Followings are the basic information:
- Participants in each division will be given $$$6$$$ problems and $$$2.5$$$ hours to solve them.
- All problems have been cooked by me.
- Statements are very short unlike this announcement!
- Problems will have strong samples.
- There will be an interactive problem in this round, so, you should know how to deal with them.
- I hope your internet connection is good as some of the problems will feature awesome animations that I have created using Manim! Yeah, it means the problems will have better explanations.
- In my last contest, only $$$103$$$ div2 participants managed to solve div2C which is not good at all. So this time I have tried to maintain a more balanced difficulty distribution.
- I would like to thank cache for his brilliant coordination of this round.
- amnesiac_dusk tasted the problems(I hope they taste sweet!). I want to thank him particularly for helping me with the preparation of a few problems.
- psychik is in charge of the editorials.
- Needless to say, Xellos did the statement improvements.
