Finally, the ACM ICPC has started in the Moscow region! For the first time in the history of ACM ICPC in Moscow, the competition consists of two stages: Moscow Programming Contest (1/8) and Moscow Subregional (1/4). The Contest is organized by the Laboratory for IT-education Development at MIPT and Moscow State University.
The first stage — the Moscow Programming Contest — was held on October 8th, 2017 at the different universities of Moscow such as Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), MSU, HSE, MAI, NUST MISIS, Bauman MSTU and others.
330 teams registered to participate in the contest so far. It means that almost 1,000 students from Moscow region are interested in the world of competitive programming!
301 teams participated officially and 14 teams participated hors concours because of some restrictions the competition has. For example, a team can be formed only by the representatives of the same university, and the participant needs to be born not earlier the 1st January 1994. Someone wanted to solve the contest individually, and managed to solve all of 11 problems suggested!
The best 92 teams are proceeded to the next stage — the Moscow Subregional, which will take place on the October 22nd. Congratulations!
