CLICS is the Competitive Learning Initiative Contest System specification. The Competitive Learning Initiative is an effort under the auspices of the ICPC community to develop formal specifications for a variety of Programming Contest development activities. These specifications comprise a variety of components as described below.
=Contest Control System CCS Specification
This describes a set of functional requirements for a Contest Control System (CCS). It acts as the primary specification for CCS's which are candidates to be used for the ICPC World Finals, but also serves as a reference for the development of other CCS's as well.
This describes the requirements for specifying a Contest Problem to a Contest Control System (CCS). It is intended to describe how a Problem is presented to a CCS, not the nature of any particular problem itself.
