Pacific Rim Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition

There has been a lot more interest this year, so we need to determine how many teams plan to compete this year.

The cut off date is January 11th .

Each team consists of eight students, with a cap of two graduate students per team. Schools may enter teams per the national guidelines. The teams competing this year are:
