Prof. Rezaul Chowdhury is happy to announce the CS department is holding a local ACM-style Coding Contest

Tuesday, September 26, 2017
Room 2129 of Old Computer Science Building
7:00 - 7:30PM -- warmup
7:30 - 10:30PM -- competition

Each participant must compete alone (this is not a team contest), and will get 5-7 algorithmic problems to solve within the given time limit.

The goal is to identify the top candidates for our ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest(ICPC) teams, which will participate in the Greater New York Regional Contest for a slot in the ACM World Finals 2018 (to be held in April 2018 in Beijing, China).

SPONSOR: The event will be sponsored by Google. There will be SWAG, pizzas, and prizes.

PRIZES: Prizes will be awarded to the top finisher in each of the three categories:

(1) Juniors (for first- and second-year undergrads),
(2) Seniors (for third- and fourth-year undergrads), and
(3) Grads (for first- and second-year graduate students).

REGISTRATION: Please register by Sep 24 (Sunday) at https://goo.gl/forms/exW0OZghCq5VjQaE3.

We have limited seating capacity. So, please register early.
