Training course - Competitive Programming II
General Objectives of the CourseThis course aims to develop skills in solving programming problems based on engineering challenges where optimal solutions cannot usually be found in a suitable amount of time. Problems of this kind regularly arise in the context of programming and solver competitions such as the Google Hash Code and the ROADEF/EURO challenges. From a description of a problem, the successful student should be able to, individually and in a team, relate it to other known problems, identify appropriate heuristic approaches to address it, develop a suitable problem model, and implement an effective solution approach in an efficient manner.
The following candidates are eligible to apply: (a) Students enrolled in a course at the University of Coimbra with proven knowledge in Programming; (b) Holders of an academic or professional curriculum relevant to this course.
