The final round of IIOT took place last weekend and we would like to thank all the teams who participated. The problems were harder than usual, the hardest being police7, which only had 2 teams get a full score on it. In the onsite contest, calculator, colorpoints, police7 and prankster were not solved completely by any team.

Now, on with the top 5 teams:

  • In the fifth place, team "DB_Fanclub ><", from India, with 634 points.
  • In the fourth place, team "aa bb", from Italy, with 700 points.
  • In the third place, team "Alon Tanay", from Israel, with 735.83 points.
  • In the second place, team "pave ment", from Singapore, with 744.1 points.

And finally "Bushido Staszic", from Poland, came first with a full score. Congratulations to all!
