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?

I don't know surely but even in this contests you can use threads if they are built in the language like java(As I remember I saw a Implementing thread class in TC). 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)

Topcoder has been having OpenCL competitions. Its not the same kind of parallel computing competition you have mentioned but it is an interesting difference.
