Contests

Policy regarding prizes: Any team consisting of any non-FooBar member would not be eligible for any prizes. If a team with non-FooBar member is a contest winner, then that team becomes eligible to join FooBar after that contest and may win prizes from the next contest onward.

Policy regarding plagiarism: Zero tolerance policy regarding plagiarism! Any act of plagiarism occurred during or after the contest (or in practice server) will be seriously dealt with. The first occurrence will lead to disqualification from a contest, while the 2nd occurrence will lead to permanent ban from FooBar (and some extreme actions might be taken in addition to it).

Changes in ProSort from Monsoon'16: Now we are gonna have 2-division Prosorts (Div 1 and Div 2). The organizers will make 6 problems (A,B,C,D,E,F) [increasing difficulty in order] and have the first 4 problems in Div2 (for non-foobar members, recruitment contest) and the last 4 problems in Div1 (for foobar members, "Attendance-taken" contest).
