## Overview

Bayan is a software development company working on large-scale web applications. Currently working on a Search Engine, we face serious algorithmic challenges every now and then, and we try to provide solutions using state-of-art techniques, including Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, etc. Salam, being one of its subprojects, is a Meta Search Engine focusing on retrieving relevant results for Persian queries.

We also hold an annual programming event in which talented programmers compete. Problems of the contest are prepared by Bayan employees who have experience of IOI and ACM/ICPC. The previous contest had a wide range of audiences. About 2000 contestants participated in the last year's opening contest.

 » 10 years ago, # |   +42 Are Jews eligible to participate?
•  » » 10 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +4 No it is ok to call them Jews
•  » » 10 years ago, # ^ |   +45 In Iran,there is no law against Jews (in general), so you can take part in the competition just as any other Russian guy can. On the other hand, Iran does not recognize Israel. Therefore the Israeli participants will not be able to get to Tehran. It's not a matter of religion, It's a matter of nationality.

•  » » 10 years ago, # ^ |   +32 :)) hmm, look at Tehran Jewish Committee or Dr. Ciamak Morsadegh's homepage(Jewish representative in the Iranian Parliament). i want just mention that Jews live in Iran like other religions. Yousef Abad synagogue (in Tehran): Therefore there is no matter.

•  » » » » » » » » » 10 years ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   -37 You act like a woman. When you are asked a question you should answer it, not to pretend an idiot and mention different things that we are not talking about. And you are talking about gentlemen's agreements?! Funny, really funny...
