    First International Programming Contest, April 19, 2003, Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria

    The ACM SouthEastern European Region

    The 28th ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals sponsored by IBM,
    Prague, The Czech Republic, March 28-April 1, 2004.

    Rules for ACM contests.
    Basic rules:
      Each team consists of three contestants.
      Each team will use a single computer.
      The programming languages are Java, C++, C, and Pascal.
      Contestants may bring resource materials such as books, manuals, and program listings. Contestants may not  bring any machine readable versions of software or data.
      Solutions to problems submitted for judging are called runs. Each run is  judged as accepted or rejected, and the team is notified of the results. Rejected runs will be marked as follows:

  •   run-time error
  •   time-limit exceeded
  •   wrong answer
  •   presentation error.

  •   Teams are ranked according to the most problems solved. Teams who solve the same number of problems are ranked first by least total time and, if need be, by the earliest time of submittal of the last accepted run.
        The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submittal of the first accepted run plus 20 penalty minutes for every previously rejected run for that problem. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved.

    The coaches may offer problems for the contest. Send e-mail to nkirov before March 19, 2004.
