Event Details


Contest Policies and Rules



All teams must be registered before joining the programming competition.  Registration fee is Php 500 / team.

A team consists of 3-5 members.

Each team can use only a single notebook computer. You may also use any written or printed material that you have brought to the competition.

Each team should also bring at least 1 USB Storage Device. This will be used for submitting solutions (just as a precaution in the event that solutions cannot be uploaded online).

Teams should make sure they have installed and configured the programming tools (e.g., Java or C++ compiler, Python interpreter, editors) that they plan to use for programming problem solutions.

You may access the internet during the contest. However, any code you submit should be your own. Wireless access is available with the setup instructions to be given to you prior to the start of the contest.

Format of Competition

The contest will consist of sets of given problems. Each problem will be worth some number of points as specified in the problem description. The more points, the harder the problem is likely to be. Teams can solve as many problems as they can within the given time. There is no order in which problems have to be solvedt. The winning team will be the team with the most points. In the event of a tie, the winning team will be the team to have submitted the final correct solution first before the time ended.

Programming Languages

Problem solutions may be coded in .NET, .PHP, C++, Java, Python, or Ruby.

Submission of Solutions

Solutions will be submitted in source form and should be named by the single letter (or letter and digit) identifying the problem and an extension indicating the type of program, e.g., A.php, A.cpp or or or A.rb. Each solution must consist of just a single source file, although that source file may contain many class and function definitions. In the case of Java, there must be exactly one public class and its name must agree with the source file name.

To submit a problem solution, you must first compress (.zip/.rar) your file/s. You can then use the online form provided to you at the start of the competition to upload your solution. 


Each correct submitted solution will earn the specified number of points for the problem. Ranking is determined by the point total of the correct solutions which have been submitted. However, each incorrect solution submitted for a problem incur a penalty of one point subtracted from the total, so it is important to only submit a solution when you are fairly certain that it is correct.


Your submission is in source code form. Depending on the language, your solution will be compiled by the judges, and then run with some test input data (which may be more extensive than the sample given in the problem description). Your program must produce the correct output for the test data, and cannot execute for longer than two minutes. You will be notified of the judges' result on the results projected on to the leaderboard. The result will be whether your solution is correct or not. Sometimes additional information will be given, e.g., your program did not compile, or the execution time limit was exceeded.

Problem Description Clarifications

You may request clarifications of the problem statement. These should not be frivolous questions, or questions that try to get hints for a solution; they should be legitimate questions to clarify problem wording or assumptions. Clarification questions may be asked before the start of the competition. Questions asked during the competition proper will no longer be entertained.

Contest Duration

The contest will end three hours after the official start. The winner will be the team with the highest points as flashed via the Leaderboard.

Work Areas

The contest will take place at Robinson’s - Dumaguete Activity Area. During the contest, contestants are not to converse with anyone except members of their team and judges.

Contest Scoreboard

Submission results will be displayed on the results Leaderboard. The team rankings will be released immediately after all last minute submissions are judged. The time remaining before the end of the competition will also be flashed on the leaderboard.
