It’s our pleasure to invite you to participate in this year’s Hitachi Hokkudai Lab. & Hokkaido University Programming Contest on Future autonomous distributed city development. The contest is jointly sponsored by Hitachi Ltd. and Hokkaido University. It is a marathon-type contest which will last for one month and takes place as follows:
- from November 13th, 2021 to January 31st, 2022 (*Problem B starts on December 4th).
We were preparing for the contest starting on November 5th, but the preparation has been delayed due to some bugs found in the development code and we need additional time to investigate them. We are very sorry to inform you that as a result of considering the work period required to maintain the quality of the contest, we have decided to postpone the date of the contest. Your understanding would be greatly appreciated.
The contest provides problems related to optimal area design for a regional energy system. The contest consists of two problems A and B. The winner of each problem will receive 300,000 JPY, and 500,000 JPY, respectively. Registration has opened and is available through the following websites:
