We at NTNU are hosting an on-site programming contest event called "IDI
Open" to make the wait for NCP 2011 go by a little faster. As it has
most of the previous years the event has been held, it is possible to
participate online (although not being eligible for prizes). Last year a
team from Århus was at the top of the total scoreboard.
If you are still active or in contact with students or people (event is
open to everyone) interested in participating we hope that you are able
to forward this information so that as many as possible can enjoy this
event live when it is held the 2nd of April from 11:00 to 16:00. Rules
are pretty much the same as ACM with group of up to 3 people trying to
solve as many problems as possible in 5 hours (more info on website). We
urge online participants to respect these rules, while we hope that as
many as possible from other countries and schools choose to take part!
Last year there were over 90 teams participating, and we hope to manage
that amount this year as well.
The event website is: http://events.idi.ntnu.no/open11/
A practice event is already up so that registered teams can preview the
system in advance of the actual competion. If you (or students at your
school) have any question about this event, don't hesitate to ask, and
we hope that you contact us about similar events you choose to host.
