Highlights

Time & Place

The contest takes place on Saturday, 27 May 2017 in the Computer Science building, Konemiehentie 2, Espoo.

Schedule:

Please arrive by 10:30.

Rules

The contest is open to everyone, including university students, high-school students, university researchers, and teams from companies.

We will mostly follow the same rules as in the NCPC. In brief:

Submission system

The CSES contest system will be used in HIIT Open 2017. The system automatically evaluates the solutions submitted for the tasks.

You can test the contest system beforehand at cses.fi. For example, you can try to solve problems from HIIT Open 2016.

The submission system supports the following languages and compilers:

However, please note that there is no guarantee that e.g. Python or Scala implementations can be made efficient enough to solve all tasks — all languages have the same time limits, and they are chosen based on the performance of a reasonably efficient C++ implementation.

Computers

We will use normal Linux computers, which will have the following programming tools installed:

Registration

There is no registration fee — the event is made possible with support from HIIT and Aalto University.
