Hello, Codeforces!

UTPC, the competitive programming organization at the University of Texas at Austin, is happy to invite you to participate in the 2024 edition of the UT Open (UTOPC) which will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at 1:00PM UTC-5 (CDT).

You will be given 10-12 problems (not necessarily ordered by difficulty) and 5 hours to solve them, with standard ICPC scoring. There will be a wide range of difficulties -- anyone is welcome to participate! This is a team contest, meaning that you are allowed to compete in teams of up to 3 members (it is totally acceptable to compete without teammates as well). This is (of course) not an official Codeforces round, and is thus unrated.

Prizes will be available to students competing in person in Austin (at the Gates-Dell Complex), and further prize information is TBD.

The problems were prepared and tested by sg2themax, tn757, jxin31415, blueberryJam, isaac18b, mwen, zekigurbuz, nwx, fishy15, DylanSmith, and Daveeed.

And also a huge thanks to chickencode and speedycatfish for planning logistics and to B-1168 for help with testing problems!

We would like to thank:

  • evouga2 and gpdowning for being great resources and coaches for the UT Austin ICPC teams,

  • Jane Street, our generous sponsor,

  • MikeMirzayanov for the great platforms Codeforces and Polygon,

  • and all of you, for participating!

The contest is in the Gym tab here on Codeforces. Good luck and have fun!
