[March 16th, 2010] Announcing Bubble Cup 2010
We are proud to announce 3rd edition of the Bubble Cup competition. The competition started locally, being aimed at Serbian students, and was designed as a training for the ACM ICPC. Starting 2009, the competition became regional, with Croatian and Romanian teams onboard.

Former competitors, please note that there are some changes in the rules in comparison with the last year, specifically in the grading system for the qualification rounds. Please visit the Rules section for more details. In short, each team will get bonus time for the finals, based on the number of problems solved in the qualification rounds, and each problem in the second round will be awarded with two points, instead of one point in previous online rounds.
