Welcome to the 2009 ACM ICPC South Central USA Regional Collegiate Programming Contest.
The date for this year's contest is: November 6-7, 2009
We are all expecting an exceptional contest again this year!

So the night before the contest we will run a 3 hour contest with a set of problems. We will only allow submissions in the supported scripting languages. Even if scripting is not your thing, this is a great opportunity to learn the environment and the submission system.
The goal of this contest is to have real competitors compete in scripting solving real problems. We will then attempt to compare problem solving rates, times to solution, problems solved, etc. between the scripting contest and the real contest the next day. While these contests are not identical (3 hours vs. 5 hours, fun vs. serious, ...). But we have to start somewhere. Here is your chance to impact the future directions of ICPC.
