Syrian Collegiate Programming Contest 2014 (SCPC) was held as a multisite contest in both Damascus and Latakia between 21st and 23rd of September , I think it's the first ACM contest which take place in two sites in two different cities!
Forty four teams from eleven universities participated in the contest beside three other unofficial teams
I've uploaded the contest to GYM and I invite you to participate in this contest which I choosed this time for it , I hope I chose the time which suits as many coders as possible.
most problems may be easy for yellow and red coders but at least one problem will interest you.
it's the first time that I upload a contest to GYM so I hope everything is technically ok!
if you have coach rights please don't enter the contest before it starts.
By the way, today is the third day of Eid al-adha festival so Happy feast to all Muslims :D
UPD: Contest is finished , thanks for participation and Cogratulations to winners.
problem H is a traditional dynamic programming but allowing negative values tricked a lot of contestants because they didn't initialize the corner values of dp to -INF (i.e dp[i]=-INF and dp[i]=-INF)
problem I is very simple implementation problem the fault of many participants is not considering the case when there's no 5 different letters in the song.
