The University of Kansas is pleased to call for participation in the 12th
Annual ICFP Programming Contest, hosted by the Computer Systems Design
Laboratory at the Information and Telecommunication Technology Center.
The contest, associated with the International Conference on Functional
Programming, will be held on the weekend of June 26-29. The contest task
will be released sixteen seconds after 13:00 Central Daylight Time (US) on
Friday, and entries will be accepted until 13:00:16 CDT on Monday. There
is no preregistration required, and participation is free and open to all.
Teams may participate from any location, and may use any programming
language(s). Last year, over 330 teams participated from around the globe.
Solutions can be submitted to a lightning round (within the first 24
hours) and the regular 72-hour competition. First place, lightning round,
and judges' choice prizes will be awarded, which will include prize money
to help defray the costs of travel to the conference for the winners as
well as small cash prizes. In addition, the winners of the contest will
receive bragging rights for the programming language of their choice. This
makes the contest a popular avenue for demonstrating the superiority of a
favorite language, or for exercising an experimental tool.
Stay tuned for more information as the contest approaches! Read the
