All deadlines and dates are US Central Time Zone (Dallas, Texas time zone) of the calendar year 2023.
Deadlines are based on the date that the team’s invitation for the World Championship was issued, not on the date the team registers for the event. If you receive an invitation but are unsure whether your team will register, you may submit the notebook link and sign up for an interview time before your team has registered. If subsequently your team does not register, send an email with your name, email address, program (VIQC, VRC, VEX U) and your team number/letter with a brief explanation to email@example.com and your interview time will be canceled.
Choose carefully! Once the interview slot is selected and 24 hours have passed, and/or the sign-up window for remote interviews has closed, interview slots may not be changed without approval from REC Foundation Staff. If a Team Contact has multiple teams who will be interviewed, a separate sign up time must be selected for EACH team. If there are extenuating circumstances and a change to an interview time needs to be made, those requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and are not guaranteed.
Deadlines for your team to submit their Digital Engineering Notebook links and to select their interview time slot are based on the date the invitation for the VEX Robotics World Championship was issued:
