Sept. 20 - ACM-style Coding Contest

The Department of Computer Science is organizing a local ACM-style Coding Contest on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 in Room 2129 of Old Computer Science Building. The goal of the event is to identify top candidates for our ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) teams who will participate in the Greater New York Regional Contest for a slot in the ACM World Finals 2017 (to be held in May, 2017). 

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 schedule for the night includes:


        7:00 -  7:30PM -- warmup
        7:30 - 10:30PM -- competition

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).

Please register by Sep 18 (Sunday) at:
