UrFU kicks off Ural Open Programming Championship
Teams of student programmers from Russian and Chinese universities will first compete in the "Battle of the Giants" portion of the competition. While there will be no winning team, judges will tally a national score. Highest-scoring teams will go on to compete in the Ural Open Championship.
Chinese student teams have been assembled from Shanghai University, Sun Yat-sen University, Tsinghua University, Zhejiang University and Beijing University. Five Russian universities are also represented in the competition.
This is the first year the Ural Open Programming Championship has been opened to non-Russian students. By the final round of the contest, student teams from Russia, Lithuania, Polan, Kazakhstan, Belarus and China will be competing for the championship.
The championship will be broadcast online and will include commentary in both Russian and English. Among the commentators is Alexey Samoletov, a notable Russian journalist. Dniil Silantyev, chief editor of IT-Eburg will join Samoletov in providing commentary for the event.
Teams with the highest scores at the conclusion of the Ural Open Programming Championship may be invited to participate in the World Finals, hosted by St. Petersburg ITMO University in June.
