Good news about Moscow Pre-Finals Workshop 2020!

Due to the difficult epidemiological situation in the world, and also taking into account the depreciation of the ruble against the dollar, we decided to recalculate the cost of participation for teams from non-EAEU countries. Thus, the current cost of participation for one non-EAEU team is $690.

Also, we updated Moscow Pre-Finals Workshop 2020 discount system:

  • Yandex increases the quota for free participation in the Workshop for teams from the Northern Eurasia region. 20 teams will be chosen based on the results of the third stage (four rounds) of OpenCup in Division A — opencup.ru. The fourth and final round will take place this Sunday, March 29.
  • All ICPC 2020 finalists receive a 50% discount.
  • Discounts by Moscow Workshops remain the same: 80, 60, 40 and 20 percent discount respectively for the first four teams in the standings based on the results of the third stage (four rounds) of OpenCup in Division B. Remember about OpenCup round on March 29!
  • On April 4 at 11:00 will be held a four-hour “A -” level contest (entire div.B and lower half of the div.A ranking) to distribute discounts to sixteen teams. ICPC 2020 finalists and teams that received prizes from Yandex can participate only out of the competition. Thus, 16 more teams will receive a 50% discount on participation in the Moscow Pre-Finals Workshop 2020.

Discounts from different list items cannot be summarized. Only teams that meet the basic ICPC eligibility requirements in this or future seasons can apply for discounts (ICPC veterans cannot apply for discounts).

More details about the new discounts: https://bit.ly/2JhR724
