Less than 1 week away until the days!

Are you ready for the upcoming programming contest? Call For Participation is available here. There is additional but important information for all participants.

Contest participants retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in and to any submitted source codes, custom tools, and related materials ("submissions") that participants had before submission. As a condition of entry, participants grant ICFPC judges a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, publish, distribute, publicly perform, and publicly display the submissions for the purposes of allowing ICFPC judges to test and evaluate the submissions for purposes of the contest.

One person may only be member of a single team, and teams may not divide or collaborate with each other once the contest has begun. As long as contest participants follow these terms and conditions, and applicable laws, there is no limitation to the number of members in a single team, and contest participants may use whatever programming languages and computer resources.

Everything of these conditions is for enjoying the programming contest. We hope you'll be looking forward to it and do your best on the days.
