Regional Programming Contest

Final Report

November 10, 2007

The 2007 ACM-ICPC East Central North America Regional Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC ECNA RPC) was held on Saturday November 10, 2007. We had 116 teams drawn from 67 colleges and universities throughout western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, eastern Ontario, and Indiana (excluding the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area). There was an additional 11 teams who had registered but did not participate and were canceled.

As it was difficult for some teams in the ECNA region to travel to a single site for the contest, the ECNA RPC was held as a distributed contest. There were four contest sites: Cincinnati Site in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA (30 teams from 16 schools); Michigan Site in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA (27 teams from 17 schools); McMaster Site in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (27 teams from 14 schools); and Youngstown Site in Youngstown, Ohio, USA (32 teams from 20 schools).

We are pleased to report that the ECNA RPC was a huge success this year. Here are a few comments and observations:

  1. Version 8.7 of the PC^2 Contest Control System was used to run the Contest. There were no technical problems and the contest went very smooth.

  2. The contest started at 10:00:07 EST and ended at 15:00:38 EST.

  3. The contest consisted of 8 problems with 91 teams solving at least one problem.

  4. The maximum number of problems solved was 8 problems.
