Eligibility Criteria: Only those who qualified in SnackDown 2017 Pre-Elimination Round A and Round B are eligible to take part in this contest.
Our contests are open to all the programmers across the globe. However, all the participants are expected to abide to CodeChef Code Of Conduct.
Rules and Regulations:
- Please do not discuss strategy, suggestions or tips in the comments during a live contest. Posting questions clarifying the problem statement is ok. If you are unsure, email us.
- Discussing CodeChef's problems or any aspect of problem, on any other platform on web, on identification, could lead to disabling of respective account and banning from the community.
- Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries during the contest.
- 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.
- Users are ranked according to the most problems solved. Ties will be broken by the total time for each user in ascending order of time.
- The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each problem solved. The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submittal of the first accepted run plus 20 penalty minutes for every previously rejected run for that problem. There is no time consumed for a problem that is not solved.
- The decision of the organizers in declaring the results will be final. No queries in this regard will be entertained.
- Any participant found to be indulging in any form of malpractice will be immediately disqualified.
Note: You can now "Code, Compile, and Run" your codes on our newly launched Online IDE.
However, if you are using any other online development environment, make sure that other contestants don't have access to your code. As a contestant, you are responsible for making sure others don't access the code that you submit. If you use Ideone, make sure to mark your submission "private" (not secret)".
- There is a delay in the computation of the ranklist. It might take sometime to reflect your scores on the ranklist. Regret the inconvenience caused.
- In SPCLN, in the Explanation section, "The only way the spacecraft can destroy the space debris is :" has been changed to "One way the spacecraft can destroy the space debris is".
In the Mandarin translations of problem FOURPTS, in the output section "the absolute difference between dist(B, C) and dist(B, A) + dist(A, C) is less than 10-6." should be "the absolute difference between dist(B, C) and dist(B, A) + dist(A, C) is less than 10-9."
In the Mandarin translations of problem WIQ, the constraints on a_i, b_i should be 1012, but they are written as <= 10^9.
