PC² is the Programming Contest Control System developed at California State University, Sacramento in support of Computer Programming Contest activities of the ACM, and in particular the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest and its Regional Contests around the world.
Computer programming contest vary in their rules and methods for judging submissions. The following describes in a general way a contest where PC is used.
A computer programming contest is a competition where teams submit (computer program) solutions to judges. The teams are given a set of computer problems to solve in a limited amount of time (for example 5 hours). The judges then give a pass/fail judgement to the submitted solution which is sent back to the teams. The team rankings are computed based on the solutions, when the solutions were submitted and how many attempts were made to solve the problem. The judges testing is a Black box testing where the teams do not have access to the judges’ test data.
