The ACM-ICPC (Association for Computing Machinery - International Collegiate Programming Contest) is considered as the "Olympics of Programming Competitions". It is quite simply, the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world. The ICPC  is a multi-tier, team-based, programming competition. Headquartered at Baylor University, Texas, it operates according to the rules and regulations formulated by the ACM.

Teams finishing in the top four positions will be awarded Gold Medals. Those teams finishing fifth through eighth place will be awarded Silver Medals. Those teams finishing ninth through twelfth place will receive Bronze Medals. Additional Bronze Medals may be awarded to teams solving the same number of problems as the twelfth place team and in a total elapsed time no more than 60 minutes more than the twelfth place team. Such teams will be awarded twelfth place.

The highest scoring team is the World Champion and will receive the World Champion Cup and plaques. The other top eleven teams, the Africa & Middle East Champions, the Asia East Champions, the Asia Pacific Champions, the Asia West Champions, the Europe Champions, the Latin America Champions, the Northern Eurasia Champions, and the North America Champions will also receive plaques.

Maths Beyond Limits

Maths Beyond Limits 2019 is an international mathematics camp for high school students from all over the world. It takes place 9-21.09.19 in Milówka, Poland. Students can apply as participants or semitutors. The recruitment process starts on 1.04.2018 and consists of two parts: Qualifying Quiz and Applicant Questionnaire, which are required to be submitted by the midnight of 30.04.2019. In the recruitment process we take into account not only applicants’ performance in the Qualifying Quiz and their academic achievements, but also their need to participate in the camp and their potential to benefit from it.

Every regular day there are various mathematical activities such as Mathematical Classes, Camper Talks and Time Academic Unscheduled (TAU) as well as non-mathematical Evening Activities and Sports in the beautiful scenes of Beskidy mountains. Mathematical Classes are run in 80-minute-long sessions; they are devoted to some of the most beautiful concepts in mathematics from outside the high school’s curriculum. They concern diverse mathematical fields and there are three sessions at the same time for the participants to choose from, which contributes to the diversity of academic experience participants have.

Camper Talks are 30-minute-long presentations given by participants on topics connected with mathematics. The participants prepare them before the camp and consult them with staff members during the camp. Their objective is to enhance youth’s presentation and communication skills as well as encourage the idea of active contribution to the camp and to the civil society, while inspiring others with their passions. TAU is time designated to work on mathematics independently. During this time all tutors and semitutors make themselves available for 'office hours' and groups often form to work together on problem sets. It was a great opportunity to clarify any points of the classes that were found hard or insufficiently explained. Evening Activities are non-mathematical activities run by participants or organisers in the evenings. They cover wide range of workshops and give opportunities to try something new or improve soft skills.
