Next Waterloo-local ACM-style programming contest

The next Waterloo-local ACM-style programming contest will be held on Sunday, September 27 in MC 3022 and MC 2061. All members of the UW community are invited to try their programming skill in Scheme, C, C++, Java, or Pascal.

The results of this local contest will be used to select the UW teams for the international ACM competition. We will send three teams of three to the East Central North America Regional in Windsor on October 30-31. If we do well there, one team will advance to the World Finals in Phuket, Thailand on May 15-20, 2016.

For full details and online registration, please see: http://acm.student.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~acm00/
The contest will run from 1 pm sharp until 4 pm, and will be followed by pizza. There will be a practice contest in the morning to allow contestants, especially those competing for the first time, to get their account setup and become familiar with the contest environment.

Contestants participating in the practice contest should arrive by 10:30 am in MC 3022. For out-of-town participants, it is possible to participate remotely using a web-based system, but local participants are encouraged to attend in person if possible.
