This is a reminder that the ICFP Programming Contest 2011 will be starting in two weeks. See: http://www.icfpcontest.org/2011/05/contest-announcement.html
Participants would need to prepare some virtual (or physical) machine running Debian squeeze for amd64. See: http://www.icfpcontest.org/2011/05/judges-machine-and-system-environment.html (You would only need an environment compatible with the guest, not the host. There exists various virtual machine software such as VirtualBox and VMware Player.)
[Update on June 3: Participants would also need a WWW server to put their submission online (perhaps with an unpublished URL), which we will download (and install, after checking its sha512sum) in up to a few days after the contest ends.]
[Update on June 6: If you do not have your own server, just use any free service (if it is public, upload your submission just after the contest has finished: you will only have to submit the URL and sha512sum of your submission in advance).]
We look forward to your participation!
