Are you up for the challenge?

24 Hours of Non-Stop Thrill! Insomnia 2015!

Programming and Algorithms Group, and SDSLabs of IIT Roorkee are jointly organizing their flagship programming competition, Insomnia.

This year's problem setters include members of 3Spades, Winner of ACM-ICPC Amritapuri Regional and previous ICPC World Finalists.

The contest will have about 20 odd problems and will last for 24 hours with varying difficulty. Contestants will be expected to submit working code in either C/C++ or Java.

Update : The prize money of the contest is INR 20,000.

Update 2: The contest started!

Update 3: Coming into the last two hours of the contest, we see a fierce battle between the top teams of the leaderboard. Even though Yuhao Du is still leading with 17 solved problems, we have Team Believe at second followed by team confused, both with 16 accepted solutions! Team WontGiveItBack is right at their heels with 15 ACs! It is going to be interesting to see how this ends!

Update 4: So finally we have a winner! Having stayed on the top of the leaderboard right from the start of the contest, Yuhao Du from China has won Insomnia 2015! Kudos, man!

Believe from IIIT Hyderabad comes second, followed by Team confused from Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh. Three different countries in the top-3! The campus winner is team WontGiveItBack. All the winners shall be contacted soon regarding their prize money.

Hi everyone, our team qualified for ACM ICPC world finals 2015. We qualified for WF in 2014 also but did very bad and are focusing on performing better this time. For that, many people advised us to concentrate more on geometry as they can be really tricky and can make quite a good difference in the ranklist.

Can someone post some geometry problems which involve hard concepts which can be useful for our practice? May it be previous year's icpc problems or good problems in some online judges or any good resources to learn hard geometry concepts like blogs or tutorials. Is there any place where we can find such problems?

Thanks in Advance!
