To make FSTTCS more appealing to students there will be an algorithmic contest as part of the conference. The contest will be held in co-ordination with Algo Muse and is fully online. Algo Muse was started in 2010 by theory student-group of IIT Bombay. Since then they have conducted many contests and FSTTCS is happy to support this initiative. We hope attendees will find time to ponder over the puzzles during the event. There are also exciting prizes for top performers! Please visit the contest website.
Note: Interested participants are requested to submit the answers on the above mentioned link latest by 13th December'18 midnight.
