The Helvetic Coding Contest is Switzerland’s greatest algorithmic programming contest. It will be held on Saturday March 16 at EPFL in Lausanne. Similar to the ACM ICPC, participation is in teams of three bachelor, master, or PhD students sharing one computer.
The ACM VIS will cover the participation fees for all VIS members and reimburse the train ticket to Lausanne (up to halb-tax, and max 71 CHF, but we encourage you to buy a day pass from your commune): when registering simply indicate “VIS” as your affiliation.
For more information and to register, consult the official website: http://hc2.ch/e.
Please direct your questions (also ETH-specific ones) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
