To name few problems come to mind..

10092 The Problem with the Problem Setter
10380 Shogi Tournament
563 Crimewave (Which is identical to an exercise in CLR network flow chapter)

Of course there should be more. :)

Some Max Flow problems:

10092 - the problem with the problem setter
10249 - the grand dinner (btw, Max Flow will be too slow to pass TLE)

Some Max Bipartite Matching problem (Max Flow variant):

670 - the dog task
753 - a plug for unix
10080 - gopher 2

There may be several more... I'm still searching...
refer to my website for a more complete problem classifications
(the list is still (and will always) growing) ... egory.html

What can be optimized about the Edmond-Karp? I've gotten TLE on Gopher II and it's running really slowly..

Change algorithm :-) Lift to front is lots faster.

i use ford fulkerson with DFS for augmenting path (worse than edmond -karp ) and got AC in not more than 0.4 sec. perhaps something wrong with your implementation?

Kalo mau kaya, buat apa sekolah?
