John Bonomo, ICPC World Finals chief judge, has been part of the judging team since the 2002 Honolulu competition. “Our main purpose is to handle any slight problems with the test data, look at problems that contestant teams continually get wrong, and for clarification,” he said. Bonomo explained how the judging process has become increasingly automated with the advancement of technology. “We used to look through code and run testing,” he said. “Now the satisfaction comes from crafting challenging sets of problems.”

According to ICPC director of judges Jo Perry, there is one judge per problem in the World Finals. The chief judge and director of judges are used as extra hands during the finals and are also responsible for putting the problem sets together for the competition. Perry became involved with the judging side of the competition after being asked by a colleague at North Carolina State University to submit problems to a then infant ICPC competition.

Some of the judging staff became involved with judging simply for their love of the ICPC. Originally born in Sweden and now living in Canada, Per Austrin became involved with the competition as a contestant for his Swedish university. He joined the judging team when he could no longer compete due to age and has been a regular World Finals judge since 2008. “I enjoy the contest,” he said. “The construction of problems is almost like the other side of solving them.”

Former Google programmer Derek Kisman got his start with the World Finals as a contestant for The University of Waterloo during the Prague competition. He said, “I love the ICPC and being behind the scenes now as a judge.” Kisman enjoys coming up with problems that spawn interesting discussions and plans to continue judging for the ICPC as long as possible.

While many on the judging team have always known the international programming competition under the familiar ICPC name, Stan Wileman remembers the forerunner to the official contest we know today. While attending the University of Houston as a graduate student, Wileman and his early team of programmers learned of a contest at Texas A&M. “We overslept the day of the completion and arrived at the tail-end,” Wileman said. “We were late but still managed to win the damn thing and split the $100 grand prize!”

Today, Wileman has earned two hats with the ICPC as a World Finals judge and the regional director of North Central North American region. Bettina Johnson, ICPC Digital

logo-programming-WEB.jpg

Once again in 2010, OW2 and Scilab are organizing a joint open source programming contest.

This year, as a unique complement to the programming contest, a corporate networking event is organized for sponsors and their guests with the theme: Open Source, Open for Business.

The Contest ceremony will be held in September 24-26 2010 in Ningxia University, Yinchuan city, Ningxia, China.

Competition Purposes

The purpose of the competition is to develop awareness for the OW2 code base among students and technicians, and to provide an opportunity for contestants to demonstrate their talent in computer programming. What’s more, the contest aims at promoting teamwork and the ability of college students in science and technology to study and use OW2 open source projects. Based on principles of “freedom, sharing and creativity”, and aiming at improving international communication and cooperation, the competition is overseen by IT professionals and academics from Europe and China.

Rules of Contest

Eligibility

Academic staff and students of university and research institute, engineers of industrial and business organizations, and all other professionals.

Registration

Participants should select a topic among the list of topics provided for the OW2 contest (under construction). Once they have selected a topic, they should go to the Registration page for registration instructions.

Technical requirements

  1. Participants can select a topic in the list provided on the OW2 Contest webpage.
  2. After registration, participants are encouraged to get in touch with the topic contact, and exchange information on the corresponding project mailing list.
  3. The software will be developed using the Trustie collaborative infrastructure. It should include appropriate documentation for installing and running the software, as well as examples and tests. The language for code comments and documentation should be English.

Award Selection

The Award Selection process includes three stages:

  1. Shortlist of entries by an Expert Team.
  2. Peer-evaluation on the Internet, and.
  3. Final selection by French and Chinese Scientists.

In the first stage, 16 works will be shortlisted from all the received submissions. Peer-evaluation on the Internet will be made by all contestants. Finally, the French and Chinese Scientist Team will decide on the awards to be given, taking into consideration the results of the first and second stages.

Competitive Learning in Informatics: The UVa Online Judge Experience

Competitive Learning in Informatics: The UVa Online Judge Experience

A very nice paper for the ACM ICPC enthusiastic people :)

Competitive Learning in Informatics: The UVa Online Judge Experience

Miguel A. REVILLA, Shahriar MANZOOR, Rujia LIU

Abstract. The UVa Online Judge is probably the oldest and one of the most recognized programmingvcontest training sites for ICPC format contests. It is an automatic judging system wherevanyone from around the world (regardless of being a contestant or not) can submit his solution tovthe archived problems to check its correctness and improve his programming skill in the process.vAlthough the judge was initially developed to be used as a trainer site for potential competitors in the international programming contests (mainly ACM ICPC), we have observed that it is a very good tool for self-study. In the present paper some facts from the history of the site are given. Then the paper focus to the nature of self-competitive learning by analyzing the more frequent response sequences to the users from the judge along these 10 years. And by doing so we identify the main differences between the behaviors of the users when they are just training and when they are competing.

Here is the link to the paper. Here goes the quick view!
