The Universities of Alberta, Calgary, and Lethbridge would like to invite you to participate in the open division of the Alberta Collegiate Programming Contest 2022.
The contest starts on November 26 at 11:30am mountain time.
The contest link will be at acpc22open.kattis.com. It currently returns a 404, but it will hopefully become active soon. When it is active, there will be a "Join the Contest" button or something similar that one can use to register.
The format for teams competing in person is a team-of-<=3 five-hour contest with one computer and no access to external materials other than a physical team reference document. While we encourage those participating in the open division to replicate these conditions as closely as possible (since this is what the contest was designed for), we recognize this may not be possible or wanted for some. Teams/individuals competing in open division are not bound by the same rules (i.e. one-pc, no online reference) as those competing in-person. Note that there are no prizes for the open division.
The difficulty of the contest will be comparable to some of the easier NA ICPC regionals such as rocky mountain regional. To get a better idea of the expected difficulty, you can view the problems from last year.
For updates and to chat with other participants, feel free to join the Alberta Competitive Programming discord server.
We hope you participate in and enjoy the contest :)
Just registered with WyattWismer and ed1d1a8d. Excited for the challenge.
the contest starts at a very awkward time for south-asian countries
Well that is unfortunate, but also a byproduct of being held a very long distance away. Contests from South Asian countries are often at an awkward time for North America :)
The problems will hopefully make their way to open Kattis sometime soonish after the contest ends, so if you are unavailable during the actual contest, you could virtual it later.
yeah sure but will miss the real time fun
Official standings — sorry the finalizing feature is not working properly at the moment!
I think you should hide this under a spoiler as the open contest hasn't started yet :(
The open contest has already finished.
Oops my bad. I got the date wrong :(
