The competition takes 5 hours and consists of 5 to 10 problems. The allowed programming languages are the official ICPC programming languages C, C++ and Java. From the best 6 participants enrolled at ETH and that meet the Regional Contest eligibility requirements, two teams are formed that will represent ETH at the Regional Contest in Madrid.
