Because of the virus, the 2020-2021 ICPC year had changed from its usual.

The North America Division Championship will be held on April 22, 2021. Rules for eligibility will be viewed as applying as if the contest was held in November of 2020. That is, age, number of years of study and such will be calculated as if the contest was being held in the fall of 2020 to allow any student who would have been allowed to compete in November 2020 to compete at the NADC.

This will be an online contest. Teams of three students will be allowed to use three computers and communicate between team members using whatever means they prefer. Communication with people outside the team is not allowed during the contest other that asking for clarification via the Kattis interface and communicating with site personnel if any logistical problems arise. Use of local and Internet resources is allowed as long as those resources are not humans. That is, you can look at code written to solve problems posted on the Internet, but you cannot send someone a message asking for help on a problem. More detailed and official information can be found at: https://www.icpc.org/icpc-north-america-division

Dates for the North America Championship and the World Finals will be later in 2021 than usual. Note that the 2020 World Finals is planned for the summer of 2021 in Moscow, one year later than originally scheduled. So, the 2021 World Finals will be late in the year, likely October or November. These dates may slip even later if COVID continues to be a major problem.
