Final Report

November 5, 2016

The 2016 ACM ICPC East Central North America Regional Programming Contest (ACM ICPC ECNA RPC) was held on Saturday, October 29, 2016. We had 123 teams from 49 colleges and universities throughout western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, eastern Ontario, and Indiana (excluding the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area). Three additional teams registered for the contest but did not attend.

As it was difficult for some teams in the ECNA region to travel to a single site for the contest, the ECNA RPC was held as a distributed contest. There were four contest sites:

The ECNA RPC was successful, with no issues of note. Some observations:


There were no issues of note during the contest.

During the practice contest, it was noted that the Eclipse debugger was not working; a solution was found and implemented during the practice contest.

Late in the practice contest, it was noted that Eclipse was very slow on certain machines. Systems staff identified a video driver as the possible cause; switching to a vendor-supplied driver improved the situation.
