AAK's blog

By AAK, 11 days ago, In English

Creating this blog as I wasn't able to find any discussion related to the upcoming Indian ICPC prelims/regionals. As of now, the following regions have been announced:

1. Amritapuri:
  • Registration deadline: August 19, 2022
  • Date of Preliminary Round : August 21, 2022 (online)
  • Date of Regionals : September 17/18, 2022 (onsite)
  • Registration fees: INR 600 (prelims) + INR 2650 (regionals)
  • Link: https://www.amrita.edu/events/icpc-2022/
2. Kanpur:
  • Registration deadline: August 20, 2022 (payment deadline — August 21, 2022)
  • Date of Preliminary Round : August 31, 2022 (online)
  • Date of Regionals : September 24/25, 2022 (onsite)
  • Registration fees: INR 1000 (prelims) + INR 4000 (regionals)
  • Link: https://kanpur.indiaicpc.in/

Similar to previous years, each team can participate in two regionals. I tried really hard, but was not able to find anything specific about the other regions (Gwalior-Pune/Kharagpur) apart from just their listing on the icpc website. Any news on the same?

Amritapuri is allowing us to register here. Not sure if this is intended but this seems to be for 2022-23 season.
Shouldn't we be registering for 2021-22?

    Yeah I had the same question. The last ICPC we gave was 2020-21, so technically this should be 2021-22 right?

      Yes. And I hope the organizing bodies start taking this seriously. There isn't much time left.

    I don't want to set off any alarm bells, but my best guess is that it may be skipped :/ I did mail Amritapuri regarding the same but haven't gotten any response yet.

    There have been no updates on the ICPC site about regionals rules for 2022 (it says that it would be updated by September here). I sent ICPC Baylor an email a couple of days ago about eligibility of 2022 grads, and this is what I got:

    Around a week back, they sent emails with this poster. Also they've mentioned double site regionals, not sure if this would mean regionals in both Amritapuri and Bengaluru (or some other place).

Which year do we have to select 2021-22 or 2022-23, because last year Amritapuri contest was for 2020-21. So this year, the round is for 2021-22 or 2022-23?

    Did you find out which year we're supposed to select? I'm still confused, and because of this I'm not able to create the team.

    I also saw this just now, it's really weird. Technically, Dhaka is doing the right thing. The 2021-22 page of Amritapuri and Kanpur is blank, does that imply that 2021-22 regionals have been skipped?

The registration for the Amritapuri Regionals site seems to have closed on the 2nd of August itself and is not allowing further registrations. Is anyone else also facing the same issue? (Since the official amritapuri website https://www.amrita.edu/events/icpc-2022/ says the registration closes on 19th August.)

    We faced a similar issue, but found a roundabout.
    You can register from here. Just click on "register" and you will be taken to the team creation page. We managed to do it that way.

Hi! During registration for ICPC Asia Amritapuri regional 2022 it is asking for a last name as mandatory field and only accepting alphabets, so what should I write in this field as I don't have any last name in official documents? Waiting for the reply! Thank you

Have the registrations for Amritapuri ended as of now (August 6)? It doesn't show on the Baylor Site anymore, but the deadline was August 19. Can someone please clarify? Thanks.

After team creation, my team shows predicted ineligible; the log screenshot is attached here. All my team members have exact same university name in the profile and the team's university is also the same.

What can be the reason for this and how to resolve it?

    So basically in your registration last year you had a different university name and this year it's different. Ask your mentor who's registering to do it with same university name.

    It is more likely that someone else (from another university) has registered your email under their team. You need to see in your profile if there is any invites pending. Also see which university your coach is registered under.

    There have been instances when there were multiple entries for same university!

    I faced the same issue. To solve this, we used new email ids for registration, and it worked. We are predicted eligible as of now.

There was a mention of "No team member on the qualifying team may have competed as a contestant in two previous ICPC World Finals." in ICPC Regional Rules. But there are many examples of the same person qualifying for two consecutive WF. Can anyone please clarify this?

    No team member on the qualifying team may have competed as a contestant in two previous ICPC World Finals

    It means that your team should not have a member who already participated in two world finals before (Not necessarily consecutive).

    If you already been to two world finals You cannot participate in third one.

    For example tourist participated in world finals 2013 and 2015 so now he cannot participate in ICPC WF for third time

Okay so there are a lot of confusions at this point. Please clear any if you can:

  1. We should technically select 2021-22 as the year while registering for ICPC as that is the latest year, why is 2022-23 available as well?

  2. Why is the registration of ICPC Amritapuri site open under 2021-22 but ICPC Kanpur site open under 2022-23?

  3. Last year the count of teams who had registered for ICPC Amritapuri were clearly shown on the page. Moreover there was also a list of teams available. This year, the count was 1 when ICPC Amritapuri was under the year 2022-23, but now its 0 when its under 2021-22. Is the count not increasing or are the teams unable to register on the site?

  4. ICPC Amritapuri prelims was announced to be held on 21st August this year (We got a mail regarding the same). Since there are only 2 weeks left, is it possible that they might postpone the round since the registration is so unclear?

I am tagging Ashishgup here as he was looking for problemsetters for ICPC India. Can you please look into these questions and clarify it for us at the earliest if you know something?

    I can clarify for Amritapuri. Please register under year 2021-22. They updated it as other regionals were also under the same year. For more details, read here — https://www.amrita.edu/events/icpc-2021/

    For Kanpur, try mailing them for a clarification.

    IMO, teams count etc starts showing up once the team is accepted. There maybe many teams applied but they might not have started accepting yet.

    Amritapuri online round date is still same. No plan to postpone as of now!
