Sometimes I think about such a question. We are solving one-thread contests: we solve all problems without parallel programming.

But is there any contest with problems for parallel algorithms? I think it would be quite interesting. Does anybody know?

Also In google code jam or facebook hacker cup you can use threads(In hacker cup one problem was solved by some people with a non efficient algorithm but using threads and they got fairly modern and powerful PCs)
