The problems for this round were prepared by MicGor, Grzmot, Okrut and me.

We would like to thank everyone who made this round possible:

We hope you will enjoy the problem set! Good luck!

UPD: Score distribution:

  • Div 1: $$$500$$$ $$$-$$$ $$$1250$$$ $$$-$$$ $$$2000$$$ $$$-$$$ $$$2500$$$ $$$-$$$ $$$3000$$$ $$$-$$$ $$$3500$$$

Below is a message for you from MikeMirzayanov:


With this round, we want to say thank you to Algo Muse for the significant contribution and support!

Algo Muse is an educational site that conducts online algorithmic contests in pen-and-paper style (no coding). It was originally started to help students prepare for theory qualifiers for graduate admissions. At present, the problems have a broader appeal, though occasionally an odd problem may require knowledge of linear algebra, probability, or group theory. The website is maintained by former students of IIT Bombay. To find out more, visit their website or their twitter account.

Hello, Codeforces!


We are thrilled to announce a new SIT STAR Contest by the Schaffhausen Institute of Technology in Switzerland. The winners will have a chance to get a fully-funded Master’s scholarship in Computer Science and Software Engineering.

What is the SIT STAR Contest?

The goal of the SIT STAR Contest is to promote interest in the field of Computer Science and Software Engineering, give students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of programming, and be considered for a fully-funded graduate scholarship. You can apply to the contest here!

The SIT STAR Contest consists of:

  1. June 1-7, 2020 | Practice: To familiarize yourself with the testing environment, you will first be granted access to a practice round. You can practice any time from 1st to 7th June 2020. This is an optional step but we highly recommend to take part in it. The results of this round won’t affect the final score.
  2. June 17, 2020 | SIT STAR Contest: The final round will take place on 17th June. The participants will be given 4 hours to complete it.
  3. June — July, 2020 | Interviews and Winners announcement: Top participants with the highest scores will be invited for the interviews with the professors from the Schaffhausen Institute of Technology.

The SIT STAR Contest will include 8-12 problems of various levels of difficulty in algorithmic programming.

Hi everyone!

I would like to invite you to my fourth Codeforces Round, which I have made with my friends FastestFinger and TheOneYouWant. In terms of problems, it is my favorite among all my rounds.

With that said, I bring to your attention our new Codeforces Round #646 (Div. 2) that will take place on 31.05.2020 17:35 (Московское время). If your rating is less than 2100, this round will be rated for you; otherwise, you can participate out of competition.

I would really like to thank:

You will be given 6 problems and <
