We are glad to inform you that Volga Summer Camp 2020 – open competitive programming camp – will take place on July 7-18. It is organised by NUST MISIS together with P.G. Demidov Yaroslavl State University with the support of SIT (Schaffhausen Institute of Technology).

Half of the time they are going to deal with quarter-final ICPC contests, and the rest of it will be dedicated to private thematic contests. The focus of our lessons will be on coordinate compression, number theory, probability problems, network flow in graph theory.
  • DivB is for teams aiming directly at ICPC final. All the contests here are team ones. The contests are going to be of the two difficulty levels: those of semi-finals and quarter-finals of ICPC.

During the camping period there will be 10 training days and 2 days off. Training days will have the usual schedule: contest→ tutorial→upsolving. For divC there will be lectures before private contests. The lectures in the camp will be given by coaches from NUST MISiS, YarSU and ITMO on one of the platforms for video conferencing.
