How do I register a team for the contest?
for the Pacific Region Contest is a two
you need to reserve a spot by registering your team(s) on-line with
ACM-ICPC - up to 6 teams per school, space permitting at the site you
attend. (See the link below)
you must confirm your registration by registering via PayPal or sending
to the Regional Director a check or money order with the registration
fee of $40
for each team (The confirmation
form can be printed from this
web site. See below.)
- Each team
must have a faculty
sponsor/advisor (who may also be the coach). Among other things, the sponsor's signature certifies
that the team members meet the contest eligibility requirements. The
sponsor or the coach (if s/he is a faculty member) must accompany the team to
the contest site. That is, each team must be accompanied by a faculty
member from their institution.
reservation must take place before Nov. 6 to be considered "on time". Teams who do not reserve by this date are considered
late and may NOT receive t-shirts, and may not be guaranteed a
place in the contest. (Checks must be received by Nov. 6, and are non-refundable.)
Until a check is received, your registration status is "pending" and
your team is NOT eligible to compete.
*NOTE: Team member names do NOT have to be entered at the time of
registration. HOWEVER, team names and COMPLETE info must be completed
by Nov. 6. Teams w/o complete team member information will be
ineligible to compete.
- STEP 0:
if you'd like a team to compete in D1 or D2. if you'd like the team to
compete in D2, place a D2 at the beginning of the team name.
- Division 1
(D1) is for teams that are very
strong algorithmically. The D1 problem set will be difficult.
It will be along the lines of a lite version of what you
would see at World Finals. Only D1 teams are
eligible for slots in the World Finals.
II (D2) is approachable for teams that
have not completed the algorithm sequence at their school and/or have
not competed in programming contests before.
Almost all problems in D2 can be solved using techniques at the CS1 and
CS2 levels. Most
teams in this
division have a great chance at solving many problems. If a
team does well in this division this year, that team should try D1 next

What happens when more teams want
to enter than there is space to
One of ACM and
our goals is to have as many schools
as possible compete in the Contest. Depending on the resources at the
volunteer host sites (How
My School Be a Volunteer Site?), it may
possible to register more than one team from a school.
In an attempt to be as fair as possible,
the Pacific NW Region has
adopted the following policy:
If more teams have requested to register
than there are slots
requests will be prioritized by postmark/payment date, through the
registration deadline. Each institution's #1 team will be registered,
then available slots will be filled by #2 teams, and then the #3 teams, etc., in the same order. Teams who have submitted their
registrations by the deadline will be notified of their status at this
- Teams whose registrations are
postmarked after the registration date will be placed in any remaining
slots, by the same algorithm. They will be notified as soon as possible
if slots are available.
Can a team register at the site on the
day of the Contest?
