Programming Club, IIT Indore is proud to announce IIT Indore's inaugural Programming Fest, Euristica '18, sponsored by Arcesium. The event was realised thanks to the amazing amounts of effort put in by our team across several weeks.

The domain of events we will be organising spans across Competitive Programming, Application Development, Cyber Security and Machine Learning. Prizes netting ₹300K is up for grabs as well!

The fest kicks off on Friday, 23rd March 2018, and will continue until Sunday, 8th April 2018. We've put lots of love and effort into making the problem statements of every contest, and we hope that you enjoy solving them as much as we enjoyed making them :)

The events are planned as follows:-

  • Divide By Zero 6.0 — Euristica's flagship short programming contest
  • Hackathon — A social coding event to build a new software under the to-be-announced broad themes. Each team can consist of a maximum of 4 people. (Platform — Hackerearth)
  • Capture the Flag — A Capture the Flag Competition held by Byte Bandits, IIT Indore’s academic CTF team. The team size for the CTF should be a maximum 4 people.
  • Machine Learning Codesprint — Participants will be given real world Machine Learning problems, and will have to train their computers to understand and model the data, and predict target outputs corresponding to unseen inputs. (Platform — Hackerearth)
  • Code Mélange IV — A long algorithmic competitive programming contest which will test your logical, analytical and algorithmic skills. (Platform — Codechef)
  • Code Golf 4.0 — A coding contest in which, the shorter you code, the better you score. (Platform — Hackerrank)
  • Surprise Language IV — A programming contest in which the language will be a secret, revealed only 15 minutes before the contest. We will be releasing a list of languages 3 days before the contest. (Platform — Hackerrank)
  • Hack the Code — A programming contest which tests your debugging skills by correcting/debugging the given code for the failing test case(s). (Platform — Hackerrank)
  • Fool You! — A unique programming contest, in which thinking for the solution might still be easier than understanding the problem ! (Platform — Hackerrank)
  • SOH CAH TOA — A short-duration mathematical programming contest focusing on number theory, probability, combinatorics, modular arithmetic and other interesting math topics. (Platform — Codechef)

Please put up registration links for these contests. I was only able to find the link for Code Melange III on CodeChef website.

Wasn't able to find registration links for the other HackerRank and CodeChef contests.

I'm interested in Divide by Zero and SOH CAH TOA.

Please provide the links.
