About

Welcome to the 2013 edition of the Stanford Local Programming Contest!

We will host our competition jointly with the inter-scholactic ICPC North American Online Qualifier again this year, so you will have to opportunity to see how you fare against the best students from other schools. The SLPC will be a five hour contest, and, for the first time in our contest's history, you can compete as an individual or as part of a team. Please indicate your preference when registering. We encourage veterans of the competition to register and compete individually.

As tradition has it, the results of the Stanford Local Programming Contest will be used to select teams of students to represent Stanford at the 2013 ACM Pacific NW Region Programming Contest. If we qualify, one of our teams will be heading to the 2014 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals in Yekaterinburg, Russia!

The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest pits teams of three individuals working on a single computer against a host of problems (typically 8-11) that must be solved in five hours. These problems can generally be solved by careful analysis and application of algorithms taught in undergraduate computer science. Some are quite challenging. For examples, see the problems from previous years of this contest.

All students are welcome to come out an participate in the Stanford Local Programming Contest, whether you are officially eligible to compete in the ACM ICPC or not. We hope to see you there!
