The official practice time will be on Friday evening, 7:00-9:00. Practice will be held at the contest Location. The regional judges will operate their servers and contestants will be given a few practice problems that parallel the format of the actual problems on Saturday. All teams are strongly encouraged to attend. This gives you a chance to be familiar with the contest, systems, tools and debugging techniques prior to the contest.

There will be NO official practice time on Saturday before the contest. The contest runs from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM, and is sometimes slightly extended for fairness purposes. Teams are recommended to wear contest shirts during the competition if they get one.


Each team will get one Linux machine with the following configuration.

Ubuntu 22.04
vi/vim, gvim, emacs, gedit, geany, kate
Eclipse, IntelliJ, CLion (may require a JetBrains account), PyCharm, Code::Blocks, Visual Studio Code

Guests staying Friday night can book at one of the many hotels near campus. There is not a specific hotel that we recommend, nor are there rooms blocked or a special rate for the contest.


You may bring your own food/beverages/snacks if you wish. Please note there is no food allowed in the competition rooms.

If you have special dietary needs, please let us know. We will do our best to meet these requests and will let you know what to expect. We already have vegetarian options planned.
