Are you preparing for ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) ?
As we all know that ICPC is about to start. I am glad to invite all the college students to take part in HackerEarth Collegiate Cup on Sep 03, 10:00 AM IST. It will add up in the practice for ACM-ICPC. This is a team contest where teams must consist of exactly 3 members and all members must be enrolled in a degree program at the same institution.
The contest will have 4 rounds:

B. First Elimination: It will be an online contest of 3 hours having 5 problems. Top 3 teams from each institution who have solved at least one problem will move to the next round.
C. Second Elimination: It will be an online contest of 5 hours having 10 problems. Top 15 Indian teams each from different college will qualify for the final onsite round and top 15 Global teams each from different college will be eligible for prizes in the online Mirror round.
D1. Final Round (Onsite): This will be an onsite round in which the 15 Indian teams selected from second elimination will participate. It will be a 5 hours contest having 12 problems.
