Contest Introduction

The UCF Local Programming Contest is modeled after the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC), with slight adjustments to serve as a qualifier and reach the widest range of students.

To understand how the contest works, please read the Rules and Procedures, then you can see more specifics in about Judged Runs and Responses and a helpful Example of Scoring.

If you want to participate in the next contest, you should also review our recommendations on Preparing for the Contest and look at the language-specific I/O examples for your programming language(s) of choice: Java, C, C++, or Python.
