WUDC 2013: Registration Opens Tonight!

Technische Universitat Berlin
Venue for WUDC 2013
From 3 pm Berlin time, or 20.00 WIB, today hordes of debaters around the world will try to secure slots for the 2013 World Universities Debating Championships. The 400 places are expected to fly off the rack in a flash although the registration period will last for 7 days.  To ensure Indonesian universities get on the main list, contact persons need to be prepared way ahead of time with a computer linked to a fast internet connection.

The registration follows a unique system. There is an institutional cap set at 3 teams. All institutions registering within the first 3 days will be allocated a first team on a first come, first served basis. Then, second and third teams will be allocated together, again on a first come, first served basis only to those institutions that registered in the first 3 days. If there are still remaining places available, they will be allocated in three-slot packages on a first come, first serve basis to those that registered after day 3. WUDC 2013, which will take place at Berlin's Technische Universitat, will only require N1 judges if an institution sends more than 1 team.
