Regional Rules at ICPC Baylor Site

Online & Onsite Registration

To participate in the Online Contest & Onsite Contest, Registration in ICPC Baylor Site is compulsory.


  1. Every team should have a coach who is a faculty or staff member of the university where the contestants study and he/she alone can register a team.
  2. One coach can register multiple teams.
  3. Each team should have 3 members as contestants. The fourth can be a reserve. “Reserve” is one of the team members who have to be the substitute, in case one of the contestants are not able to participate in the Onsite Contest. It is compulsory that three registered members only can represent and participate in the Onsite Contest, if invited.  Reserve must also be registered in the ICPC System.
  4. Firstly, the coach has to register himself at the Baylor site, by giving his name, email ID, address, and phone number. He will add the contestants with their names and email IDs.
  5. It is compulsory that the Coaches must register with their college/institutional email ID. If they prefer, they can register with a non-university email ID, but send an email to icpc[at], from their own university email ID with (i) their name (ii) their registered email ID (iii) the names of the teams that they registered, if available. If they don’t have a university email ID, they can ask the head of their department or the principal to send us an email from a university email ID saying that “So-and-so is a faculty member at such-and-such college, and uses the email ID” Without satisfying this criterion no teams will be allowed to participate in the contest.

If email is not possible, the HoD or Principal can send us a paper letter on university letterhead to our email (scanned) or to:

Please ensure that there is no spelling mistake and the letters are in proper case. Under no circumstances, duplicate certificates will be issued.

  6. Based on the number of institutions participated, teams are invited to attend the Asia Amritapuri Onsite Regional Contest, which is the semi final round of the ICPC contest overall. The selection generally happens thus: All teams that have not even solved one problem are eliminated. From the remaining teams, the top team from each university campus is selected for the onsite contest. If there are still open seats, a second or even a third team is selected from universities who have (i) sent a large number of teams to the online contest and (ii) performed well overall in the online contest. Up to three teams from a single university campus may thus be selected. If a foreign team gets first place at the Amritapuri site, they are eligible to receive an invitation for the World Finals, but the final decision rests with ICPC Asia management.
  7. Please note that each contestant in a team can participate only upto a maximum of 2 sites in Asia Region.  If any contestant violate this rule, the team will be disqualified from participation.
