Hi everyone! Recently the Indian ICPC online round was held and 2 teams from my institute were caught in plagiarism and for some weird reason the computer science department of our institute is withdrawing the candidature of ALL the teams from our institute. They have asked all the coaches to withdraw the coaching privilege. So I just want to ask, if there is any way for us to participate in the regionals without a coach or maybe something else that we could do?

While I know the indians regionals are known to be a total mess, I just want to request the non-indians to not laugh over this and suggest some way if they know.

It is a standard rule of ICPC. If more than one team caught in plagarism all the candidates are disqualified at once. You can't change it

    How is this even valid? There will be multiple teams from the institute. The teams capabilities vary from doing plagiarism to putting year long sincere effort to perform well in ICPC. This is totally unfair to shatter the dreams of sincere teams because of the actions of teams for whom ICPC is just a fun. This even provides the power to anyone to just spoil the ICPC careers of all the teams in the institute.

    Excuse me, what? There is no rule in ICPC stating that if one team from an institute cheats, then all the teams from that institute are disqualified.

    In this post, it is clearly mentioned that the CS Department of the institute is deciding to impose this punishment (probably to demonstrate that plagiarism will not be tolerated — as it damages the reputation of the university — context being that OP's university is considered to be the best in India).

    Obviously the "punishment" is unfair to the teams who didn't cheat — and hence the post.

      Not if 1 team is plagarized. If more teams are constantly plagarized then instituite candidature is withdrawn immediately. This is a rule ICPC is following from many years. I guess you don't know it. But it is happening from many years.

        Fk ICPC. This rule (if it exists) goes against the law of land here.

Wow. IIT's administrations are well known for imposing their weird ideologies on students, but this is hilarious.

Say two guys from first year were caught in plagiarism, so we will withdraw the canditaure from all students, even final years, so that this will be a lesson to everyone that we don't tolerate plagiarism here. Lmao, it's like police put the whole city in jail because two guys commited crime, and yeah it will be a lesson to everyone that we don't tolerate crime in this city.

As per FAQ — Gwalior Regional

Q. Can I register without a Coach?

A. No, it is not possible to register a team without a coach, for more information click here.

I think it would be against the rules to circumvent this problem.

Dudeee I don't think you can register without a coach but, you should definitely request your coaches/CS department of your college to revamp their decision!! Only the one's caught must be penalised, they fukin can't snatch this chance from all the deserving people who worked hard for it!!!

This is sooo much against the spirit of ICPC!!

This is not fare. They have to think that in academics too if anyone will cheat in exams that doesn't mean they will take action against all the students.
