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.
