Tournament Dates, Rules, and Submission of Work

Tournament begins 11:59PM on Saturday, June 7 and ends at 11:59PM on Wednesday, June 11. Machine: gauss.ececs.uc.edu, Port:8180. Standings are updated every three minutes and can be viewed by pointing your browser to http://gauss.ececs.uc.edu/standings8180.html.

Rules are as follows: You are free to cheat, steal, rob, smash, cream, and destroy any opponent. Just do not cause any physical damage or deny service or plant a virus that will infect non-players on any machine. Planting a successful virus on an opponent is encouraged and will be rewarded with a higher grade.

If you have lost your cookie you may email franco@gauss.ececs.uc.edu for a new one (and password, even). But I will take my time to allow the thief to make out big with your identity. If you need a cookie more than five times you will be sacked from the tournament. After the tournament you will be tied upside down to a lamp post and all participants will be allowed to throw water balloons at you until you drown.

Project submissions are due no later than midnight, Friday, June 13 and should be sent, bundled as a single ascii text file, to franco@gauss.ececs.uc.edu. Submissions must include the following:

  1. No more than about 1000 words describing what the software does, particularly any novel parts that were not required.
  2. Complete source code.
  3. Clear and easily visible instructions for setting up and using the code.
  4. In case several people worked on the project, describe the efforts of each. State which classes and functions were developed by whom.
  5. Only one submission per group is necessary. Be sure to include the names, handles, and identifying numbers of all participants in some visible location.

Failure to abide by the statement above will almost certainly result in a lower grade.
