Thirty-three members of the four DTU teams, four teams from the Danang Polytechnic University, two from the Danang University of Economics and one from the Pham Van Dong University in Quang Ngai completed the computerized tests in three hours. When they finished, their results were automatically uploaded, with the Duy Tan Stork teams 1 and 2 completing two tasks and the Duy Tan Stork teams 3 and 5 completing just one.
Dr. Pham Anh Phuong, Head of Information Systems and Basic Informatics in the DTU Department of Information Technology said: “The contest is held to enhance the research capabilities of qualified IT students. Participants can improve themselves by gaining more experience in programming and teamwork. Similar contests should be organized to benefit the future IT in Vietnam”.
The ACM/ICPC is an annual contest attracting teams worldwide. Since 2006, Vietnam has been the official Asian host country. However, this is the first year that the contest has been held in Central Vietnam at DTU.
