We delayed the running of the competition in the US due to the passing-away of one of our esteemed partners: Dr. Nicolas Barcia. Nick (as he preferred to be called) was so influential to the creation of the event and was the impetus behind the case studies and adding value for participants. He was also a Judge for all case-studies in the US event.
It was decided that the Fall event, scheduled for November 2013, would be delayed until March 2014 and then resume its normal schedule for each November.
Nick, we miss you sorely.
