ICPC Indian Regionals 2017

I was just going through this post http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_b946da100102wvei.html

According to it, we will have only one online round for all regionals. Also, what is “India-Finals” according to this blog?

Please someone explain what is the procedure for this year’s ICPC from India. Also, what are the tentative dates for the online and onsite rounds.

Thanks in advance.


Amritapuri has put up there schedule on website: https://www.amrita.edu/event/icpc However, It lists 2 contests under Onsite contests :s

While this topic is made, i also want to know where can i find dates of past icpc regionals held (onsite round) and till when dates are finalised for onsite rounds?
I just hope that there shall be sufficient sites having onsite rounds during Saturday/Sunday (for those that have exams during december…)


Came across this link today. Check it out.

I don’t know if all of it is true because the date of first online contest of Amritapuri given here(8th Oct) and one on the official site(6th Oct) is different.
Hope Codechef provides an official announcement to clear this out.


On the baylor website too dates are really confusing. Just waiting for codechef officials to update the page for ICPC 2017

    As mentioned by others, we have collated the rules here: https://www.codechef.com/icpc/2017 Some of the information is not yet available and it will be announced soon. Your queries can be asked here.


    The date of the first online contest of Amritapuri has changed on the official site. Its 8th Oct now i.e. there will only be one online round for all the 4 India regionals!

    This depends entirely on the RCD’s. You need to ask/convince them to allow this.

    This information is not accurate. You can find the dates and changed format here: https://www.codechef.com/icpc/2017

    Yes. there is going to be only one online contest for all for regionals now.

    The onsite dates are more or less finalised and they can be found here: https://www.codechef.com/icpc/2017

    Yes. It took us some time to get this data. But it is now here: https://www.codechef.com/icpc/2017

    You can find all the details here: https://www.codechef.com/icpc/2017 We will keep updating the page as and when we get more info.

    Are we allowed to cancel registration for a location @admin ?

    We registered for Amritapuri but haven’t paid yet ; Unforunately if selected won’t be able to attend onsite, so we want to cancel it and register for some other regionals.

    Is it possible ?

    Do we have to register for India-Finals separately or will there be a automatic qualification based on rank board of Onsite Round?
