IU Olympiad Logo

Beside research activities, since 2012, our lab has kept organizing and training a group of self-motivated students who are a big fan of algorithmic programming. Our purpose is to create a prestigious academic environment for students who aim to solve challenging problems in the National Olympiad in Informatics for Vietnamese Students and the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). More importantly, our vision is to encourage students to learn, to research in scientific problems, and to empower teamwork in collaborative and integrated environments.

1. Vision & Mission

Competitive programming is a mind sport usually held over the Internet or a local network, involving participants trying to program according to provided specifications. Contestants are referred to as sport programmers. This kind of programming competition generally involves the host presenting a set of logical or mathematical problems, also known as puzzles, to the contestants (who can vary in number from tens to several thousands), and contestants are required to write computer programs capable of solving each problem. Judging is based mostly upon number of problems solved and time spent for writing successful solutions, but may also include other factors (quality of output produced, execution time, program size, resource usage, etc.).

Beside research activities, since 2012, our lab has kept organizing and training a group of self-motivated students who are a big fan of algorithmic programming. Our purpose is to create a prestigious academic environment for students who aim to solve challenging problems in the National Olympiad in Informatics for Vietnamese Students and the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). More importantly, our vision is to encourage students to learn, to research in scientific problems, and to empower teamwork in collaborative and integrated environments.

Our mission is to train and fosters students with background knowledge in an intermediate level of computer science including algorithms, data structures, mathematics in computing, and programming.

2. Activities

Our training is arranged in weekly schedule, including theoretical lectures and contest-driven practice. We have been hosting our self-organized online judges for our students to work on algorithmic problems more conveniently. Our internal training server includes: DOMjudge, Contest Management System (CMS) and Virtual Judge (Vjudge).

3. Achievements

The 9-year journey of conquering the National Olympiad in Informatics for Vietnamese Students and the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is not a long time, but it is enough for us to look back on the achievements after a long lasting and challenging adventure but full of joy.

a. International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC)

The International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is an algorithmic programming contest for college students. Headquartered at Baylor University, directed by ICPC Executive Director and Baylor Professor Dr. William B. Poucher, the ICPC operates autonomous regional contests covering six continents culminating in a global World Finals every year. Teams of three, representing their university, work to solve the most real-world problems, fostering collaboration, creativity, innovation, and the ability to perform under pressure. Through training and competition, teams challenge each other to raise the bar on the possible. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world.

We won a number of honorable achievements after a long and challenging journey with ICPC

  • ICPC Asia Pacific Regional Contest:
    • Gold Medal & First Prize (2020, Cantho site) and Bronze Medal (2019, Danang site)
  • Domestic Teams at ICPC Asia Pacific Regional Contest:
    • First Prize (2019, Danang site), Second Prize (2018, Hanoi site)
  • ICPC Vietnam National Contest:
    • First Prize (2018), Second Prize (2019) and Third Prize (2020)
  • ICPC Vietnam Southern Provincial Contest:
    • First Prize (2020, 2018), Third Prize (2019)

b. National Olympiad in Informatics for Vietnamese Students

National Olympiad in Informatics for Vietnamese Students is an initiative of the Vietnam Association for Information Processing (VAIP)the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, and the Vietnamese Students’ Association to motivate the learning movement and to encourage young talents in computer science. Starting in 1992, the competition was held annually with the participation of a large number of students from universities and colleges throughout the country.

The scale and scope of the competition expanded under the general regulations of the Government and sponsored by Ministry of Education and Training, Ministry of Information and Communication and the Ministry of Science and Technology, Union of Science and Technology Art of Vietnam, the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union, the People’s Committee of the hosting province or city.

During last 9 years (from 2012 to 2020), under the supervision of Dr. Ha Viet Uyen Synh, we received a number of achievements in National Olympiad in Informatics for Vietnamese Students. In summary, we honorably presented following encouraging results:

All of the above achievements are the result of the ceaseless efforts of the entire team in a long-term training and coaching, continuing to affirm the position and quality of HCMIU CVIP’s students through national and international programming-related competitions.
