This is an online event. Participation is possible from anywhere in the world.

  • Bytecode is a 5 hour ACM ICPC style algorithm intensive online programming competition.
  • We put up problem statements that define what is the input to your program and what it must output.
  • You write programs that do the necessary processing / transformation from input to output.
  • You submit the programs to our online judge (which is an automated checker).
  • The Judge instantly checks if your program works fine, by testing it with several inputs.
  • The Judge gives you a response.
  • The objective is to solve problems and score maximal total points.

Link to Bytecode 2011:



  • A team may consist of a maximum of 3 members (not necessarily from the same institute).
  • The final ranking is based on the total number of problems solved, ties broken by the total time consumed.
  • The total time is the sum of the time consumed for each solved problem.
  • The time consumed for a solved problem is the time elapsed from the beginning of the contest to the submission of the first accepted run for that problem (in minutes) plus 20 minutes for every other run for that problem before the accepted one. For an unsolved problem no time consumed is computed.
  • There is no partial credit for any problem.
  • After running a program against our testdata, the judge produces a status message. This is also output to the user.
  • No system calls are allowed other than input output routines.
  • In case of any discrepancies, the organisers' decision will be final.
  • List of languages allowed: C, C++, C#, Java, PHP, Perl, Ruby, Python, Haskell, Clojure and Scala.
