Welcome to the LSU High School Programming Contest web site!

Table of Contents:

The LSU Computer Science High School Programming Contest was held February 12, . We would like to thank all the schools that participated, all of the sponsors who supported the contest economically, the organizations that supplied facilities, and the volunteers who made it happen.


Sponsors

We would like to thank the following companies for their generous contributions:

  • Rhodia
  • Chevron

The economic support from these companies helped make the contest a success. Without this aid, the t-shirts, lunch, and prizes would not have been possible. We would like to thank Mr. Gattis for providing the lunch (great food just when we wanted it!).

Organizations

It takes a lot of cooperation to do something like the LSU Computer Science High School Programming Contest. We would like to thank the following campus organizations who worked together to make this happen:

  • Computer Science Department
  • Office of Computing Services
    • High Performance Computing
    • Office of Telecommunications
    • Technology Support Center

The Computer Science Department obviously hosts the contest and does all the pre-contest work (mailings, soliciting for money, scheduling, ...). We would like to thank the Office of Computing Services for use of facilites, the technical support to manage, configure, and customize the lab machines.

Thank you all!

Volunteers

It takes a lot of people to put on a contest like this. The Computer Science Department was blessed this year with a lot of very good volunteers and a (mostly) smoothly run contest. Here are some of the major people who were essential to the making this competition happen:

  • Kathryn Traxler (Computer Science) - Contest Coordinator, did all the mailings, handled all the preregistration, solicited all the funding and volunteers, coordinated everything, arranged/bought prizes, did the t-shirts, the lunch, helped develop the problems, wrote some of the solutions, reviewed documentation and just about everything else.
  • Sara Earl (Office of Telecommunications) - Software installation, machine configuration, and countless other services
  • Scott Delaney (Technology Support Center) - Software installation, machine configuration, and lab liaison.
  • Brian Ropers-Huilman (High Performance Computing) - Head Judge, trained the judges, helped with the machine configuration, co-designed and implemented submission and judging system, co-developed Language Specific Information, and much more.
  • Isaac Traxler (High Performance Computing) - Kathy's husband - 'nuff said
  • David Smith (Computer Science) - Wrote the scoring software.
  • Spring CSC 3999 Section 20 class - They have helped refine the problem set, provided solutions, and acted as judges and in many other capacities during the contest.
There are numerous other voluteers who need to be thanked. Here are some of the many volunteers that must appear for this contest to succeed:

  • Judges
  • Runners
  • Envelope Stuffers
  • Proof Readers (can never have enough of them)

Thank you all - and by the way, you can sign up to volunteer for next year right now!
