The Department of Computer Science is organizing a local ACM-style Coding Contest on

Tuesday, September 20, 2016
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.

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).

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 2017 (to be held in May, 2017).

Please register by Sep 18 (Sunday) at:
