Facilities  We will provide Pentium-class systems. Each team will be provided one system for use during the contest. We will attempt to make each system as equal as possible (typical system is an IBM Pentium 4 based system running at 2 GHz or better, with a 17-inch monitor). Each team will be provided one system for use during the contest. (Actually, many machines have been upgraded. I will update minimum specs eventually).
Software  We are planning to run Linux. See the contest environment page for more details about the software to be used.
Judging  We plan to use the PC^2 software as we did last year.
