Starting the contest

You can click the View details button to display the Submission details pop-up, breaking down the submission's score. The pop-up also displays any compiler output (where applicable), including warnings and compilation errors.
Clarifications and announcements

In case the judges need to announce anything, the announcements will appear on this page.
