2006 ICFP Programming Contest registration opens
Registration is now open for the 9th Annual ICFP Programming Contest!
The contest, associated with the International Conference on Functional Programming, will be held on the weekend of July 21-24. The contest task will be released at noon EDT on Friday, and entries will be accepted until noon EDT on Monday. Registration is free and open to all. Teams may participate from any location, and may use any programming language(s). Last year, 360 participants formed 161 teams from 26 countries.
Prize money totaling $1750 US will be awarded to help defray the costs of travel to the conference for the winners and for small cash prizes. In addition, the winners of the contest will receive bragging rights for the programming language of their choice. This makes the contest a popular avenue for demonstrating the superiority of a favorite language, or for exercising an experimental tool.
Though the specifics are secret until the contest begins, we promise that this year's task will be very different from past competitions. This year's theme is "computational archaeolinguistics."
Stay tuned for more information as the contest approaches!
