Amritapuri is allowing us to register here. Not sure if this is intended but this seems to be for 2022-23 season.
Shouldn't we be registering for 2021-22?

    I don't want to set off any alarm bells, but my best guess is that it may be skipped :/ I did mail Amritapuri regarding the same but haven't gotten any response yet.

    There have been no updates on the ICPC site about regionals rules for 2022 (it says that it would be updated by September here). I sent ICPC Baylor an email a couple of days ago about eligibility of 2022 grads, and this is what I got:

    It is more likely that someone else (from another university) has registered your email under their team. You need to see in your profile if there is any invites pending. Also see which university your coach is registered under.

    There have been instances when there were multiple entries for same university!

    No team member on the qualifying team may have competed as a contestant in two previous ICPC World Finals

    It means that your team should not have a member who already participated in two world finals before (Not necessarily consecutive).

    If you already been to two world finals You cannot participate in third one.

    For example tourist participated in world finals 2013 and 2015 so now he cannot participate in ICPC WF for third time

Okay so there are a lot of confusions at this point. Please clear any if you can:

  1. We should technically select 2021-22 as the year while registering for ICPC as that is the latest year, why is 2022-23 available as well?

  2. Why is the registration of ICPC Amritapuri site open under 2021-22 but ICPC Kanpur site open under 2022-23?

  3. Last year the count of teams who had registered for ICPC Amritapuri were clearly shown on the page. Moreover there was also a list of teams available. This year, the count was 1 when ICPC Amritapuri was under the year 2022-23, but now its 0 when its under 2021-22. Is the count not increasing or are the teams unable to register on the site?

  4. ICPC Amritapuri prelims was announced to be held on 21st August this year (We got a mail regarding the same). Since there are only 2 weeks left, is it possible that they might postpone the round since the registration is so unclear?

I am tagging Ashishgup here as he was looking for problemsetters for ICPC India. Can you please look into these questions and clarify it for us at the earliest if you know something?

    I can clarify for Amritapuri. Please register under year 2021-22. They updated it as other regionals were also under the same year. For more details, read here — https://www.amrita.edu/events/icpc-2021/

    For Kanpur, try mailing them for a clarification.

    IMO, teams count etc starts showing up once the team is accepted. There maybe many teams applied but they might not have started accepting yet.

    Amritapuri online round date is still same. No plan to postpone as of now!

You can't register for 3(Hope there are 3 regionals happening at least). For 2022-23 regionals, it would be happening after few months, you can register then! And that would be independent of this one!

  Vote: I like it +136 Vote: I do not like it

Why has Amritapuri reduced so many onsite slots this year? Only 135 teams for the onsite contest, while also having the top team from each institute rule simply means 1 team per institute, which is absolutely unfair. (There surely are more than 135 institutes in the online round.). This rule can mean a top-10 team may not qualify for the regionals if they happen to have another strong team in their institute, which is ridiculous to say the least.

Vichitr any chance this can be revised? In my opinion, at least slots should be reserved for the top 100 or so teams before starting applying that rule. And seats should be increased. There used to be 250 or so seats in this regional afaik.

    Hey it is decided based on a lot of factors like accommodation availability, number of registrations etc. It seems there would be hardly 300-400 teams registered. Current count is something around 250. Hardly 100 unique colleges.

    IMO it doesn't make any sense to me to qualify almost half teams to Regional round!

    And the ICPC rules are made to increase the number of different colleges participation. Refer any other site! Amrita used to just consider top teams because there were more slots. But that wont work this time!

      This is such a careless and sad reply. Can you mention why you think only 400 teams would register? Around 90 teams at IITM itself have opted to register for Amritapuri and would be completing the payment in the next few days.

      If we would have known that only 1 team from a college would go to the regionals, we would just have waited for other regionals. The information regarding these so low seats was just updated on the website today which is too late.

      As _Enigma__ has suggested above, please at least have the number of teams in the regionals to be 50-70 more than the number of unique colleges so that atleast the top 100 get to attend the regionals. ICPC regionals is a very important event for us.

        Yes, this is very concerning. It is possible that even a top 10 team in the qualification round will not be able to qualify to the regionals.

        I sincerely hope that you can try your best to increase the number of seats for the regionals, or atleast have some rank better than which a team gets selected irrespective of the Institute Rank. Otherwise it would just result in poorer representation from the country overall.

        Thank you

        It is decided based on other factors as well. These are major reasons: Staggered semester, lack of accommodation, date constraints, all put together, it is really challenging for Regional sites!

          This is pretty sad to hear, I handle registrations for IIIT-H and out of those 95 teams many teams have asked me if it's possible to cancel their registration after hearing this news. It's clear that way more than 300-400 teams must have registered for Amrita.

          We hold team contests over the span of the year and teams have spent many hours training for ICPC and it's sad that they won't even get a chance to make it to a regional. Amrita as a site pulls in the most participation every year and this change affects us a lot. ICPC is a big event for us as well and this is very disheartening :(

          If increasing slots is not an option at least consider applying the top team per institute rule after a certain rank in the main ranklist as _Enigma__, Blitztage and others have suggested. Thank you :)

Suppose we register for Amritapuri and Kanpur prelims, and we fail to make it to Amritapuri regionals. Then if Gwalior or Kharagpur prelims are announced later, will we be able to register for those? Basically what I'm asking is that the cap of 2 regionals is only valid if you qualify for the regionals or is it valid for prelims too?

    I seriously hope the committee reviews the selection rules and number of slots. While I understand some of their concerns, I also believe that contestants will not mind even some delays (already delayed by a year lol) if they can change the rules a bit.

    An offline regional after so long should not be marred by such issues.

    Edit: Also, if they are thinking of reviewing rules, they might as well declare it before the online round so teams are well informed. However, in case they don't I would say teams should not assume anything and do their best and hope rules change.

    Strongly agree, we registered for the previous dates because we were fine with the schedule. Now they are shifting schedules randomly, putting dates in between festivals(Durga Puja/Dusshera), and whatnot. How can you just expect to change the dates and that all the participants will be fine with it? You're playing with our religious sentiments, the efforts we have put for ICPC, not to mention the fact that the 2 regionals are so close to each other, its almost impossible to travel to both locations one after another, especially considering sky-high ticket prices and scarcity during the festival times. Really requesting the management to reconsider postponing the contests to a more suitable date so that everyone can have a more fair ICPC.

      Vichitr the current regionals dates are clashing with the major festivals of India. How can you expect that people will be fine with it.

      Please postpone the regionals date.

If there was supposed to be only one preliminary, atleast you guys should've put a little more effort in preparing the Practice session T_T

    Yes. It’s actually sad that a contest which takes 900 rupees from more than 2000 teams is so terribly executed. Adding to that, it’s completely online.

    I didn't see any issue with practice round. Can you elaborate what could have been improved there?

    Practice round is not for great problems, its just to check platform works fine and candidates make sure, all good for them so that they don't have issues during actual round!

    If you are suggesting to use original problems in practice round, then i don't remember any ICPC India history where practice session used new problems. On top of it, there are not many active Indian setters who contribute back to ICPC problem setting. We tried our best to get setters from other places too but still we have a lot of problems needed even for Onsite rounds so we obviously won't waste our new problems in practice round.

    Hope you could understand how much efforts are put to prepare a smooth and good round.

Can't you take part if you haven't registered at icpc global? We have registered on google form and paid the registration fees before deadline, but we missed registering on icpc global since it was showing closed even when there was still time remain before deadline, so we thought that it is yet to open. For Gwalior Pune region

Hey!, first time participating and I have a doubt. For the online round, Should all the members of a team make individual submissions for a given problem or does submission from 1 member counts as the submission of the group? Thanks

Have any of the regional sites released information regarding the following?

  • The final number of slots the regional will have.

  • The selection criteria for the regional (examples: first team from each college, top x then first from each college, etc)

  • Criteria by which site preference will be handled (for multi-site regionals).

The number of unique colleges is more than the available number of slots for Amritpuri so how do they allocate them? Vichitr

    Nope every region has different number of slots for World Finals and Asia West Finals(Not sure if it will happen though). One thing is common, the winner team of each regional directly goes to world finals but there are some rules in case the same team wins at multiple regionals.
