Local Contest 2012

The ETH ACM ICPC Local Contest will take place on October 27, 2012. The competition lasts for 5 hours and consists of 5 to 10 problems. The allowed programming languages are the same as in official ICPC competitions — C, C++ and Java. Two teams are formed from the best six participants who are enrolled at ETH and meet the Regional Contest eligibility requirements. Those teams will represent ETH at the Regional Contest in Valencia. As in last year, we are glad to hold the contest together with EPFL in Lausanne (PolyProg).
