ACM-ICPC 2014 supporters and contestants think highly of event’s organization, expert says

June 26, 2014. Visitors to and participants of the world computer programming championship ACM-ICPC 2014 had a very high opinion of how the event was organized in Yekaterinburg, Director of Luxembourg-based Artec Group Leonid Volkov told UrBC.

‘We were quite favorably impressed: the championship is very well organized, the competition was very dynamic, and, as far as I can tell, all the visitors, including those from abroad, are having a very good time. All the people I’ve spoken to – long-time contestants and team coaches from both the States and Russian cities such as Samara and Saint Petersburg are more than satisfied. They like the site, the info graphics, the visual aids, the way everything is designed by the event coordinators. The game itself is taking place in an actual gymnasium that has (for the first time, I think) spectator stands. This is actually very important: all the visitors and contestants can feel the sports spirit of the event,’ Volkov said.

He says that the organization of the event on Yekaterinburg site improved considerably against 2013: the transportation, catering, and other welfare and facilities issues are beautifully taken care of.

The final stage of the 38th world student computer programming championship ACM-ICPC is taking place in Yekaterinburg on June 23-25; IBM is acting as the global sponsor for the event, and Ural Federal University is hosting it.
