The results of the contest will be announced here and we will also discuss solutions to the problems.
The Faculty Club is located at 11435 Saskatchewan Dr NW. We will be upstairs. Feel free to hang your coat on the rack to the left as soon as you enter and come on up!
The official practice time will be on Friday after dinner. Practice will be held at 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 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and is sometimes slightly extended for fairness purposes. Teams are recommended to wear contest shirts during the competition if they get one.
See here for a pamphlet that includes the machines available on site, a summary of the editors and compilers/interpreters that will be available.
