ONIS has the same format as the prestigious ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, in which a team composed of 3 students must use a single computer to implement the solutions to the specified programming problems. This year, for the teams in Timisoara the results at ONIS counted also as local heat results for the ACM-ICPC contest in order to qualify to the next round, i.e. ACM-ICPC national heat.
