Hi everyone!

Sponsored by

We are happy to announce that Osijek camp will be returning this Autumn, on August 31-September 8 2024, right before the ICPC World Finals 2024 on 15-20 September 2024 in Astana, Kazakhstan. The camp is hosted by the School of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Osijek and is brought to you by the organizing team of adamant and -is-this-fft-.

The camp is inspired by various competitive programming camps that we attended during our active years in ICPC, and is aimed to help college students prepare for ICPC regional contests and finals. The camp will consist of 7 ICPC-style contests and 2 days off.

Details

Participation fee for onsite participants is 150€ per person. It does not include regular meals, travel or accommodation. Some further details about location, travel and food options can be found on the website.

If you want to participate, but are unable to come onsite, we offer a reduced fee of 100€ per person for online participation. It is also possible to reduce fees individually if you are unable to attend some of the contests. This will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

We support and empathize with those affected by the ongoing war in Ukraine, therefore we offer a 100€ discount for affected individuals and teams affiliated with Ukrainian institutions. In other words, the fees would be 50€ and 0€ per person for onsite and online participation correspondingly.

The expected starting time for the contests is 10am CET. For online participants, it is still a preferred starting time, but we will make accommodations for virtual participation at a later time, whe really necessary.

Most of our contests are originally developed for the camp. A small number of contests may be based on previous contests that have not been released to the general public. If you have seen some problems of a contest before, you can't participate on that day. We will privately contact participants who might be affected.

After the camp, we will have a silence period during which camp materials will not be released to the public. We ask participants not to discuss the problems in public unless they obtained an explicit permission from contest authors.

Participants

If you are interested in participating, please fill the form here.

We ask you to register before August 23 if you want to participate online and before August 16 if you want to participate onsite.

Also, if your university or organization has a lively ICPC community that may be interested in attending the camp, and you have some contacts of people in charge (e.g. coaches) we would highly appreciate if you could share some details in a direct message to me (adamant) or Tähvend (-is-this-fft-). Thanks!

Problemsetters

We'd like to thank and praise the authors of the contests in the camp:

... And others. We would also like to thank Arpa, two times ICPC World Finalist and former Codeforces Contest Coordinator, for his help with reviewing problem proposals. You can find more details about contest rules and technical setup on the website.

Special thanks

Finally, we say special thanks to

Just out of curiosity, can Codeforces be used to conduct paid contests for third party as well? I mean can we charge some money from third parties and host a contest on behalf on them on Codeforces?

    Generally we do not interfere with team compositions. If you need teammates, you should find them yourself (e.g. some people above are looking for teammates). If you don't find teammates, you can of course participate solo, but please note that the camp may be a marginally useful experience for participants from Div. 2, especially when they participate without a team.
