How Directi is additionally contributing this year?

Apart from the ambitious Go For Gold initiative, where we want an Indian team to win the ICPC world finals, for the 2013 - 2014 edition, we will continue our support towards the participants through:

  • Conducting couple of warm-up rounds for ACM ICPC to be held on the 22nd September, 2013 and 20th October, 2013.
  • Travel reimbursement for the 75 Indian students for their ACM-ICPC expenses.

The top 75 Indian students from the warm-up round for ACM ICPC @ October Cook-Off 2013 shall have their ACM-ICPC expenses reimbursed!
