Computer PlatformDuring the contest one desktop computer will be available per team, running a standard installation of Ubuntu Linux. All necessary software and the problem statements will be pre-installed. In your home directory you will find a beginning directory structure to organize your work and initial problem frameworks such as parsers.
You will be allowed to bring in any written or printed materials, but no electronic storage media or computing devices. (If you have a preferred VIM or Emacs configuration, you will need to print them out beforehand and type them in.) Whatever you bring in shall stay in the room until you decide to leave the room at the end of the day.
You will not have any internet or phone access during the competition, and you are expected not to discuss any questions with colleagues other than your team member.
