The eleventh Caribbean Training Camp for the ACM-ICPC had its official opening on June 25th at the University of Informatics Sciences (UCI).

For a period of two weeks, ten teams made up of university students from Mexico, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua –this one for the first time - and six teams from Cuba will be testing their intuition capacity and their ability to make the most of it; their creativity and, at the same time, the different ways of learning with pleasure in a team work.

As stated by Dovier A. Ripoll Méndez, engineer and general director of the ACM-ICPC contest in the Caribbean, the hard training of contestants and coaches for the next ACM competitive cycle includes lectures, talks and visits to places of interest both on the university campus and in the capital of the country.

The Argentine professor Pablo Zimmermann, head coach of the Camp, will dictate several lectures, among them "Introduction to competitive programming".

For the second time at UCI, the also world finalist of the ACM-ICPC Competition, Thailand 2016, will be sharing his strategies and experiences.

The Caribbean Training Camp, which will run until July 7, is represented by 60 participants, including contestants, head coaches, judges and guests.
