CS Games

Every Fall & Winter semester at Memorial University's Computer Science department a series of competitions are held, collectively known as the Mun CS Games.

General Rules:

Three skill testing problems are presented to the competitors whom have 150 minutes to submit working algorithm implementations to solved the challenges. The submissions are scored on a double blind basis, with the competitors scores tallied up at the end of the games and ranked according to points.

Implementation languages generally consist of Java, Python, or C++. It is asked of each competitor to include any make or build scripts required to compile their applications.

Each competitor has access to a terminal, and a local copy of the Java API. No external resources are allowed, however competitors may bring along text books.

The double blind scoring is achieved through a group of volunteer runners acting as the link between competitors and the judges. Points are scored for algorithms that satisfy a collection of expected outputs for given inputs (some input - output pairs are kept secret to the judges to ensure robust solutions are provided).
