Computer programming contest today at NDSU

FARGO – North Dakota State University’s computer science department is a regional site for the International Collegiate Programming Contest today from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union.

NDSU is one of several volunteer host sites in the North Central North American region, which extends from Manitoba to Kansas. Participating schools include NDSU, University of North Dakota, Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia College.

All of the regional competition sites run concurrently and use the same question set. The top team from each region is invited to the world finals, which is in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The contest involves a five-hour programming session, in which the teams are given approximately 10 problems to solve in C, C++ or Java.
