The Helvetic Coding Contest is Switzerland’s greatest algorithmic programming contest. It will be held on Saturday March 21st 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 73 CHF, but we encourage you to buy a day pass from your commune): when registering simply indicate “VIS” as your affiliation and use this form to claim your travel expenses.
If your team consists of a majority of VIS members, the participation fees for the whole team will be covered: the non-VIS student should select “Guest of VIS” as his affiliation.
