The DWITE contest is starting up again for the school year with our
first round taking place on the 27th of October. A full schedule of
upcoming contest dates for the school year can be found on the
dwite.org webpage.

Team leaders may create new teams, add/remove members or sign teams up
for upcoming contests via the TeamCP (http://dwite.org/teamcp).

Feel free to contact me for help with or questions regarding
the registration process.


Have a great school year!

Also, I would like to add that the season is now back to the regular 5 rounds. I believe that this way the transition of the difficulty of the problems will be neither too gradual nor too steep.

I am glad to hear it. I would say that the best way to practice for this is to take a look at past contests. The questions tend to increase in difficulty as the rounds go by, possibly more so this year.

I can't wait for this year's contest to start. Last year was my first year, I failed miserably in the first few I entered, and didn't compete until round 4 or so, but by the end I was doing relatively decent, so I'm hoping that upwards trend continues!

I was wondering if anyone had any advice for working through those graph theory problems though. A lot of the time I know the algorithm I need to use to solve it, but I'm just not sure of the best way to implement it in the time given, although I've had some success with adjacency matrices. If anyone could point me towards a good reference on problems like that, I'd owe you one Very Happy

Well, a good book to get you started would be "Programming Challenges by Skiena and Revilla". I found a link that contains this book inline actually:
http://www.negrellischool.it/joomla/images/documenti/materiale/informatica/programmingchallenges.pdf

Also, you could take a look at the "Algorithmist", which is an online encyclopedia for algorithms: http://www.algorithmist.com/index.php/Main_Page

Thank you! I've only briefly glanced at that book so far, but it seems like just the thing I was looking for. The Algorithmist also looks like a great reference, and I've bookmarked that as well.

Well, there weren't prizes last year, but seeing as we've reduced the number of rounds to 5, I am not sure...I guess Dan will be able to answer that question with more certainty.

Unfortunately I won't be able to participate this year, because I'm no longer in high school (though if I did I'd still get schooled by the brilliant kids from Woburn and the other high-ranked schools).

Perhaps I can help Dan run it this year. How about it Dan?

Well, my dorm consists of one person from every one of such schools (well, everyone with the exception of me, as my school wasn't that great at CS): Aurick (Vincent Massey), John (Don Mills), Brian (Woburn).

I guess these are the schools that make me want to compete in such contests.

Hey guys,

Do you know how to sign for round 1 of the DWITE contest? I already have a team.

Thanks! Very Happy

"High school team leaders may now sign their teams up for contests via the TeamCP."

I believe you can register your team for a contest via the TeamCP link, at "Sign up for a contest".
