The 2019 ACM North Central North America
Regional Programming Contest
Try to register online at the ACM Regional Contest web site by October 14, 2019 which is the end of Early Registration. Up to this date, the priority of the sites is to maximize the number of schools represented, and thus may restrict the number of teams per school in order to ensure this. Following this date, sites may decide to accept additional teams per school, up to their capacity.
If you must register after October 9, 2018, a late fee of $10 (US) per person on top the registration fee of $25 per person will be assessed at the time the team is accepted by the site. (Do not pay until your team is accepted!) Note that the late fee is assessed only if registration is late, not if acceptance by the site is delayed.
Before November 3, 2019, it is suggested to contact the director of the site at which your team will participate to obtain any site-specific information and a pre/post contest activity schedule.
