Guidelines of Sponsorship Compliance for ACM-ICPC contest

Guidelines of Sponsorship Compliance for ACM-ICPC contest
 
 The principle of IBM sponsorship compliance is very simple and these apply to Asia Regional contests and associated online contests.IBM is the World Sponsor and is the primary (first) sponsor for ICPC Asia Regional  contests .”   
The interpretation of this sentence can be detailed as follows: 
1. If no 2nd sponsor, then you should use the ICPC-IBM balloon-box logo.
2. The ACM-ICPC logo and the IBM logo must be in your ICPC contest home page. This is required regardless of any or no support from local IBM.
 
3. If there are 2nd or 3rd sponsors, IBM must be first and must be NOT smaller than other sponsors. Equal size is acceptable.
4. If your local sponsor requires something different such as Cup name, you can either refuse or you can put their stuff completely separated from ACM, ACM-ICPC, and IBM. Those stuff can not be associated with ICPC .
5. No named Cup for ICPC contest is allowed.
6. These guidelines apply to your Asia Regional and associated contests. These guidelines cover all Banners, T-shirts, Award Plaques, Award Cups, Brochures, Certificates, and Home pages.
7. Provincial/Invitational and Non Asia-host National contests are outside of Asia normal activities and these guidelines are not required for Provincial/Invitational, but are encouraged to use. ICPC-IBM balloon-box logo will be great to use. Any of these contests must be registered on ICPC web site.
8. Violation of sponsorship compliance will be
(i) Shutting down of contest site from registration or competition on September 1 Dec 1; and
(ii) Cancellation of WF advanced teams from the violation site on Dec 15 or after.

A contestant may not compete in World Finals for more than two (2) years. A team may participate in the Asia Regional Contest, bypassing the School, provincial, national levels, with the approval of the Asia Regional Site Director.
9. Three levels of Asia Programming Contests:
Asia Regional Contests,
Provincial/Multi-provincial/Invitational /National Contest, and Campus Programming Contest.(
          a) The ACM/ICPC Asia Regional must be hosted by a faculty member. The faculty member must apply directly to Asia Director. The Contest Site Director must be an associate professor or above, or equivalent in a university. The Student Chapter members or student leaders can be volunteers in helping or working for the contest. A faculty member must write an e-mail application using his/her university e-mail account. Once approved, the university faculty applicant will be in a wait list to be a future host for Asia Regional. Some financial support will be provided from ACM-ICPC and IBM for Asia Regionals. ACM-ICPC and IBM will contribute USDS$xxxxx or more for Asia Regional contest. The host university must obtain additional funding locally and from registration fee. The host university must attend the World Finals and the RCD Symposium earlier in the same year for training purpose. The host university is also required to host Provincial/National contest before they are qualified for Asia Regional contest host.
Winning teams of Asia Regional is (are) selected to World Finals. Asia Regional must be on-site contest. If the registration for on-site  Asia Regional is too large, a first round online Asia Regional may be held before a on-site contest.
Asia Regional Site Directors or their representatives are required to participate the RCD (Regional Contest Directors) meeting scheduled in the World Finals Contest during the same calendar year. If a new Site Director or his/her representative does not participate in the World Finals RCD meeting, the Asia Director may cancel its hosting authorization of the same calendar year.
          (b) Provincial /National Contest and etc.
The application for a Provincial/National contest by a faculty member is preferred. However, a student organization may host the contest by applying directly to Asia Director. But a faculty supervisor must supervise the contest. This faculty supervisor must be responsible for the fairness of the contest and the integrity of the entire contest operation. The faculty supervisor must send Asia Provincial Coordinator an e-mail using his university e-mail account to confirm this before the application can be approved. No financial support will be provided for provincial/national contest. ACM-ICPC certificates will be signed by faculty supervisor and be issued for winners.
Registration of teams must be done in ICPC web site. Team must be of 3 contestants. No winning teams will be advanced to World Finals from National/Provincials unless they are also winner of Asia Regionals. The contest date of Provincial/National must be after World Finals (3/15/2011) and before Oct 15 of each year.
 All National, Provincial and Invitational contests (these contests are together called Local Area contests) will be all grouped together in an independent contest site in ACM-ICPC Asia Region titled “Asia Provincial-National contests”.
 (
          c) Campus Contest and etc.
Hosting campus contest by a faculty member is preferred. A student organization may host the contest by applying directly to Asia Director too. But a faculty supervisor must supervise the contest. No financial support will be provided for campus contest. ACM-ICPC certificates will NOT be issued for winners. Your may issue your own certificates. Registration must be done outside of ICPC web site.

10. Asia First Round Regional and Asia On-Site Regional:
           (a) ACM - ICPC Asia Region has grown substantially in recent years. On-Site Regional Contest usually cannot accommodate large numbers of teams. It is also mandatory that each site accommodates all of qualified registrations. To accomplish such goal, it is strongly recommended that each site conducts two cycles of regional contests – Asia First Round and Asia On-Site. Each site should conduct Asia First Round Regional Contest in advance to select an appropriate number of teams for the On-Site regional contest. Those teams not selected for the On-Site Regional Contest will be ranked as honorary mentioned teams in the Asia Regional Final Ranking. Each Contest Site Director may set up its own selection formula for teams to be advanced to On-Site Regional Contest. Contest Site Director may also modify contest rules for the First Round Regional Contest within ICPC guidelines, while On-Site Regional Contest must follow Asia Rules and ICPC Regional Contest Rules. It is also recommended that foreign teams may be exempted from First Round Regional Contest.
          (b) If the total registration is low and all teams can be accommodated by On-Site Regional Contest, the First Round Regional Contest may be skipped. (The selection formula used by China sites in the Appendix 2 is a good reference for all.)
          (c) Multi-provincial Online Internet Contest and National Contest
hosted by Asia Regional host university are considered as Asia First
Round Regional Contest if these contests are used to select teams for Asia On-Site Regional Contest. These Contests will be under the Asia Regional First Round Contest and not be grouped together with “Asia Provincial/National Contests”.
 
B.  Eligibility of Team Member, the Team and Registration
1. Rule of Eligibility Decision Tree

          (a) All contestants are urged to study the rule of the Eligibility Decision Tree in ACM - ICPC Regional Rules for the eligibility of all contestants throughout the world. A team consists of exactly three contestants. ( http://icpc.baylor.edu/)
          (b) Remarks on eligibility rule:
Technically, it is possible that a team may consist of three first-year graduate students if each of them meets the rule qualification in a four-year program or university. Students from two years colleges are also qualified  to participate Asia Regional Contest.  
          (c) Participation of two sites for the same year in Asia Regional Contests is considered as one-time competition under the eligibility rule.
2. A student can represent only one university.
3. A student may compete in at most two Asia Site Contests, home or not-home sub-region.

4. The coach of a team must be a faculty or a designated staff member of the team’s university. A coach from outside of the team’s university will disqualify the team.
5. Because of the problem of ‘no-shows’ by teams who register and confirm participation but do not actually participate in the contest, it was decided that: If such team do not cancel their registration at least ten (10) days before the contest date, and do not show up in the contest, this team's contestants will be disqualified for all other contest sites in the same contest year.
6. Registration:
The university name of a team must be already in the ICPC registration database before a team can register. The team coach should request the Contest Site Director to ask ICPC manager to enter the Team’s university name in the database if needed. This registration prerequisite applies to both Asia Regional and Local Area Contests.
7.  Registration Fee:
The Steering Committee of each contest site determines the registration fee of each team. In previous years, the regional registration fee ranged from US$0 to US$200 around the world.

8. Verification of the Asia On-Site Regional Contest: T
he coach of each team is required to verify and complete the personal information of all contestants before the contest of the Asia On-Site Regional
(or Final Round Regional) contest. Without such verification, the team will not be accepted for Asia On-Site or Asia Final Round contest and therefore be disqualified.
9. Team Members Substitution in World Finals and in Regional Contest:The team members for the team advanced to World Finals must be identical to the members participated in the Regional Contest. No substitution or reserves will be allowed in the World Finals. Any alteration on the team will disqualify the team to the World Finals. However, Regional Contest may allow reserve team member registration and may allow the substitution of the team member in the regional contest provided that the team composition change is entered in the ICPC registration web site before the Regional Contest. Any change to the team after that regional contest is not allowed.  
C.  Conduct, Scoring of the Contest, and Team # Assignments.

1. Electronic dictionaries are not allowed. Paper dictionaries, however, may be allowed. Contest Site Director may alter this rule. The World Finals rule on reference materials may be different from this rule.
2. No personally owned diskettes or calculators are allowed.
3. Questions or requests written in a language other than English may be made from contestants to designated translators and then to judges. Judges will respond to contestants directly in English.
4. Notification of accepted runs may be suspended at the appropriate time (normally one hour before the end) to keep the final results confidential for the purpose of suspension. Notification of rejected runs will continue until the end of the contest.
5. It is recommended that the team numbers should be assigned randomly before the contest. Team numbers should be used in PC^2. University names should not be used in the PC^2 and should not be revealed to the judging team during the contest. The Contest Site Director is responsible for posting the matching list of team numbers and university names in the audience area within 60 minutes after the contest starts. Contest Site Directors may contact Asia Contests Director to find out an efficient way of random assignment of team numbers.

設計你的人生程序

            設計你的人生程序
10月29日晚7:30,美國德州州立大學電腦系資深教授,ACM全球大學生軟件競賽亞洲區主任黃金雄教授來到四川大學江安校區,在綜合樓C503以“設計你的人生程序”為主題,介紹ACM大賽為目的,為我校同學帶來了一場生動而精彩的講座。
從ACM到
ICPC
作為ACM全球大學生軟件編程大賽主席團委員,黃金雄教授向我們詳細地介紹了ACM和ICPC的發展歷史。ACM是全球最具有影響力的電腦賽事之一,被譽為電腦界的“奧林匹克”,ACM不僅為全球各高校計算機專業人才搭建了一個展示自我的舞臺,更提高了學生使用計算機的綜合能力,為社會挑選出許多優秀的計算機專業人才。ICPC則是世界高校程序機構,從1991年只有200多支參賽隊伍到08年的7000多支參賽隊伍,黃金雄教授付出了很多心血並見證了ICPC一路的成長。隨後,黃教授向大家講解了ACM大賽的參賽程序和比賽規則以及近十年來的發展情況。黃教授還向我們展示了國內高校在ACM世界大賽中獲得的驕人成績。講座中,黃教授的熱情感染了在座的每個同學,他多次鼓勵同學們積極參加ACM
,努力展示自己。精彩的內容與詼諧的語言贏得了在場同學雷鳴般的掌聲。
時光不能倒流
此次講座並非整場圍繞ACM
編程為話題,黃教授更多的使向同學們傳達一種宛如心靈雞湯式的他人生的成功哲學思想。
關於如何贏得比賽,黃教授認為只有執著才能成功,他將成功比喻成一個由三條邊穩定支撐著的三角形:它的每條邊分別代表著天資,努力和情商機運,中間則填滿了智慧,形象的比喻使場內掌聲不斷。黃教授還勉勵同學們一定要利用好自己人生的時光努力拼搏,把握人生的機運,創造自己的未來,告誡我們不要把自己“畫”在線內,人的潛能是巨大的。講座中,黃教授以自己的親身經歷告訴我們應該從身邊的小事做起,才能擁有更大的成就。
關於ACM
的生命哲學及人生成功的啟發
黃教授極具親和力,平易近人,詼諧的語調,滿懷的熱情,幽默的性格,對於文學的鐘愛使整場講座一直處於一種活躍與輕松的氛圍當中。
從ACMer中他悟出了人生的哲學,認為ACMer應具有培養成功的胸懷,在平凡中才能體現偉大,人生需要親情,友情,師生情等各種情感的滋潤,並和我們分享了許多獲獎人的心得體會,在場同學感觸頗深。黃教授教導大家一定要學會感恩,感激他人,並及時將它表達出來。講座中,黃教授飽含深情地為同學們朗讀了他自己的散文《十幾年了,我還在悲傷》,文中那種因母親臨終自己未能陪在母親身邊的遺憾與悲傷感染了在場每個同學,掌聲久久不能平息。鐘愛於文學的黃教授還向我們朗讀了他寫給兒子的一篇文章,表達出了父子之間那種真切的情感,讓我們很受感動。

本次黃教授的講座成功地使得同學們對於ACM大賽有了清楚的認識與了解,讓同學們心靈受到了洗禮,從中學到了許多成功的人生哲學,對於同學們設立人生目標和規劃未來藍圖有很大的幫助。

      世程賽(世界大學生程序設計競賽,
ACM-ICPC)在亞洲從最初一支臺灣交大隊伍參加了1991年的世程決賽,擴展到現在每年有二十萬的亞洲大學生參與各層次的比賽,包括大學選拔賽,國家賽,邀請賽,省賽及亞洲區域賽。這個比賽使得亞洲及世界五大洲為數眾多的大學生,用程式來解題的能力提升不僅僅是十倍,甚或百倍。
      身為世程賽亞洲區的主席及創始人,十幾年來眼看著,許多國家的大學生用程序來解題的能力步步高升;而我們臺灣十幾年來,除了交大队3入围世程赛之外幾乎每年清一色,只有臺大一隊每年進入世程決賽的資格。一直盼望著有那麽一天,臺灣會有更多的大學隊伍出線進入世程賽決賽圈。我們臺灣學生能做得到嗎?別的國家或地區能,臺灣為什麽不能?

      這些程序解題能力得到提升的大學生,將會影響及改變他們國家未來的資訊信息產業。我們臺灣還不該警覺嗎?

      盼望了十幾年,今年終於突破了。交大將在
2010年與臺大並肩走進世程賽的決賽場地—哈爾濱工程大學,與世界頂尖的100校大學生進行智力的較量,同時一起觀賞由各式各樣的冰雕構成的冰雪大世界。
      要贏得比賽就必須提升程式解題的能力,解題能力的提升是要靠訓練得來的。根據我的非正式調查及了解,要進入亞洲賽的前五名,就得訓練
800-1000題;要進入世界決賽的前十名,就得訓練1500題以上,甚至3000題。你(妳)們能做得到嗎?為什麽不能?


      我在
黃金雄教授部落格 (http://blog.roodo.com/cjblog) 裏列出了十幾個網站,供大家訓練。我這個繁體部落格簡體博客(http://hi.baidu.com/cjhwang) 裏也提供了許多ACM-ICPC的訊息。另外,設在交大的ACM-ICPC Taiwan Council (http://acm.nctu.edu.tw/node/5) 也有很多資訊供大家參閱。希望不久的將來,臺灣有更多的學校進入世程賽決賽圈,我也更希望看到臺灣隊伍,在世程賽決賽場裏,每年都拿金牌回家。

十幾年了,我還在悲傷

十幾年了,我還在悲傷  
黄金雄 教授   (西杰)

記得我曾經告訴妳,妳的兩隻腳拇指靠兩腳中間的骨頭比常人突出許多。我說妳的腳拇指長得跟妳祖母(我的阿娘)一模一樣,每次看到妳突出的腳拇指,我不禁就會悲從中來。

我要細聲告訴妳,自從我阿娘去世以後,我常常在三十五號高速公路上馳騁的汽車裡,一邊握著駕駛盤,一邊流淚。這種情形持續了好幾年……因為我從來沒有想到,在我阿娘臨走前的那一刻,我無緣見到她一面,也沒有讓她牽著我的手,靜靜離開人間。這個錯誤和遺憾,讓我悲傷了許多年,現在我要把我傾盆的淚水,灑在這張紙上。親愛的寶貝女兒,除了讓妳傾聽我的輕聲細語,我還要妳看到滿紙歉疚的淚水。

自從妳的哥哥及妳出生不久後,我就替你們辦了護照及回我故鄉的簽證。因為我總以為妳的祖父母有隨時走的可能,所以我提早準備就緒,以便隨時可以帶著全家奔回我的故鄉。

護照、簽證不停地加簽,一晃就是十幾年。其中,我也帶著你們回我的故鄉,讓你們及你們的祖父母享受一下三代同堂的歡樂。沒想到,就在妳十一年級(即臺灣的高二)及妳哥哥上哈佛大學的第一年,令我一輩子後悔的事情竟發生了。那一年,正值八月夏天,我一如往常地開車出去吃午餐,午餐後習慣性地把車停在系主任保留車位,然後從停車場向辦公室走去,因為辦公室裡總有做不完的系務。走到半途,我突然感到全身不舒服,腦中一片昏眩,幾乎快暈倒。我趕緊靠著大樓牆邊蹲下,休息了十幾分鐘,後來才勉強走回辦公室而且還對秘書抱怨道:「外面天氣真是太熱,我差點昏倒在地上。」

大約過了一個半小時,秘書小姐進來說,有一通她聽不懂的電話,問我要不要接。原來那是我哥哥的電話,他說阿娘一個多小時前走了。在我阿娘快走時,她在醫院裡掙扎了一陣子,於是我哥哥及他的兒子,快速地把她載回家,因為臺灣人總希望老人家在家中去世,好讓靈魂記得自己的家,並且可以留在家中保護後代子孫。我哥哥還說,我阿娘臨死前一個多小時,一直在流淚,而且還不時地環視著每個人,好像在尋找我的影子,好讓我握著她的手,靜靜離去。

古今中外很多人都說,母子之間有很強的心電感應存在,而它就發生在我身上!
原來,我在停車場幾乎昏倒的那段時間,也就是我阿娘臨走的那個時刻,她臨走前對我的思念竟然飛躍半個世界,感應到我疲憊的身心。

為了帶著你們奔回故鄉處理你們的祖父母可能的突發事件,我十幾年前就準備好了,沒想到,一九九○年的夏天,事情真正發生時,我竟然糊塗了。事情是這樣的:自從我到某大學掌管系務之後,我發現這個落伍保守的科系需要加速整頓,以便趕上高科技的時代,但也因為我的決心及加速改革動作,激起了系裡幾位紅脖子德州佬的反抗。這幾位紅脖子竟然用全部的時間,尋找我帳目裡任何可能的污點,或學術著作的每一頁是否抄襲。雖然最後都沒事,但那段日子裡,我幾乎每天都處在高度緊張狀況下過日子。在妳祖母去世前的兩個星期,我哥哥告訴我,妳的祖母去醫院了,可能很嚴重。由於每天都在緊張狀況下應付幾個紅脖子,我竟然犯了一生最大的錯誤!我對我哥哥說:「三個月前,我才見過她,應該沒關係吧!我可能暫時不回去了。」就這樣,在我阿娘彌留之際,我竟沒有在她身邊,握著她粗糙的手,讓她靜靜地離去。我更沒有到醫院去照顧她、呵護她,稍稍表達我這顆遊子之心。

我親愛的女兒啊!就是因為這樣,我難過了一輩子,雖然我趕上了她的葬禮,但我為這件事,內心對阿娘的愧疚,流了十幾年的淚!從這些內心的傷痛,我深深體會到:我們要把我們對人的感激(尤其是父母的養育之恩)及時表達,儘量避免留下終生的遺憾,因為時光不會等待,也絕不會倒流。

我親愛的女兒,妳小時候常哭鬧著小孩子關心的事,眼中充滿了淚水,妳曾經這麼問我:「爸爸,您怎麼沒有淚水,怎麼不會哭?」我的小佩兒,爸爸是有淚水的。自從你們出生以後,爸爸曾經為了瑣事流了幾次淚,如今在三十五號高速公路的汽車裡,因為經常想念我的阿娘而流淚,為了這份永遠歉疚的心,十幾年了,我還在悲傷流淚。為什麼時光不能倒流?為什麼不讓我回到一九九○年那個夏天,在她最後幾天裡,能夠讓我輕輕摟著我的阿娘,讓我服侍她、呵護她。

為什麼時光不能倒流?
十幾年了,我還在悲傷。

1.         “啟航講壇”第六十二期:
ACM——設計你的人生程序 (哈工程大學國家大學生文化素質教育基地)621下午14時,校國家大學生文化素質教育基地,有幸邀請到全球ACM大學生軟件競賽亞洲區主任、美國德州州立大學計算機系資深教授黃金雄作客啟航講壇,為我校師生獻上一場題為“ACM-設計你的人生程序”的演講,從中國擁抱ACM-ICPC到《為什麽時光不能倒流》,黃教授向我們暢言自己的生命哲學及人生成功經驗。………教授提出:成功就像是一個由三條邊穩定支撐的三角形,它的三條邊分別是“天資”、“勤奮”和“情商導出的機運”。天資是生而就有、無法改變的,機運也不是總在路口等著你的一輛公交車,它需要你去爭取,所以勤奮就占了成功的很大比例。除此之外,黃教授自己,還有親子情的滋潤,使他心裏長存對父母的感恩和對子女的責任,使自己在平凡中活得不平凡。“困境是成功的前奏”,“不要放棄做夢的力量”,這是黃教授告訴我們的,而在所著的《為什麽時光不能倒流》這本心靈隨筆中,他用細膩、委婉的筆觸,尋找著記憶裏那些不能重來的感動。《十幾年了,我還在悲傷》、《牛車底下爬出來的嬰兒》、《我可以什麽都沒有,我只要孩子平安回家》、《我們為什麽來到這個世界上》,他就像是一個站在時光裏的睿智的學者,輕聲的呼喚人們心中那最原始、最美好的親情,告知我們來到這個世界的意義。

學術講座“設計你的人生程序”在四川大學江安校區舉行
1029730,美國德州州立大學電腦系資深教授,ACM全球大學生軟件競賽亞洲區主任黃金雄教授來到四川大學江安校區,在綜合樓C503以“設計你的人生程序”為主題,介紹ACM大賽為目的,為我校同學帶來了一場生動而精彩的講座。
ACMICPC
作為ACM全球大學生軟件編程大賽主席團委員,黃金雄教授向我們詳細地介紹了ACMICPC的發展歷史。ACM是全球最具有影響力的電腦賽事之一,被譽為電腦界的“奧林匹克”,ACM不僅為全球各高校計算機專業人才搭建了一個展示自我的舞臺,更提高了學生使用計算機的綜合能力,為社會挑選出許多優秀的計算機專業人才。ICPC則是世界高校程序機構,從1991年只有200多支參賽隊伍到08年的7000多支參賽隊伍,黃金雄教授付出了很多心血並見證了ICPC一路的成長。隨後,黃教授向大家講解了ACM大賽的參賽程序和比賽規則以及近十年來的發展情況。黃教授還向我們展示了國內高校在ACM世界大賽中獲得的驕人成績。講座中,黃教授的熱情感染了在座的每個同學,他多次鼓勵同學們積極參加ACM,努力展示自己。精彩的內容與詼諧的語言贏得了在場同學雷鳴般的掌聲。
時光不能倒流
此次講座並非整場圍繞ACM編程為話題,黃教授更多的使向同學們傳達一種宛如心靈雞湯式的他人生的成功哲學思想。關於如何贏得比賽,黃教授認為只有執著才能成功,他將成功比喻成一個由三條邊穩定支撐著的三角形:它的每條邊分別代表著天資,努力和情商機運,中間則填滿了智慧,形象的比喻使場內掌聲不斷。黃教授還勉勵同學們一定要利用好自己人生的時光努力拼搏,把握人生的機運,創造自己的未來,告誡我們不要把自己“畫”在線內,人的潛能是巨大的。講座中,黃教授以自己的親身經歷告訴我們應該從身邊的小事做起,才能擁有更大的成就。

關於ACMer的生命哲學及人生成功的啟發
教授極具親和力,平易近人,詼諧的語調,滿懷的熱情,幽默的性格,對於文學的鐘愛使整場講座一直處於一種活躍與輕松的氛圍當中。ACMer中他悟出了人生的哲學,認為ACMer應具有培養成功的胸懷,在平凡中才能體現偉大,人生需要親情,友情,師生情等各種情感的滋潤,並和我們分享了許多獲獎人的心得體會,在場同學感觸頗深。黃教授教導大家一定要學會感恩,感激他人,並及時將它表達出來。講座中,黃教授飽含深情地為同學們朗讀了他自己的散文《十幾年了,我還在悲傷》,文中那種因母親臨終自己未能陪在母親身邊的遺憾與悲傷感染了在場每個同學,掌聲久久不能平息。鐘愛於文學的黃教授還向我們朗讀了他寫給兒子的一篇文章,表達出了父子之間那種真切的情感,讓我們很受感動。本次黃教授的講座成功地使得同學們對於ACM大賽有了清楚的認識與了解,讓同學們心靈受到了洗禮,從中學到了許多成功的人生哲學,對於同學們設立人生目標和規劃未來藍圖有很大的幫助。(記者:徐婧 攝影:謝豐豫)                                計算機學院•軟件學院學生記者團

ACM-ICPC Asia Specific Rules I of II (亞洲賽區競賽另外規則)

Asia Specific Regional Contest Rules - March 2009
(Last Revision April 2009)
ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest 2009; Sponsored by IBM

(I) Mission. The ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest
(ICPC) is an activity of the ACM that provides college students with
an opportunity to demonstrate and sharpen their problem-solving and
computing skills. The ACM/ICPC Asia Regional Contests invite Asian
students to meet, to establish friendships, and to promote fair
competition in programming.

(II) Fundamentals of the Rules of ICPC Regional Contests:Rules for the
Asia Regional Contests are additions to the rules of ACM ICPC Regional
Programming Contests and ICPC Steering Committee
Policies/Procedures
For ICPC Regionals and P/P, please refer to
hyperlink: http://icpc.baylor.edu/.)

(III) Additional Asia regional specific rules:

(A) Regional Contest Organization and Administration

1. The Asia Region covers all territories and countries in Asia, such
as Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, North Korea, Japan, China,
Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, India, Sri
Lanka, Burma, Vietnam, Macau, Mongolia, Pakistan, Bangladesh,
Afghanistan, and Iran, etc. Students in Central Asia and in Middle
East may participate Asia Contest with the approval of Asia Director.
2. Asia Regional Contests do not divide the region by political
territories. A team that advances to the Contest Finals represents the
team’s university, not the team’s political boundary.
3. The contest is a two-to-four-tiered competition among teams of
students representing institutions of higher education. The first tier
includes the Asia Regional Contests, which are held through September,
October, November and early December of each year. The top-scoring
team from each site of the Regional Contest automatically advances to
the Contest World Finals (the second tier). A pre-regional tier is
described in item 9 of this section titled "National, Provincial,
Invitational, and School Level Programming Contests".
4. The Asia Regional Contest is administered under the direction of
the "Asia Contests Director or Asia Director," who is charged with
executing Regional Contests within a set of rules and guidelines that
have been approved by the ACM ICPC Executive Director. The Asia
Contests Director selects several contest sites in Asia each year to
hold the Asia Regional Contests. The Asia Contests Director also
appoints one Site Director to head each Contest Site Steering
Committee. Site Directors are charged with responsibilities of
planning, organizing and executing the Regional Contests according to
ACM/ICPC Operational Guidelines.
All Asia Regional Contest hosts must have hosted National, or
Provincial contests before hosting the Asia Regional Contest.
5. Asia Super Region is organized as one single region -- Asia Region.
This unique regional organization in Asia promotes the cooperation of
all Asian contestants, and universities from all political boundaries.
The Asia Contests Director (also called Super Regional Director) also
appoints Local Area Contest Directors for National, Provincial, and
Invitational contests in the Asia Super Region.
6. The recommended organization of the Asia Regional Site Steering
Committee for each site usually consists of the following members:
Honorary Chairs (Optional)
Chair (Regional Contest Site Director)
Co-Chairs (Asia Director is, by default, one of the Co-Chairs)
Committee Coordinator or Associate Site Director (optional)
Chief Judge and Judging Team
System (Hardware/Software) Chair(s)
Registration Chair and Publicity Chair
Activities/Operation Chair
The Steering Committee for each contest site may implement additional
rules and a different committee organization pertaining to the contest
site. However, the consultation with the Asia Contests Director is
strongly recommended prior to the establishment of such rules or
organization.
7. Each University or college in Asia can organize teams to
participate in the contests at any site. However, a contestant can
participate, at most, in two (2) Asian contest sites during a contest
year. A contestant may not compete in Asia Regional Contests for more
than five (5) years. A contestant may not compete in World Finals for
more than two (2) years.
8. National, Provincial, Invitational, and School Level Programming
Contests (these contests are together called Local Area contests):
(a) Each country or larger territory area may organize a national,
provincial, or invitational programming contest with its winners
advancing to the Regional Contest. If the area organizes such
contests, the area’s contest committee decides the number of teams to
participate in the Asia regional site contest.
(b) National, Provincial, and Invitational Contests under ACM – ICPC
banner must obtain approval from Asia Contests Director. These
contests must put registration process under ACM-ICPC registration
umbrella. These contests must follow ACM-ICPC guidelines.
(c) All National, Provincial and Invitational contests will be all
grouped together in an independent contest site in Asia Region titled
“Asia Provincial-National contests”. They will not be organized under
any particular Asia site effective from January 2009 and their winners
will not be advanced to World Finals.
(d) A University or college may have a School Level Programming
Contest, with its winners advancing to the Local Area Programming
Contest (or Asia Regional Contests). School level programming contest
using ACM-ICPC banner must also obtain permission from Asia Contests
Director.
(e) A team may participate in the Asia Regional Contest, bypassing the
School, provincial, national levels, with the approval of the Regional
Contest Site Director.
9. Asia First Round Regional and Asia On-Site Regional:
(a) ACM - ICPC Asia Region has grown substantially in recent years.
On-Site Regional Contest usually cannot accommodate large numbers of
teams. It is also mandatory that each site accommodates all of
qualified registrations. To accomplish such goal, it is strongly
recommended that each site conducts two cycles of regional contests –
Asia First Round and Asia On-Site. Each site should conduct Asia First
Round Regional Contest in advance to select an appropriate number of
teams for the On-Site regional contest. Those teams not selected for
the On-Site Regional Contest will be ranked as honorary mentioned
teams in the Regional Final Ranking. Each Contest Site Director may
set up its own selection formula for teams to be advanced to On-Site
Regional Contest. Contest Site Director may also modify contest rules
for the First Round Regional Contest within ICPC guidelines, while
On-Site Regional Contest must follow Asia Rules and ICPC Regional
Contest Rules. It is also recommended that foreign teams may be
exempted from First Round Regional Contest.
(b) If the total registration is low and all teams can be accommodated
by On-Site Regional Contest, the First Round Regional Contest may be
skipped. (The selection formula used by China sites in the Appendix 2
is a good reference for all.)
(c) Multi-provincial Online Internet Contest and National Contest
hosted by Asia Regional host university are considered as Asia First
Round Regional Contest if these contests are used to select teams for
Asia On-Site Regional Contest. These Contests will be under the Asia
Regional First Round Contest and not be grouped together with “Asia
Provincial/National Contests”.
10. Rule of Eligibility Decision Tree:
(a) All contestants are urged to study the rule of the Eligibility
Decision Tree in ACM - ICPC Regional Rules for the eligibility of all
contestants through out the world. (http://icpc.baylor.edu/)
(b) Remarks on eligibility rule:Technically, it is possible that a
team may consist of three first-year graduate students if each of them
meets the rule qualification in a four-year program or university.
(c) Participation of two sites for the same year in Asia Regional
Contests is considered as one-time competition under the eligibility
rule. (Refer to item 7.)
11. The coach of a team must be a faculty or a designated staff member
of the team’s university. A coach from outside of the team’s
university will disqualify the team.
12. Because of the problem of ‘no-shows’ by teams who register and
confirm participation but do not actually participate in the contest,
it was decided that: If such team do not cancel their registration at
least ten (10) days before the contest date, and do not show up in the
contest, this team's contestants will be disqualified for all other
contest sites in the same contest year.
13. Registration: The university name of a team must be already in the
ICPC registration database before a team can register. The team coach
should request the Contest Site Director to ask ICPC manager to enter
the Team’s university name in the database if needed. This
registration prerequiste applies to both Asia Regional and local
contests.
Asia Regional contest registration normally begins right after World
Finals in the same year. However, the Provincial-National contest
registration can begin as early as January of the same year.
14. RCD meeting in World Finals. Asia Regional Directors or their
representatives are required to participate the RCD (Regional Contest
Directors) meeting scheduled in the World Finals Contest during the
same calendar year. If a new Site Director or his/her representative
does not participate in the World Finals RCD meeting, the Asia
Director may cancel its hosting authorization of the same calendar
year.
15. Verification of the Asia On-Site Regional Contest: The coach of
each team is required to verify and complete the personal information
of all contestants before the contest of the Asia On-Site Regional
(Final Round Regional) contest. Without such verification, the team
will not be accepted for Asia On-Site or Asia Final Round contest and
therefore be disqualified.

(B) Regional Contest Winning Team, Award and World Finals Slots

1. The one winning team of each contest will automatically advance to
the World Contest Finals and will receive partial travel support from
ACM and its sponsors.
2. Additional wildcard berths in the World Finals may be awarded to
any contest team in a site with high registration count, at the
discretion of the Asia Contests Director. The winners of the local
area contests, national or provincial, are not qualified for World
Finals Slots unless they are also the winners of the Asia Regional
Contests.
3. A university or college can have at most one qualified team that
advances to the World Finals.
4. In an effort to encourage the participation of female students in
Asia Regional Contests, the Asia Regional Contests Director will award
each female contestant a cash award of $100 or more if (1) the team
has three female contestants; and (2) the team is ranked in the top 10
of actual ranking and is the best female team in that contest site.
5. Each Contest Site Director may rank the teams approximately in the
top half. The rest of the teams will be acknowledged in alphabetical
order, but not ranked. The final ranking of the top half should
combine the rankings of universities as well as teams. Final standings
will first be ranked from the top team from each university/college.
Other teams from the same college will then be ranked as ties with
that of the next ranked team of another university. Each Contest Site
Director may select the first 6 or more universities to award special
prizes or may apply some good criteria to award teams.
6. Team Members Substitution in World Finals and in Regional
Contest:The team members for the team advanced to World Finals must be
identical to the members participated in the Regional Contest. No
substitution or reserves will be allowed in the World Finals. Any
alteration on the team will disqualify the team to the World Finals.
However, Regional Contest may allow reserve team member registration
and may allow the substitution of the team member in the regional
contest provided that the team composition change is entered in the
ICPC registration web site before the Regional Contest. Any change to
the team after that regional contest is not allowed.
7. The score of each contest site for determining # of wild cards to
World Finals is calculated by ICPC Executive Director. The major
weights of the calculation are# of universities and # of teams
registered and accepted in that contest site, especially in the Onsite
Contest and also in the First Round Contest. Other factors calculated
with smaller weights are registration counts of Local Area Programming
contests near that contest site including National, Provincial, and
Invitational programming contests.
8. Teams (host teams) from host universities of Asia Regional sites do
not have preference for world final slots. If the host team’s score is
very high and is very close to the qualifying line, and if there is
slot available, Asia Director may at his discretion give preferences
to these host teams. (The policy of host teams from China is governed
by resolution of China Council in appendix 4.)
9. Asia Director will recommend the World Finals wildcard berths to
ICPC Executive Director.

(C) Conduct, Scoring of the Contest, and Team # Assignments.
1. Contestants may bring their own keyboards with the approval of
contest site director. The team is responsible for any trouble
installing its own keyboards. Contest Site Director may reject such
request.
2. Electronic dictionaries are not allowed. Paper dictionaries,
however, may be allowed. Contest Site Director may alter this rule;
The World Finals rule on reference materials may be different from
this rule.
3. No personally owned diskettes or calculators are allowed.
4. Questions or requests written in a language other than English may
be made from contestants to designated translators and then to judges.
Judges will respond to contestants directly in English.
5. Notification of accepted runs may be suspended at the appropriate
time (normally one hour before the end) to keep the final results
confidential for the purpose of suspension. Notification of rejected
runs will continue until the end of the contest.
6. It is recommended that the team numbers should be assigned randomly
before the contest. Team numbers should be used in PC^2. University
names should not be used in the PC^2 and should not be revealed to the
judging team during the contest. The Contest Site Director is
responsible for posting the matching list of team numbers and
university names in the audience area within 60 minutes after the
contest starts. Contest Site Directors may contact Asia Contests
Director to find out an efficient way of random assignment of team
numbers.
