Competitive Programming Sessions starting Saturday (Sep-29)
We will have the first (and introductory) practice session tomorrow on Saturday Sep-29!
Apologies for the late notification! If you can't make it to the meeting see below.
What's the ACM ICPC? It is an annual programming competition against computer science undergrads and first-year grad students from around the world. See the ICPC page for general information. The UCLA ACM student chapter holds weekly practices (usually on Saturdays) and qualifies student teams for the official Southern California Regional competition that takes place in November 10 in Riverside.
Place Boelter 3760
Time 11:00 AM
Agenda for Sep-29:
11:00 AM : Getting acquainted.
11:15 AM : Introduction to Competitive Programming and the ACM ICPC contest.
11:45 AM : Break-out into groups, get computers set up.
12:00PM - 5:00PM: There is a official practice contest put on by ACM, and so you have 5 hours to solve 10 problems.
At UCLA, we are not using this practice to determine qualification and instead using it only for practice. So feel free to treat this as an open-ended practice session.
