9th BME International 24-hour Programming Contest

Do you like programming? Can you take challenges? Would you match yourself with others?

Here is your chance! Grab it!

The Electrical Engineering Students' Hungarian Association and the Károly Simonyi College for Advanced Studies are proud to present the

9th BME International 24-hour Programming Contest!

If you have missed the previous eight occasions, it is now time to join the adventure!

This contest is a real test of creativity, knowledge, endurance and team-work, an EXTREME CHALLENGE! Sponsors and the offered prizes worth 5000 euros contribute to the high standards of the contest. The team which gains the utmost points can take home the award and the cup.

Those teams which will have finished registration until 21st February 2009, must do their best during the online preliminary qualifier on 28th February 2009. The best performing thirty teams can participate onsite at the Finals in Budapest Hungary, between 1st and 3rd of May 2009. During the 24-hour adventurous round, the contestants will have to solve one, but extremely complicated and interesting task. They will need all of their knowledge in the field of algorithms theory, artificial intelligence and program design, and also well-used team work competence is desired.

The contestants will be allowed to use their own computers. Technical background and catering will be provided. There are no restrictions on the hardware, software and support they use, but communication with the outside world is strictly forbidden.

For further information and for tasks from the previous years please visit the official homepage of the Challenge where future occurrences will also be available for everyone.

If you are not afraid of eXtreme challenges , you do not have anything else to do just to establish a team of 3 members and register at ! Participation is completely free of charge.

Have fun and good luck! The Organizers

Deadline for registration: 21st February 2009
