Contest Description

Teams will be given a set of problems of varying difficulty to solve in the three hour time limit. The team that solves the most problems in the shortest amount of time will be declared the winner. Teams may enter in either of the divisions.

Problems will be judged on your machine, so there should be no outside access to your hardware and little or no "virus" trouble.
