From 21 to 31 August, Petrozavodsk State University holds an annual summer international training camp on sports programming.
The training camp includes a five-hour competition, analysis of problems. Contests (tasks) of various types and difficulties were developed by the winners and prize-winners of the World Programming Championships. The winners of the training camp will be determined by the final rating for solving the largest number of problems in the allotted time. With an equal number of tasks, the higher will be the one that did it faster. For all problems, the authors conduct analysis of solutions, the participants can consolidate this knowledge and “finish” unsolved problems.
Teams from Moscow State University, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, St. Petersburg State University, ITMO University, St. Petersburg State Agrarian University, UrFU, SSU will take part in the competition.
Petrozavodsk State University will be represented by a team represented by Olga Masaeva.
Representatives of Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Poland, Czech Republic, China are expected from foreign participants.
This is the third time that the online collection is being held: in the summer of 2020 and in the winter of 2021, the collection was also held remotely.
Roman Vladimirovich Soshkin, organizer of the competition, Candidate of Technical Sciences, Senior Lecturer at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Cybernetics:
It is not difficult to carry out fees regardless of the format. All this thanks to Vladimir Alekseevich Kuznetsov, who at the first stages set everything up and made it so that now for the university it is practically an “ordinary” event, since the process is well-established. Of course, there is a lot of work, but all of it is familiar.
Head of the Club of Creativity of Programmers, Dr. Sci., Professor of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Cybernetics Vladimir Alekseevich Kuznetsov:
I wish all participants self-discipline, the will to win, and with the utmost responsibility go towards achieving high results.
Training camps at Petrozavodsk University have been held since 1998, since 2000 – twice a year: in winter and summer. Summer and winter camps of programmers – the largest international student camps in programming, twice a year attracting the strongest teams of the world’s leading universities, have become a brand not only of Petrozavodsk State University, but also of the Republic of Karelia.
