The ACM-ICPC International Collegiate Programming Contest

November 5, 2016 Contest

We will be using the Kattis web site to manage our contest. Because this is not an official contest we will need to use the site in a difference way.

The Link below will take you to a list of links to problems on the Kattis site. You will to try to solve as many of these as possible, as soon as possible. You can use Netbeans (or another development platform of your choice) on the lab computers to develop and test a solution. Then submit it to Kattis for checking and acceptance. If it is accepted, email the solution, along with screenshot of the acceptance screen to Professor Skon at The teams will be ranked by the following criteria:

Each correct submission will get a score in two halves

  • The first half is the 300 points.
  • The second half is the total number of minutes in the competition (300) minus the number of minutes it took you to complete the problem.
  • I.e., if it took 2 hours to complete a problem, the formula for its score is:
    300 + (300-120) = 480 points.
So the total score will be the sum of the scores for the team (or person).

Contest Problem List

ACM Regional Programming Contest

Kattis Practice Site

  • You should practice for the contest at an open contest site:
    • Go to the site
    • Create an account or log in with one of the socal apps
    • Select a problem, write the code, and submit the program source file and wait while it is Judged.
    • You will receive a ranking.
    • There are language specific instructions for the site here: Kattis Help.
      You will want to use C++, Java, or Python to be ready for the regional contest.
    • Please note that you will be submitting COMPLETE programs. All input and output is done using the standard streams (cin and cout in C++).
    • Below is a typical solution for a problem asking for a integer, and which must print out that many "Abracadabra"s.

<br />#include &lt;iostream&gt; using namespace std;

int main() { int n; cin &gt;&gt; n; for (int i=1 ; i &lt;= n ; i++) { cout &lt;&lt; i &lt;&lt; " Abracadabra" &lt;&lt; endl;; } return 0; }<br />
