,
As you’ve seen from the IC.com platform updates over the past several days, we have been working to determine if an Embedded Development Round 1 deadline extension is necessary and, if so, what the new deadline should be. We have decided that we should extend the deadline to allow competitors additional time to create teams and upload submissions. This deadline extension might also benefit the field in your efforts to encourage additional registrations and participation in the competition.
The updated Embedded Development Round 1 deadline is January 16, 2011 at 11:59 PM GMT, one week later than the original deadline. Please consider this deadline official and feel free to communicate to students and faculty. This Round 1 deadline change will not result in a change of the Round 2 start and end dates.
We are in the process of sending a newsletter to notify Embedded competitors, updating the rules and other copy throughout the website, and announcing via social media.
Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have questions or if we can support you in any way.
