Things you need to know before Registration

Here’s everything you need to know to participate in Indian regionals.

  • Participants need to register on the Baylor Site to be eligible to take part in the contest. Click here to register. Read Instructions and Regional rules here: ICPC Coach Instructions and ICPC Regional Rules
  • There will only be one common online round for all the 4 Indian regionals.
  • You must not register your team for more than two regionals in a year, as that will lead to your disqualification from all regionals.
  • A student who has already competed in regional contests during five different contest years is NOT eligible to compete.
  • Based on the performance of the online round, each regional site will decide on the number of teams to be invited for the on-site round.
  • Preference is generally given to maximize the unique number of colleges participating in the on-site round.
  • Based on the performance of the teams in the on-site rounds some of the top teams will qualify for the World Finals. The exact number of teams qualifying from each regional will be decided by the Asian ICPC Director only after all the regionals are over.
  • Each individual should only have one account registered at the Baylor site

Note to participants: If an individual is part of two different teams, then during the online round, they have to participate only as a member of one team. If there are similar codes because of this, both teams risk getting disqualified for plagiarism.

CodeChef’s Initiative

Apart from the ambitious Go For Gold initiative, where we want an Indian team to win the ICPC world finals, for the 2019-20 edition, we will continue our support towards the participants through:

  • Providing ICPC travel sponsorship for 75 Indian students from the September and October Cook-Off 2019's respectively.
    • Top 50 participants from September Cook-Off 2019 Division 1 will be eligible for sponsorship, while new top 25 participants will be selected from October Cook-Off 2019 Division 1.
    • In order to participate in the contest and get your sponsorship, all you need is a CodeChef id. We guess you already have it. If you do not, then get one here.
  • On top of all, as a part our Go For Gold initiative, a team which finishes with a rank better than 18 at the ICPC World Finals will receive a cash prize of INR 1,609,435.
