Regional Contest Rules

Adapted for the local site, these rules conform to the official ICPC Regional Rules. All participants (contestants and coaches) must read and follow rigorously the contest rules in order to achieve a fair competition.

  • A calculator and any electronic devices or storages such as mobile phones, CD, DVD, USB flash drive, MP3 player, iPod, iPad, electronic dictionary are NOT permitted. However, each contestant is allowed to bring one paper dictionary and some personal and stationary items such as pen, pencil, ruler into the contest room. Blank paper will be provided at each team.

  • A team can bring up to 3 identical copies of Team Reference Document which is defined as follows:
    Team Reference Document consists of legal or A4-size papers containing notes and/or printed pages (single-sided or double-sided). The total number of pages of the document must not exceed 25 pages. All pages must be numbered and the team name and university must appear at the header of every page. All of the copies of Team Reference Document and other permitted items will be reviewed by inspector and left at team's workstation on the first day (practice session) to be used in the contest session on the next day.

  • All teams will use the same equipment and software environment as provided by the organizer. No substitution of keyboards or other hardware will be allowed for the competition. The provided keyboard has a standard QWERTY keyboard layout.

  • All contestants must wear the contestant T-Shirt and the ID badge (provided on-site) throughout the contest. Only 3 contestants per team are allowed to get into the contest room.

  • At least 10 problems will be posted. So far as possible, problems avoid dependence on detailed knowledge of a particular applications area or particular contest language. Of these problems at least two will be solvable by a second-year computer science student and the rest will determine the winner.

  • Solutions to the contest problems submitted for judging are called runs. Each run is judged as accepted (Yes) or rejected (No) by the judges, and the team is notified of the results within a few minutes after the reception of the run.

  • A team should stay logged-in to the PC2 system throughout the contest time with their own account. Logging-in as another team is considered as a cheat.

  • Team should inform the volunteers if they do not get reply from the judges within 15 minutes after submission. Volunteers will report that to the judges. Teams should also notify the volunteers if any problem concerning PC2 system (disconnection, forgotten password, program freezing, ...) occurs. This sort of complains will not be taken into consideration later.

  • Notification of rejected or accepted runs to the contestant teams will not be suspended at the last one hour of the contest time but to keep the final result secret the displayed scoreboard will not be updated at last one hour.

  • A contestant may submit a clarification request to judges. If the judges agree that an ambiguity error exists, a clarification will be issued to all contestants. A trivial request may be not responded.

  • Contestants are not to converse with anyone except members of their team and personnel designated by the organizing committee. Systems support staff may advise contestants on system-related problems such as explaining system error messages.

  • A team may be disqualified by the Contest Committee for any cheat or attempt of cheat. A team may also disqualified for any activity that jeopardizes the contest such as dislodging extension cords, unauthorized modification of contest materials, or distracting behavior.

  • While the contest is scheduled for a particular time length (5 hours), the judges have the authority to alter the length of the contest in the event of unforeseen difficulties. Should the contest duration be altered, every attempt will be made to notify contestants in a timely and uniform manner.

  • With the help of volunteers the contestants can have printout of their program listings for debugging purposes. Each team has printing quota of 30 pages.

Scoring and Ranking
  • A problem is solved when it is accepted by the judges. The judges are solely responsible for accepting or rejecting submitted runs.

  • The total time of a team is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submittal of the accepted run plus 20 penalty minutes for every rejected run for that problem regardless of submittal time. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved.

  • Teams are ranked according to the most problems solved. For the purposes of awards, or in determining qualifier(s) for the World Finals, teams who solve the same number of problems are ranked by least total time. In case of equal total time, the less time of the latest problem solved of each team (not including penalty time for that problem) will determine the higher ranked team. If still equal, the time of next-latest problem(s) will be considered.

  • During the contest the live scoreboard (containing the number of problems solved of each team and the current ranking) will be shown to the people outside the contest rooms. The contestants and coaches can also have an access to the live scoreboard during the contest. However, the scoreboard will be frozen at about 1 hour before the end of the contest in order to keep the final results secret.

  • Any complains about the contest must be made to the Contest Committee and Judges with 30 minutes after the contest.

  • In consultation with the judges, the Contest Director determines the winners of the contest. The contest director and judges are empowered to adjust for or adjudicate unforeseen events and conditions. Their decisions are final.

  • The official contest result and ranking will be announced after the contest in the closing ceremony.
