Who should participate?
The contest is primarily intended for Indian student programmers, in teams of three, who plan to participate in the Oct. 17th ACM ICPC Asia-Amritapuri Online Contest.
However, others are free to participate as well. 🙂
Why should you participate?
The purpose of this contest is for Indian teams to familiarize themselves with participating in programming contests in general, and the ACM ICPC in particular.
What are the prizes?
The top two teams of three participants from India will have their registration fees for the ACM ICPC Asia-Amritapuri site waived if they qualify for the on-site contest in December!
You may add a coach and a reserve for the ICPC, but the original team composition must remain the same in order to receive the prize.
