NUS ICPC World Finals 2016 traveling expenses are donated by Garena.
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 reference material), but individual instead of team of three.
The NUS best coder after this individual contest will get to choose two other teammates of his/her liking to best complement him/her as NUS team 1.
Then these three students are removed from the list.
The next best not-chosen NUS coder will continue this process, and so on, until we have NUS team 6 (a total of 6x3 = 18 students).
As we do not host ACM ICPC Singapore this year, we will go to more Asian PP sites this year.
Senior/no-longer-eligible ex NUS ACM ICPC team members can help contribute interesting medium-hard ICPC-style problems for this selection contest.
Eligible NUS students who are planning to be in NUS ACM ICPC team in AY 2016/2017 have to self-practice before this individual selection contest.
Past and the newly selected NUS ACM ICPC team members will be given one-year 24/7 access to NUS ACM ICPC Lab (COM2-2-15).
The current list of known participants of this selection contest can be found here.
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:

We definitely have to give a miss this year:
