The Algolympics is an annual intercollegiate programming competition open to all interested schools, colleges and universities in the Philippines. On its eighth year, the event is co-presented by Accenture Philippines, Calibr8, and Navitaire - an Amadeus Company. It is also sponsored by Flexisource IT.
For this year, the contest will be split into two: an elimination round and a final round. The elimination round is a free-to-enter round of Algolympics held on Codeforces while the final round is the event where teams that fit the criteria laid out in the rules and mechanics compete for the prize, in exchange for a minimal registration fee.
The online elimination round will run from February 12, 8:00 PM to February 22, 8:00 PM. Those who passed will be invited to the final round, which will then be held on March 20, 2021.
The program flow for the final round will be provided to all participants who qualify to compete in the final round.
