The competition consists of two rounds including code contest and AI tournament. In the code contest, each team will write a program to solve the problem given by the Organizing Committee by using their chosen programming language. Players’ programs will then be submitted to the system to be tested. The program will be accepted if it passes all of the test cases.
In the AI Tournament, players will program BOTs based on the given subjects with inputs/outputs specified by the Organizing Committee. Periodically, during the exam, the Organizing Committee will set up tournaments among all BOTS for the purpose of classification. Scores will be recorded according to their respective ranks.
