South Western Europe Regional ACM Programming Contest 2006. November, 17-19, 2006. Lisbon, Portugal.
|Mooshak system developed at
the Computer Science Department, University of Porto. This software is
web-based and behaves as a full contest manager as well as an automatic
judge for contests. It includes four main views:
The Mooshak system will run on:
Access to the Mooshak system is through login/password authentication. The
system has builtin safety measures to prevent users from interfering
with the normal progress of the contests. Submissions sent by teams
are evaluated by having the corresponding programs compiled and run in
a safe-process environment. Programs are only allowed a certain
amount of resources in terms of main memory, disk space and execution
time. If a program exceeds any default limit, it is canceled and a
submission message error is produced.
A fair number of redundancy schemes will be available.
Once you have made a submission, the result of the automatic judge should appear almost instantaneously. This result is initially marked as in pending state to indicate that it has to be confirmed by a judge person. Once confirmed, the submission result is marked final.
In about 99% of the cases the automatic judge makes a correct evaluation. We made a great effort to make everything consistent and robust, but problems may arise unexpectedly, such as a system resource failure, a mistake in a test case, etc. You shouldn't worry too much because the system is highly flexible in allowing the judges to re-evaluate submissions without a team being penalised for it, and thus undoing whatever went wrong first.
Please note: any attempt in sending too many adhoc submissions near the end of the contest will be interpreted as misconduct by the judges.
Please note: any attempt in loading documentation pages at an excessive rate will be interpreted as misconduct by the systems administrators and the judges.
Please be considerate to other teams and avoid questions that simply can not be answered (e.g. what is the output of judge's solution for the following input ...).
