The National Programming Contest was initiated by the Department of
Computer Science at the University of Sharjah and has been in existence since
2001. A large number of UAE universities and colleges have participated during
the past contests. Each institution may participate with up to three teams. The
contest provides an excellent opportunity for students majoring in Computer
Science, Computer Engineering, Management Information Systems, IT, and IT
related subjects to show their skills in problem solving and to meet students
from other institutions. Furthermore, this contest prepares the various UAE
teams for the ACM regional and world programming contests. The Organizing
Committee for NPC 2010 is anticipating another successful event with a wider
participation of all UAE higher education institutions.
The registration and the opening ceremony
of NPC 2010 was held on Wednesday, March 31st, 2010. Following that, there will
be a talk by a keynote speaker and a technical session going over the contest
rules, and finally, a practice session. The actual contest will take place on
Thursday, April 1st, 2010. A lunch buffet will be provided during the contest.
There will be an award ceremony and dinner, where all participating teams will
be recognized and the winning teams will be awarded valuable prizes.
