The next Waterloo-local ACM-style programming contest will be held on Sunday, September 30 in MC 3003.
All members of the University of Waterloo community are invited to try their programming skill in Racket, C, C++, Java, Pascal, Python, or Scala.
The results of this local contest will be used to select the UW teams for the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.
We will send three or more teams of three students each to the East Central North America Regional in Windsor on November 9–10, 2018. If we do well there, one team will advance to the World Finals in 2019.
Waterloo students have twice won the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, an annual multi-tiered programming competition among the universities of the world — a contest in which Cheriton Computer Science students often rank in the top 10 internationally.
The contest will run from 1:00 p.m. sharp until 4 p.m., and will be followed by pizza. There will be a practice contest in the morning to allow contestants, especially those competing for the first time, to get their account setup and become familiar with the contest environment.
Contestants participating in the practice contest should arrive by 10:30 a.m. in MC 3003. For out-of-town participants, it is possible to participate remotely using a web-based system, but local participants are encouraged to attend in person if possible.
