September 12-14, the Department of Information Technology of the Faculty of Mathematics of Zaporizhzhya National University conducted a second round of All-Ukrainian students' programming Olympiad in the South. For the title of best in the field of knowledge competing 22 teams from leading universities of Nikolaev, Odessa, Zaporizhzhya, Melitopol and Berdyansk.
First Round of this prestigious academic contest between the future mathematicians and programmers also held on the basis of our university. ZNU recognized the best higher education institution in southern Ukraine, which could be the basis for the contest.
Head and associate professor of Information Technology Department Serhii Boriu, associate professor, coordinator of the Olympiad Nataliia Keberle, Head of Information Systems and Computer Technology Lab of the Faculty of Mathematics Nataliia Pliuta, leading specialist of the Depatment for Academic Affairs Natalia Kirichenko and assistant professor of the Department of Software Automated Systems of ZNTU Nataliia Mironova have made great efforts to create good conditions for young scientists for work and leisure.
A good organization of the event noted all the competitors, especially those who are first year participating in this competition. The same student who had never been to Zaporizhzhya, said that they were impressed by the great excursion to the Khortytsya island and walk the city.
The peculiarity of this event is that the jury evaluates not individual work of its individual members, and the results of the group of three people working together. The five best teams in the South Ukraine was selected to participate in the national finals, which, however, is the semi-finals of the prestigious international programming contest ACM ISRS. The very participation in this competition is a good recommendation for many reputable employers because there is convincing evidence of the ability of young algorithmists quickly and coherently to solve complex problems in a team.
As a result of intense two-day competition at the semifinal of the International Olympiad ACM SEERC (The 2014 Southeastern Europe Regional Contest) in Vinnytsya National Technical University will go the following commands: ONU 1 3.2 (Odessa National University named after Mechnikov) – the 1st place, ZNTU_SetUp (Zaporizhzhya National Technical University) – 2nd place, ONU_Antananarivu (Odessa National University named after Mechnikov) – 3rd place, ONPU_Compote (Odessa National Polytechnic University) – 4th place and ZNTU_Kappatalize (Zaporizhzhya National Technical University) – 5th place.
Tours to the final - the 3rd stage of Ukrainian Students' Programming Olympiad, which will be held in Kharkiv National University of Economics, received the teams: ONU_0xBBB (Odessa National University named after Mechnikov), ZSEA ChuckNorris та ZSEA Alliance (Zaporizhzhya State Engineering Academy), MDPU_AKUMA (Melitopol State Pedagogical University), ONPU_LightSCribe та ONPU_TASCHI (Odessa National Polytechnic University), ZNTU_ByteShift (Zaporizhzhya National Technical University) and ZNU_Alt+F4 (Zaporizhzhya National University).
