Countless authors, including J.K. Rowling and any student with a thesis submission deadline, have at some point in their careers suffered from writer's block. Indeed, in the words of William Goldman, "The easiest thing to do on earth is not write". A common remedy is procrastination, more specifically folding the paper you should be writing upon. Your task this year is to write a computer program, which will automate this paper folding and enable prominent authors to get back to work.
Ready to go? Here's the task!
To be fair, here are the problems and scoring program that we'll be using to judge your software:
- Scoring and Visualization Tools: Windows version; Linux version.
- Judging Problem Suite (Encrypted - password will be provided after the event)
Through this form you can upload and check your submissions during the competition (as
files). A single competition entry program is to be called origasmi.
You can submit an unlimited number of solutions throughout the
weekend.The last submission on Sunday, 1st Dec 2013 at 20:00 ZST will be
considered for the prize. After these times no corrections or
resubmissions will be allowed. Submissions can only be done through the
programming challenge website. There is no strict requirement about
which programming language to use, but in the case of languages not
mentioned in Table 2 an executable file which runs on either Ubuntu
Linux 12.04.2 (64-bit) or Windows Server 2012 (64-bit) should be
provided (you have to specify which).
