The Universities of Alberta, Calgary, and Lethbridge would like to invite you to participate in the open division of the Alberta Collegiate Programming Contest 2023.
The contest starts on November 25 at 11:30am mountain time.
The contest link will be at acpc23.kattis.com. No registration is required for the open division; sometime before the contest starts, there will be a button on the kattis page to sign up. All you need is a kattis account.
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 and language docs. 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 :)
