Hola, coders!

On Sunday, January 22 2022, at 16:35UTC+5.5, Programming Club IIT Madras will be hosting an Educational CP Contest and we would like to invite all of you for the same.

It will be a combined unrated round for all divisions. It is a team contest for the official participants; you can participate in a team of 2 or individually.

The contest consists of 10-15 problems [ICPC Style Scoring] to be solved in 150 minutes. The problems will be based on Logic, Data Structures and Algorithms with particular emphasis on Graphs and Dynamic Programming. We believe the problems will be fun and exciting to solve for you guys :D

The contest is of Div.3 level but with challenging problems in the end. It will provide a good range of problems in terms of difficulty (from very easy problems to ones that can challenge experts), and every problem would be thrilling for the participants to solve.

The prizes for the participants:

• Top 3 teams/individuals from IITM will receive exciting prizes.
• Goodies for 2 random teams :)
• Top teams & first solves from IITM and Codeforces will also be acknowledged on this blog.

We’d like to credit,

We are also grateful to CFI, IIT Madras for overseeing the contest conduction and our beloved MikeMirzayanov for Polygon and CodeForces Platforms.

Last but not least, Thank You for participating in the round : )

The contest would be fun and exciting for all the participants.

Good luck, and see you in the standings!

Congratulations to all winners!
