ACM SIGMOD 2022 Programming Contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students from degree-granting institutions all over the world. However, students associated with the organizers' institutions are not eligible to participate.
Teams must consist of individuals currently registered as graduate or undergraduate students at an accredited academic institution. A team may be formed by one or more students. There is no limit on team size. Students in a team need not to be enrolled at the same institution. Several teams from the same institution can compete independently. Teams can register on the contest site after 25 February 2022.
One person can be a member of only one team and one team can register for only one account. The organizers may video call teams to confirm identity if suspicious behaviors are detected. In addition, submitted solutions will be saved and inspected to detect duplicates. If mis-behaviors are confirmed, the related teams will be removed.
All submissions must consist only of code written by the team or open source licensed software (i.e., using an OSI-approved license). For source code from books or public articles, clear reference and attribution must be made.
Final submissions must be made by 30 April 2022 (Eastern Standard Time).
All teams must agree to license their code under an OSI-approved open source license. By participating in this contest, each team agrees to publish its source code. The finalists' implementations will be made public on the contest website.
