1) Who will provide the computers for the contest?

LSU will provide all the computer systems that will be used by competitors and judges during the contest. The contest will be held in public lab facilities that are normally available to all LSU students (except during special events like this).

2) What will the computers be?

All systems will be Pentiums running at 500 MHz or faster. All systems will have at least 256 MB of memory and 17" monitors. All systems will run Windows NT 4 or Windows 2000.

3) What software will be available?

During the contest, only the approved languages (IBM Visual Age C/C++, IBM Java, and Borland Delphi) will be available as programming languages (Microsoft Visual C/C++, and GNU C/C++ will NOT be available). The Internet will NOT be accessible. If anyone has any software requests (such as favorite editors), please send e-mail to contest@contest.csc.lsu.edu. As new items are defined as available, I will list them here.

4) Can I get the software before the contest?

Yes - after a team pays its fees, the software will be mailed to the team.

5) What may the teams bring?

Teams may bring in any reference materials they desire as long as:

  • Materials can not be machine readable
  • Materials may not be used to calculate (books of tables are okay)
  • Materials may not produce irritation to other teams or disrupt the competition in any way

6) When can we use the computers before the contest?

The schedule now has the Coates Computer Lab reserved Friday from 4:30 PM until 10:00 PM (there will be a couple of other things during that time to tear you away). You will also have the practice contest Saturday morning.

7) What is the registration process?

  • Your coach will visit South Central Region Web Site and register you. The coach will need to register the school and then add the team. This will put the team in a "pending" state.
  • When the coach sends the payment in, the team will be moved to an "accepted" state.
  • When you arrive at LSU, go to the registration table. Here you will get your Registration Packets that will include copies of the rules, t-shirts, banquet tickets and all kinds of other stuff.

8) Who do we make out the check or money order for the contest fee?

Please make all checks payable to CSC Programming Contest. This is very important! You should send your check or money order to the following address:

LSU Computer Science Department
