2019 Final scoreboards for Divisions 1 and 2


Teams can choose to enter one of two divisions:

Student programs must read and write standard input, so no popup windows (such as JOptionPane) are permitted. Programs cannot try to read or write named data files. Each team of three students attempts to solve a set of programming problems within the contest duration.

A registration fee of $40 for each school is required, in form of a check made out to "FIU". This check will be returned to the coach, uncashed, if all teams registered for the competition attend in person. Please send the check by mail to this address:
Giri Narasimhan, FIU School of Computing and Information Sciences, Florida International University, 11200 SW 8th St, room ECS 254B, Miami, FL 33199

Registration Restrictions

Each team consists of 2-3 members. Problem sets will contain a mixture of easy, medium-difficulty, and one or two advanced problems. As many as 30 teams will be able to compete. You may pre-register more than three teams, but each school is only guaranteed room for three teams. After the priority registration deadline, unused team slots will be awarded in a way that will allow as many schools as possible to bring a fourth team. If additional space is still available after that, we will allow schools to bring a 4th team, or even a 5th team.

A trophy will be awarded to the first place teams of both divisions. Individual medals will be awarded members of the first, second, and third place teams in each division. 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.

Each year for the last 14 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.
