ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest

In the fall of each year, over six thousand student programmer teams compete in regional contests for a chance to advance to the World Finals of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. The Pacific Region encompasses the Pacific Northwest US, Alaska, Hawaii, and British Columbia and attracts over eighty teams from over three dozen schools. The contest is held simultaneously at six separate sites. On November 5, 2011, the University of Oregon will again be one of the contest sites, hosted by UO Computer and Information Science and UO Information Services. Each team in the contest consists of three students. The contest runs for five hours, during which a team attempts to solve as many problems as possible. Contest problems are story problems, and the solution is a computer program that must produce output according to the input data and the requirements as stated in the problem. This output must be exactly correct and the program must execute quickly. Problems are typically “real world” computing tasks and often more difficult to solve than they appear. Details

Green Driver, Inc. is proud to announce our first annual programming contest!

We’ll provide details on the problem to be solved on Friday, November 18. You’ll have three days to solve it, and then your code will compete one-on-one against the other submissions. The total prize pool will be up to $7500: $1500 plus $50 for each participant. First place will receive 70% of the pool, and second and third will get 20% and 10%, respectively. The event is open to anyone currently living in Oregon. Sign up before the contest starts (noon on November 18), by sending an email to contest-register@imagreendriver.com with your name and mailing address. For more details go to www.imagreendriver.com/contest.php.
