Date and Time: Saturday, 10 September 2016, 1-6PM SGT (end of Week 05).
Venue: COM1-B-PL2 (capacity 46).
Format: Individual selection contest to determine individual coder rankings, using ICPC rules (e.g. 25 pages hardcopy reference material), but individual instead of team of three.
Problems are set by Dr Steven Halim with help of two senior two times ex NUS ACM ICPC world finalists: Jonathan Irvin Gunawan and Nathan Azaria.
As we do not host ACM ICPC Singapore this year, we will go to more Asian PP sites this year, see below.
This selection contest has been concluded.
The list of selected contestants can be found here.
Past and the newly selected NUS ACM ICPC team members are given one-year 24/7 access to NUS ACM ICPC Lab (COM2-2-15).
The actual plan below are more or less confirmed and may only change a bit if there is/are suprising change(s) of contest date(s) by Asian PP Regional Contest Directors.
Basically, the rationale for choosing these sites are:
The details for future trainings (usually in December, i.e. December 2016) for next year's 20-th NOI (Saturday, 18 March 2017) are not available yet.
At the time of writing (05 September 2016), NUS SoC is busy with ACM ICPC (see above).
