Hello everyone!

I would like to invite you to participate in Hackerearth June Circuits 2017. It's a long contest that will start on June 16, 2017, 21:00 IST (check your timezone). The contest will run for 9 days.

The problemset consists of 7 traditional algorithmic tasks and 1 approximate problem. For traditional algorithmic tasks, you will receive points for every test case your solution passes — so you can get some points with partial solutions as well. For the approximation task, your score depends on the best solution in the contest so far. Check contest page for more details about in-contest schedule and rules.

I'm the tester of the problemset you'll have to work on — thanks to jtnydv25, saatwik27, harshil, zscoder, Arunnsit for preparing these tasks.

As usual, there will be some prizes for the top five competitors:

  1. $100 Amazon gift card + HE t-shirt.
  2. $75 Amazon gift card + HE t-shirt.
  3. $50 Amazon gift card + HE t-shirt.
  4. HE t-shirt.
  5. HE t-shirt.

Good luck to everyone, and I hope to see you at the contest :)

Since no one is replying on the problem's page anymore, I thought about asking here: For the approximation problem (The Grid Organizer) will there be new test cases added after the contest ends? If yes, then please make this information available ASAP. Since the problem is configured to get a score of 0 if any test case fails, it's important to make our solutions more "robust" than usual in case new test cases will be added after the contest (e.g. in order to make sure we avoid any chance of TLE, etc.).
