Thanks! I'll link to it in the menu bar. It's what I've meant to put, but haven't gotten to it. Larry 12:52, 26 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Excellent!! --dplass 09:45, 30 Apr 2005 (EDT)

PKU 2005 doesn't open until 7/31 not 7/27 --dplass 11:13, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)

And... the SRM "start time" of 1pm GMT is the registration start time, not the SRM start time. --dplass 11:15, 27 Jul 2005 (EDT)

There will be online verison of IOI this saturaday/sunday and on monday/tuesday http://contest.ioi2005.pl/ -- roticv 3:56 GMT +0800 18 August

Feel free to stick it in! Larry 08:24, 18 Aug 2005 (EDT)

I really like the new format, keep up the good work.


I don't know much about how Wiki works, but considering that the preferences page lets you choose your time zone, is it possible to enter dates and times in such a way that they will be displayed to the user in his time zone? That would be ideal!

I've been looking for it, so of course, if you come across them, I would be happy to change it! Larry 19:41, 7 Dec 2005 (EST)

Feel free to add more contest links! Larry 17:10, 8 Dec 2005 (EST)

I'm wondering if it's right for our CMI's contest to be here on this page -- we're only allowing participants from India, and isn't this page only for international contests? (And would it be okay to include Google Code Jam China, for example?) --Aboyner 04:54, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)

I'd prefer to keep the calendar only including international, but I am only one voice. --Rrenaud 09:51, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)

Does the wiki support localized times? So for example, if we always put the times in a certain way, then users could set their timezone in the preferences, and then all times would be displayed as local to users? --Rrenaud 09:51, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)

I had exactly the same question, see a few lines above ;)
Unfortunately, the answer seems to be no (AFAIK).
Also, I've commented out the CMI contest, some admin should decide whether such things are appropriate or not. --Aboyner 11:23, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)
I haven't seen anything to it (the localized time), though if there is, let me know. As for the contests, I don't mind, as long as it's clearly labelled as such.. --Larry 14:42, 12 Jan 2006 (EST)
The link to the worldclock for the TopCoder SRMs is a very nice idea. Thanks. --Shalinmangar 08:47, 29 Jan 2006 (EST)
You're welcome :)
We could also do this for all times (the TC time links are already available on the SRM details pages, but for other times we must set them ourselves), but I think it will be worth the effort. Aboyner 10:56, 29 Jan 2006 (EST)
Done. --Shalinmangar 03:09, 30 Jan 2006 (EST)

Shouldn't we use UTC everywhere on this page, instead of GMT? (I had half a mind to change it myself, but I figured it would just be vandalism :) --Aboyner 01:29, 3 Feb 2006 (EST)

How about we separate "current" contests (like SPOJ's Open Contest or TopCoder's Intel Multithreading events) and "future" contests (like TopCoder SRMs?). Perhaps also standardize what's already listed? Sartak 01:19, 23 Mar 2006 (EST)

Standardize is nice, and it is the case, usually. I'm going to create a wiki template so it'll be straightforward (though I'll have to look into it again).

I think something like making the "current" events bold or italics should be good enough (correct me if it's just me!) =) Larry 09:26, 23 Mar 2006 (EST)


Google Calendar - Perhaps we should write something like [1] (which would be trivial) for MediaWiki specs. Would take care of time zone problems too. Larry 18:47, 28 Apr 2006 (EDT)

More contests[edit]

I got recently this list of programming contests: http://michael.rybak.googlepages.com/sites.txt . My friend found it on topcoder forums. If someone have a bit of time he can check few entries from this list and add them here (I know that there is at least one contest holded recently which you could find on this list and couldn't find on agloritmist's callendar).

Suggestion to move 'Where we get this information'[edit]

This list has become quite big now, we should probably move it to its own page.

Seconded. I was thinking about this, actually. Larry 20:56, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Good site[edit]

This page is giving many info about the Coding contests. Thank you. I added one of the coding contest which I am competing. :) Thank you. :) - Surya (India)
