This year, the New Zealand Programming Contest (NZPC) will be held at 2pm on Saturday 19 August. This contest is in preparation for the Regional ACM Programming Contest, which will be held later in the year. 

A registration fee is required for entering in the NZPC contest. The department is supporting the registration fees for all University of Auckland teams with at least one Computer Science of Software Engineering member entering in the NZPC contest. Note: only a few will receive department support for the ACM contest, so a strong performance in the New Zealand contest will help your selection chances.

Each team MUST CONTAIN THREE STUDENTS (which may include graduate students) from the same university. The allowed programming languages are Java, C++, Python, and C#.
