The CCSC-Eastern Collegiate Programming Contest is held on the Saturday morning of the conference. Prizes will be awarded.
The CCSC-Eastern Collegiate Programming Contest is a competition for undergraduate student programming teams.
Each team consists of two or three members. The first team to register will receive a spot in the contest as long as the contest is not already full. A second team may register on a space available basis. No more than two teams from one school may register. Refunds will be made for teams that have registered but space is not available in the competition.
Team registration entitles the team members to attend conference sessions, exhibits and keynotes, and to receive lunch and snacks during the programming contest. Programming Contest Registration does NOT include the banquet on Friday night or Conference Proceedings. The team advisor should register as a regular conference attendee.
Programming problem solutions may be solved using either Java or C++.
Sample problems from previous years can be found at http://faculty.ycp.edu/~dhovemey/contest/index.html.
Before the contest begins, a practice session will demonstrate basic techniques of the operating system, the compilers, and judging system. However, it is expected that the participating teams will have some familiarity with development environments.
Each team advisor and their team members should check in on Saturday morning at the time and place indicated in the conference program. The contest will start with a short information session for all participants. The practice session and tutorial using the contest software will follow.
All teams will be given the same set of problems to solve at the start of the contest. The problems may be solved in any order.
The awards ceremony will be held during the conference luncheon and typically snacks will be provided during the contest.
Contest registration is by team, not individual.
