Students-programmers from Belarus and Russia will gather in YKSUG


Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno together with MISIS and MIPT will hold "International training camp for problem-solving of programming competitions" under the patronage of Moscow ACM ICPC Workshops" from 15 to 24 August 2016.

22 students from Belarus and Russia will participate in the master classes. They will be trained by five tutors from MISIS “National University of Science and Technology”, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno.

Classes will be conducted in two divisions: "A" and "B". Each organized into 4 thematic days of lectures and practical classes and 4 days of team contest competitions. The training program includes such topics as number theory, game theory, string algorithms and data structures.

The training is aimed at improving the level of training of students in information technology and preparing children for the world programming contests. So, in this October, teams of students will go to the quarter-finals of one of the most prestigious Championships in the International student collegiate programming contest ACM/ICPC. At the end of the quarter-finals the best teams advance to the semifinals and then the finals, which will take place in spring 2017. The winners will not only receive well-deserved diplomas and other awards, but also offers to start a career in the largest IT companies in the world.


International student academic competition on programming of ACM/ICPC (world programming championship/international team championship on programming) is being held annually since 1977 and it is the largest championship in Informatics, where a large number of complex tasks should be solved in a relatively short period of time. The championship is held under the auspices of the Association for computing machinery (ACM). Baylor University organizes the competition (USA) since 1989. At various times the sponsors of the tournament became such companies as Apple, AT&T and Microsoft, but from 1997 till now the general partner is IBM.

The best result for all history of participation of YKSUG students was the second place diploma in the semi-finals of the XIX international student Olympiad on programming in North-Eastern European region ACM/ICPC.
