2018 National CDC Details

Remote access open, scenario released. Click here for more.

*NCDC LODGING DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE HERE*

Hello,
My name is Daniel Limanowski and I am your Director for the 2018 Iowa State University National CDC (NCDC). This page details everything your school needs to know about signing up for the NCDC, so be sure to read through it all!

Scenario:

Note that this video is NOT representative of the official scenario document and may be subject to change.

Important Dates: The following list contains dates relevant to the NCDC.
1) Signup opens (November 14, 2017)
2) Signup closes (December 8, 2017 at 11:59PM)
3) Scenario deployed, begin remote setup (TENTATIVE: January 8, 2017 +/- a few days!)
4) On-site Setup Phase in Ames, IA (February 2, 2018…12:00PM – 10:00PM)
5) On-site Attack Phase & Debrief in Ames, IA (February 3, 2018…8:00AM – 5:00PM)

Signing up: All 4-year universities in the U.S., a select number of community colleges, and ONE of the top three teams from the Fall ISU CDC are all invited to sign up and compete in the NCDC. ISEAGE is placing a firm cap of 25 teams for this competition. The list of teams competing is generated on a first-come, first-serve basis with respect to the time your school signed up.

Each school, whether it be 4-year or community college, is allowed to send exactly one team of UP TO eight student competitors to represent their school. Extra teams under the same school will be removed if extra teams signup.

Once signup closes, an email will go out (and we will post on cdc.iseage.org) with the exact list of teams competing.

Each competitor needs to sign up and join their school’s team, which the captain can create. Please be sure to label your “Organization” as your school’s name upon team creation. Signup closes on December 8th, 2017 at 11:59PM. Head to https://signup.iseage.org/ to get started.

Lodging/Travel: The competition takes place in Coover Hall on the Iowa State Campus in Ames, Iowa. A separate email will be sent out in the next two weeks regarding hotel event/conference discount rates. ISEAGE does not accommodate for lodging or travel and it is the responsibility of teams to handle this themselves.

Livestream: ISEAGE will be livestreaming the on-site setup and attack phase of the NCDC on https://twitch.tv/iseage – feel free to share the link with anyone who wants to tune into the event.

Questions: Any and all CDC-related questions must be sent to cdc_support@iastate.edu

We will be detailing ISEAGE staff support methods in further emails just before the remote setup phase begins.

ISEAGE is proud to present the 2018 Iowa State University National CDC and we hope to see your school competing.

Cheers,
Daniel Limanowski
