Contest problems will become visible on December 1st 2010 at 15:00 hours IST.
You will receive one point for solving a problem (passing all test cases - no partial credit), regardless of the level of difficulty of that problem.
You can submit solutions as many times as you'd like, there are no penalties for incorrect submissions.
Each contest will have one min/max tie breaker problem, where the best solution will receive one point and all other solutions will receive a fraction based how close they come to the best solution.
2. Hi guys,
We have updated the test data now and have begun rejudging previous submissions to the three problems.
We regret the inconvenience caused and sincerely apologize for it.
1. Please bear in mind that the challenge problem for the December 2010 Challenge will NOT be re-judged at the end of the contest unlike last time.
For those of you that were not part of the November 2010 challenge and are wondering what this announcement is about then not that for the challenge problem GRAPHCH in the previous long contest, we had re-judged only the last accepted submission on new Test Data. The time limit on the new data was extended to ensure that the accepted solution does not time out.
