The official 2010 Stanford Local ACM Programming Contest is now complete! Thanks to all the contestants who participated in this event -- you did incredibly well this year! A special congratulations to our 2010 champion, Chenguang Zhu, who placed first in both the first and second rounds of the SLPC.
We will be sending out invitations for the official Stanford ACM ICPC teams shortly. We also wanted to remind everyone that we will continue to host team programming contests for training (or for fun) every weekend between now and the regional contest on November 13th. You are invited to join us, regardless of whether or not you are on one of the ACM ICPC teams. Please contact the organizers if you are interested.
The problem set, final scoreboard, judge data, and solutions for both contests can be found here:
Once again, Stanford will be hosting a local programming contest to select the students who will represent Stanford at the 2010 ACM Pacific NW Region Programming Contest, and hopefully, at the 2011 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt!
The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest pits teams of three individuals working on a single computer against a host of problems (typically 7-10) 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.
The Stanford Local ACM Programming Contest will be an individual contest (students compete as individuals, and not on teams) lasting 4 hours. Like last year, we will be using the results of not one, but two individual contests to select and form teams to represent Stanford at the regional contest. The best contestants in the local contest will be invited to participate in a second match, and the results of both individual contests will be used to group students into two Stanford teams.
The top three teams at the regional contest qualify for the 2011 World Finals to be held in late February. The winning students not only bring fame and glory to their university, but also win scholarships and other prizes.
