Hi all, UKIEPC 2015 happened last weekend, to a relative success — not without hiccups but just having everything work properly was good enough for us hosting a new subregional for the first time. Previously UKIEPC was run as an extension to the Nordic subregional contest (NCPC).

I've put the contest in the gym for your solving pleasure as 2015 United Kingdom and Ireland Programming Contest (UKIEPC 2015). It's due to start at 15:00 UTC today. The length of the contest is 5 hours and 15 minutes.

Strong teams should still find at least one question interesting.

Update: the re-run is over now. You can find all post-contest data, including slides/solutions/testdata here: http://ukiepc.info/2015
