Session at the UCI II National Workshop of Trainers of pre-university for computer science competitions
From the 11th to the 15th of June, at the University of Computer Science (UCI), the II National Workshop of Pre-University Trainers for Computer Science Competitions will take place.
This activity, organized jointly with the Ministry of Education of Cuba (Mined), aims to provide vital knowledge for the work with pre-university students in the provinces, with the aim of raising even more, the results of Cuba in programming competitions.
It is also the ideal way to bring knowledge and ways of encouraging the development of young talent to these educational institutions through these days of exchange.
Dovier A. Ripoll Méndez, Executive Director of the ACM-ICPC Caribbean Final, gave a lecture on the ACM-ICPC University Programming Contest and the role of the UCI in the East, with special emphasis on the "Tomás López Jiménez" Competitive Programming Movement.
This event, whose activities are supported by the Faculty 1 of the UCI, provides for a round table discussion on how the contest movement is organized in the Cuban pre-university. It will be the venue for the next national competitions of this type.
There will also be preparation sessions on different topics related to competition programming, where participants will receive training on GNU/Linux, Dynamic Programming and Algorithmy. A preparation will also be made on how to deploy the Caribbean Online Judge (COJ) locally, in order to manage programming competitions in the study centre itself.
As Dovier says, "this is a workshop where both the pre-university coaches and the UCI staff involved in these issues benefit; it's about winning".
