Description: The Internet Problem Solving Contest (IPSC) is a computer programming contest for teams consisting of up to three people. Teams participate via the Internet. Each problem consists of a problem description and two input data sets. Questions tend towards operations research, number theory, computer science, and game theory. Past challenges have included Calls, Arranging Flowers, Dependency Problems, Folding the Paper, Load Balancing, (un)Fair Play, and Hard Question - P = NP?
