Rules on Team Notebooks
(as of October 16, 2009)

A team is allowed to bring into the contest area, three copies of a team notebook, one copy for each contestant.

The notebook must be a three-ring binder that can hold 8.5" x 11" letter-size pages. Each notebook should have the name of the school and the name of the team prominently indicated on its front cover.

The notebook must have four sections, each section starting with a tabbed divider, labeled


NOTES -- contains at most four (4) pages of single-sided hand-written notes.

HANDOUTS -- contains only those handouts provided by the Asia-Manila ICPC staff. These handouts may include hand-written comments and corrections.

REFERENCE -- contains up to twenty-five pages of printed notes, single spaced, in 12 point font of the team's choice, with one-inch margins on all sides. These notes must be the same for all three members of the team.

WORK -- contains a reasonable number, but not more than 100 pages, of blank bond paper and graphing paper, all letter-size, for the team member to use as scratch papers during the contest.
The notebook may have a plastic pouch containing pencils, pens, erasers, ruler, compass, protractor, and triangles.

The team members may not bring a calculator to the contest.

Each team member may bring a dictionary for translation purposes. The only marking allowed on the dictionary is the identity of the owner.

Clarification (issued on Oct. 18, 2009): A page is defined as one side of a bond paper. So one bond paper with a back-to-back print is considered two pages.
