The EGOI Scientific Committee (SC) invites the competitive programming community to submit problems for EGOI 2024.
EGOI is a programming competition for girls in secondary education all across Europe and invited countries.
The contest will take place between July 21 and 27, 2024 in Eindhoven Brainport, The Netherlands.
We are looking for problems of varying difficulties and types (batch, output-only, or interactive).
To get an idea of style and difficulty, see the problems from the previous two years, that is 2022 and 2023 (https://stats.egoi.org/tasks/).
Additionally, the topics and techniques used must conform to the IOI syllabus (https://ioinformatics.org/page/syllabus/12).
Any problem submitted to EGOI 2024 must consider the following criteria to be considered for acceptance:
We will be pleased to invite the authors of the selected problems to the contest. The authors are responsible for arranging their travel, but the costs for their stay will be covered by EGOI.
A problem submission must contain:
As additional recommendations:
Attach all files for one problem in a single ZIP archive and submit it to the SC at email@example.com. The SC will confirm the receipt of the submission via email. 10 tasks will be chosen from the submitted ones but only 8 will make it to the competition.
The problems accepted in the actual competition will be made available under a Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY) after the competition is over. Before that, authors must agree on granting EGOI an exclusive license to use the submitted material until (and including) July 27, 2024.
Additionally, authors warrant that problems, including additional provided material, won't be disclosed to any third party while the exclusive license is still in place.
This means that authors, their collaborators, and any other EGOI member or guest that has access to the accepted problems must not use a problem or any of its variants in any other competition or training until EGOI 2024 has ended.
If authors are involved in national trainings we expect them to not be biased in the way they select topics and problems.
In particular, it is ok if authors are involved in the national girls training.
Ideally, they discontinue this activities once their problem has been accepted to the competition. If this is not possibly for capacity reasons then it is acceptable to continue to train while taking extra care not to be influenced by the accepted problem.
This is done to guarantee the confidentiality of the problems and provide fair competition.
