Event Description: 

The Stony Brook Competitive Programming Club (CompProg) and Women in Computer Science (WiCS) are organizing a local ACM-style Coding Contest on

        Wednesday, November 18, 2020
        Hosted on HackerRank 

        7:05 -  7:30PM -- warmup

        Zoom accounts must be registered under the stonybrook domain (check this  for help).

Each participant must compete alone, and will get 5-7 algorithmic programming problems to solve in 3 hours.

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.



PRIZES (with a prize by WiCS!):

There will be prizes for the top ten (10) finishers in the selection contest.

Major 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).

Another major prize will be awarded by WiCS:

WiCS Choice Award: to be given to a top contestant (chosen by WiCS) not already receiving an award in the grade categories.
