It's the "Newbie Problemsetters" again. As usual, we are having our online programming contest on the last Saturday of the year, and we look forward to seeing you all then.

In our contest, you do not need to know very hard algorithms. All you need here is simply a clear mind and some basic knowledge of programming. For example:

- Basics of Data Structures
- Sorting and Searching
- Simple Maths
- Recursion and Backtracking
- Graph Traversing
- and Elementary Dynamic Programming

Our contest will have 6+1 tasks. We would expect even beginners to be able to solve at least a couple of them within the 4-hour duration. (Of course there will be one or two not-so-easy tasks to keep more advanced contestants busy~)

We invite everyone interested in programming to join our contest. You won't be disappointed. Please also help us to promote this contest!!! :-)

P.S. If I want to put a notice about this contest in Topcoder forum, do I need to register a Topcoder account first?
