Hello Codeforces!

The Algorithms and Coding Club, IIT Delhi (ANCC) in collaboration with Tryst, IIT Delhi, will host LOCKOUT and would like to invite you all for the same.

Lockout is a bracket tournament where contenders will solve CP problems to earn a higher score and secure their position in the next round. Participants will receive a set of problems to solve within a fixed time frame, with each problem carrying a set number of points. The first participant to solve a problem earns the points. Before the main event, a preliminary round will be held, and the top 16 participants will advance to the tournament.

The Lockout Prelims will be hosted on the Codeforces platform. The contest will serve as an online preliminary round for an on-site final. It will be an ICPC style 2 hour long contest. The top 16 participants with the highest scores will proceed to the onsite tournament.
