Please submit a static binary as it helps with portability.
Each team is allowed to submit a single binary compiled on Cent OS (or Redhat) 6.2 and glibc.2_12. This executable binary should successfully run on all the designs in the benchmarks.
The submitted work can be either single threaded or multi-threaded version.
In order to continue the contest, the contestants must complete at least one alpha submission during the alpha submission periods from January 27, 2015 to February 15, 2015. Teams that do not submit any alpha executable by February 15, 2015, will be disqualified from the contest.
The final deadline for submitting the executable is March 20, 2015.
No pre-computed information can be used to influence the current run. The run directory will be cleaned prior to each run.
The officially supported programming language will be C/C++, version 4.6.1 (and GLIBC 2_12). For other languages, please check with the contest organizers first.
