Each year for the last eight years, FIU has offered this programming competition to the
South Florida Community.In addition to sponsorship
by Ultimate Software, the contest is supported by the School of Computing and Information
Sciences at Florida International University.
Registration is closed
The contest follows the format and rules of the ACM Regional Intercollegiate Programming Competitions (see http://icpc.baylor.edu).
Sample problems can be found at that site. Each team of three students attempts to solve a set of programming problems within the contest duration.
Registration is free, thanks to a generous grant from Ultimate Software.
The registration deadline was March 15, 2013

Each team consists of 1-3 members. A mixture of
medium-difficulty and advanced problems. The most advanced problems may require
some familiarity with graph searching, backtracking, geometry, elementary combinatorics,
and sorting with comparators. As many as 16 teams will be able to compete.
You may pre-register more than two teams, but each school is only guaranteed a
spot for two teams. After the registration deadline, unused team slots will be
awarded in a way that will allow as many schools as possible to bring a 3rd team.
If additional space is still available after that, we will allow schools to bring
a 4th team.
In order to guarantee a spot for your students, your registration must
be completed by the registration deadline.
Individual medals will be awarded members of the first, second, and third place
teams. Each student attending the event will be given a T-shirt and lunch.
Students and coaches are responsible for their own transportation to and from
the event. Door prizes are likely.
