I'm re-posting a message sent out from the Mun Computer Science Department to their undergraduate students. It contains details surrounding the two programming competitions I recently posted about.


Calling all Memorial University Computer Science Students!  Two, count them, two upcoming Programming Competitions!

(1) Individual Competition

Would you like to participate in our Programming Competition?   The
competition is open to any Computer Science undergraduate student, first year and above, enrolled in a Computer Science Course.  This competition is for individual participation (not teams).  The problems need to be solved using Java or C.  The competition will be held:

Friday, September 17, 2010
5:00 to 7:30 p.m.

maximum of 16 participants, so don't delay!

(2) Team Competition

Would you like to participate in the APICS Annual Programming Team Competition? Each October, this competition is held in conjunction with the Annual APICS (Atlantic Provinces Council on the Sciences) Conference and is sponsored each year by a University in Atlantic Canada.  This year, the Conference will be hosted by St. Mary's University.

The top three teams from the Preliminary Round at St. Mary's University are then invited to the Northeast North America Regional Competition of the 2009-2010 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest sponsored by IBM.

The winning team from our Departmental Competition will be invited to attend the Annual APICS Conference at St. Mary's and participate in the Preliminary Round.  This conference also includes a Student Paper Presentation Session. Our departmental competition will be held:

Date: Friday, September 24, 2010
Time: 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Regina Edwards in the Computer Science General Office or by email redwards@cs.mun.ca by Wednesday, September 22, 2010, with the names of your team members.
