At 7:00 PM, we will have a brief Welcome speech. ICPC Executive Director Bill Poucher will speak following the welcome. Next, we will have the formal review of the rules and procedures. Any and all questions will be taken at this time (hopefully answered also). It is important for all teams to be present during this time (if possible).
Teams will actually compete in the Coates Lab and several Middleton Library Labs. Team locations will be posted Saturday morning (7:00 AM).
Make sure you find out where you will be competing in time to make it to your spot by 9:15 AM. Saturday at 9:15 AM, the practice contest will start. When the Practice Contest is over, all teams should return to the Coates Auditorium. Lunch (planned sandwiches and colas) will be served and a last minute Rules Clarification Session will be held.
At noon, the contest will start and run for 5 hours. At 5:30 PM we will review the problem set at the Coates Auditorium. The Awards Banquet will take place next in the LSU Union Ballroomat 6:30 PM. .
During the contest (1:00 to 5:00), we would like to meet with the coaches. This year, we are interested in discussing the pros and cons of of a Distributed Contest for the region.
