We are delighted to announce that the Northrop Grumman Corporation has made a substantial donation to support IBECC 2020 and has been named our Presenting Supporter. Northrop Grumman has been with us since our first year. Throughout our history, the company has given more to IBECC than any single donor. And we would not have been so successful without their faith and generosity. We are deeply grateful for their ongoing support..

We will officially open registration in January. In the past, our policy has been to limit schools to one team per division (undergraduate and graduate). We recognize that a school’s educational goals may be better advanced if more than one divisional team is allowed to participate, so we are prepared to make a few exceptions. Please contact us if you want to discuss this possibility.

Last month, we have had serious technical problems connected with the website. We think we have restored everything, but if you find a broken link or missing information, please let us know. Thanks for your patience as we move from one hosting company to another.
