The third IACS Computational Challenge is an exciting test of your computational knowledge and skill. Your team will have two days to develop and program an algorithmic strategy to win a computational game. Register now!
WHAT: Members of the IACS teaching faculty have crafted a game that tests students' programming, mathematical and strategic skills. The rules of the game will be revealed at kickoff. Teams will be allocated equal computational resources and, if needed, workspaces at SEAS.
WHO: Harvard undergraduates and graduate students up to the G2 level are eligible to participate. Students may form and register self-selected teams of 2-3 players or sign up as individuals to be matched with other players to form teams.
WHEN: The Challenge will kick off on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. Teams will play friendly games with each other and the Challenge organizers on Wednesday, January 22, to refine their tactics. The championship game will be played Thursday, January 23.
WHY: Students will play for fun, pride and prizes. The winners will be announced before academic and industry leaders at a ceremony during the Symposium on the Future of Computation in Science and Engineering on Friday, January 24.
