Introduction
Is your favorite programming language the best? Does it lead to better and faster programs? Does it make programs easy to write and modify? Are you and your friends the best programmers in the world?

Then prove it!

All programmers are invited to enter the contest, either individually or in teams. The contest offers direct, head-to-head comparison of language technology and programming skill. We have a range of prizes including unlimited bragging rights for the winners. The prizes will be awarded at ICFP 2004 in Snowbird, Utah this September.

Contest Overview
On Friday 4th June at 16:00 UTC (12:00 noon EDT), the programming task will be published on this web site. Teams will have 72 hours to write and submit a program to perform this task.

The programming contest is being conducted by ICFP, which has a desire to promote functional languages. However, rather than debate the definition of a "functional programming language," we will accept submissions implemented using any language whatsoever.
