Intel Code Challenge Elimination Round will take place on Saturday, 1 October 17:05 MSK. Only russian citizens from 18 to 27 years old can officially participate in this competition.
However, for all other users of the Codeforces it will be an usual round. The round will be rated and both divisions can participate.
There will be 6 problems and 2 hours to solve them. Scoring distribution will be announced closer to the start of the round.
The problems were prepared by me — Vladislav Epifanov (vepifanov). I want to say thanks to Alexey Shmelev (I_Remember_Olya_ashmelev), Alexander Fetisov (AlexFetisov) and Vladislav Isenbaev (winger) for testing the problems, coordinator of the Codeforces Gleb Evstropov (GlebsHP) for his help with the contest preparation, and Mike Mirzayanov (MikeMirzayanov) for the Codeforces and Polygon systems.
UPD. Scoring: 500-500-1000-1500-2000-2500.
I must apologies for the problem C. We decided to simplify it in the last moment, and it turned out, that the simplified version of it already appeared on another online judge.
Anyway, I hope that the second round will be better than the first one.
Editorial for this round will be published on Sunday, 2 October.
