NAC-NAPC Trainers

The training at the camp will be conducted by a group of trainers with extensive experience in programming competitions (as contestants and coaches), competitive programming courses, and more general topics in computing. Training activities will be broadly organized into two streams, although teams are free to alternate between them:

NAC Track

Training will focus on techniques and topics in competitive programming that are crucial for strong performances at a North America Championship level contest. There will be direct instruction on core topics in competitive programming, in addition to problem set discussions, and lab sessions for implementing the ideas discussed. Participants will gain experience applying new techniques to solve problems under ICPC contest-like situations.

ICPC World Finals Track

Focus will be on training for the ICPC World Finals (WF). Problem sets will be difficult and reflect the task/information overload environment unique to the World Finals. Strategies for handling WF-like problem sets will be discussed. Emphasis will be less on teaching particular techniques and more on strategies for success at the World Finals. Trainers in this track include former World Finals medalists who will work closely with the teams to provide direct feedback on how they can effectively address World Finals problem sets.

Space in the World Finals track may be limited.
