ACM ICPC Registration

It's that time of year again. The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest is fast approaching, with the Southern African regionals set to take place on the 20th October.

For UCT students, we've just opened up registration which for the first time is all done online (it's about time!). You can head on over to the following site for registration (remember, UCT only!):

If you are at another university in Southern Africa, check the regional site for further information. If you want to participate, but are stuck finding who to contact at your university, drop a comment here and I'll try my best to help you out.

For those at UCT, we have arranged some special deals with Google which should make this year even more spectacular than ever before. As if being crushed by Bruce wasn't enough (remember last year?), how about being crushed by Bruce working together with a couple Google engineers? ;-) Ag, it's fun times. Even if you get 0, you'll still have a ball.

Remember that this is Bruce and Carl's last year with us (and likely to be my last one at UCT too), so make this one special for us. Let's get as many teams as we can. Let's show all the other universities we're competing against who's the best! A repeat of the top 5 at the IT Challenge would be amazing, but just as amazing would be getting 20 teams. :-P

The world finals are in Canada next year, hosted by the University of Alberta. The hotel looks simply amazing:
