TopCoder Open

Today I discovered that TopCoder is hosting an interesting marathon match over the next month. The problem is pretty simple:

Input: list of edges
Output: vertex locations
Goal: minimize number of edge intersections

There is an online scoreboard which shows your ranking after each submission. I was in last place after my first submission. My second submission was quite an improvement and put me in second place =)
