The LexMACS (Lexington Mathematical CS) club is proud to announce our third annual Lexington Informatics Tournament 2022! The contest window lasts from July 21 — July 25 EDT, and participants can begin their 3 hours window at any time. If you are interested, please visit our website at https://lit.lhsmathcs.org/. Once you register, you can see all the past problems on the contest page. Some of our problem-setters include codetiger927, eggag32, SuperJ6, and eyangch. Special thanks to testers Snow-Flower, Tlatoani, fishy15, fivefourthreeone as well!
LIT consists of two separate rounds: Standard and CTF. Teams may participate and win prizes in both. The Standard round is similar to USACO and CodeForces, where you are given 8 algorithm problems and 3 hours to solve, with difficulties ranging from Div3 to Div1. The CTF round will rely on contestants’ knowledge of computer security and general problem-solving skills to complete challenges and locate a "flag" for each.
Participants may form teams of up to 3 members! Everyone is welcome to participate in the contest regardless of nationality and age. While our prizes mainly target high school and middles school students (hundreds of dollars in cash!), we have a special award for post-HS teams as well this year <3!
Our current prize pool is worth more than $33,000 this year! In addition, ALL PARTICIPANTS will be able to win 1 month of Replit hacker, and the top 30 individuals will receive the Wolfram Award of 1 year of Wolfram|One Personal Edition and 1 year subscription to Wolfram|Alpha Pro (worth $375)
If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to DM the organizers in the Discord Server, or email us at [email protected].
Hope to see you soon!
