Algorithmic Competition Summer Camp
June 28 - July 7
This is a intensive algorithmic competition training camp designed to challenge talented university students in algorithmic thinking by giving them an opportunity to learn, practice and tackle problems under the guidance of experts, academics and coaches who will provide a good ground for the students to assess themselves.
Students will not only get an opportunity to interact with other fellow students coming from different universities and countries, but they will also learn algorithms, and get challenged to step up as problem-solvers, programmers, and most importantly as teammates.
Benefits of this Camp
We believe that the main benefit comes from the opportunity to practice with challenging problems. Here are some other benefits according to our participants from the last algorithmic competition camp:
- Motivating yourself to improve your knowledge on the subject
- Assessing yourself
- Writing efficient code
- Learning teamwork and critical thinking
- Getting to know ICPC World better

All participants are expected to know one of C, C ++, Python or Java well.
Technical proficiencies varies from groups (Expert, Advanced and Foundation). Groups of the participants will be determined through qualification contest.
You need to know these topics below:
- Basic Data Structures: Arrays, Strings, Stacks, Queues
- Basic Math Operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation)
- Basic Recursion
- One of C/C++/Python/Java
- Basic string manipulations
In addition, you are expected to read chapters 1,2 and 4 from Competitive Programmer’s Handbook by Antti Laaksonen: https://cses.fi/book.pdf
*All Contests will be in English.
*Training will be in Turkish for Foundation and Advanced groups.
*Training will be in English for Expert group since we expect to have at least 3 international teams.
Questions are about our lecture topics and we will divide our participants into 3 main groups: Expert, Advanced, Foundation. You can see the daily schedule of each group.
All groups have different curriculums, coaches, and daily contests but the final contest will be common for everyone. For motivation, every group has its own prizes.
Expert group has no theoretical sessions. The theoretical topics of the camps will be covered in the problem solving session. They first enter the contest of the day, and in the evening the coach will solve the problems. They will attend to all the contests as teams.
Advanced and Foundation groups have a theoretical session in the morning and enter the related contest after. Finally, they have a problem solving session in the evening. These lectures are given by experts and academics, and the topics and curriculums will be prepared by us.
