Hello Codeforces! TeamsCode is excited to announce the TeamsCode Spring 2023 Virtual Programming Contest! It will take place on April 2nd, 2023 at 9:45 AM PST.

Teams of up to 4 members will have 3 hours to solve around 10 problems. There are two divisions: Novice and Advanced, so no matter what skill level you are, there is a place for you.

The guest speaker events will feature Dr. Subho Majumdar, a technical leader in applied trustworthy machine learning who believes in a community-centric approach to data-driven decision-making, and Dr. Jane Bae, an Assistant Professor of Aerospace at the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech. She received her Ph.D. in Computational and Mathematical Engineering from Stanford University in 2018. She was a postdoctoral fellow in the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at Caltech and the Institute for Applied Computational Science at Harvard University before joining the Caltech faculty. Her main research focuses on computational fluid mechanics, in particular on modeling and control of wall-bounded turbulence.

The schedule is shown below:

Our prize pool for winners of the novice and advanced divisions is over $3,000! Only pre-college participants are eligible for placement prizes; however, anyone may participate in the contest. The prizes include Wolfram|Alpha subscriptions, Apple Airpods, HyperX Gaming products, Amazon gift cards, Beats by Dr. Dre, Logitech G PRO Gaming Keyboard, and more! Placement prizes are given to each team member (ex: everyone on the 1st place advanced team will receive $100, HyperX Headset, HyperX Cloud Buds, and Wolfram Alpha subscriptions).

      Oh, cool! But looks like registration is closed already :(
      Why there wasn't any single word about registration deadline in the announcement, BTW?
