Dear Codeforces,

I am pleased to invite you to participate in CodeSprint LA 2021, UCLA ACM-ICPC's annual beginner-friendly algorithms contest, planned for Saturday, May 22, 2021, 10am — 5pm PDT!

The codesprintla.com website is now live, click here for more details and registration. Or you can go straight to registration at codesprintla.com/register. Registration has been extended to Wednesday, May 19, 2021, at 11:59PM PDT!

This year we are planning (subject to change):

  • 2hr individual round and 3hr team round (3 members per team) with ICPC scoring
  • Beginner (div. 3-4) and Open (div. 1-2) divisions
  • Prize pools of $900 USD for UCLA participants in the Beginner Division and $1000 USD for all participants in the Open Division, sponsored by Jane Street

Last year's contest had over 150 participants; problems are available on Kattis at https://codesprintla20-team.kattis.com/standings and https://codesprintla20-individual.kattis.com/standings. This year's Open division should be much more challenging than last year's contest, while this year's Beginner division will be somewhat easier.

I would like to thank rishisankar, summertony717, nikilrselvam, lucasxia01, Hresvelg, arihant72600, wildplum, entrohpy, Enmi and many others for help with problem writing, testsolving, and contest organization.
