AAPT Guidelines Accurate and Agile Programming Team Training (AAPT) Objective: Biweekly training will begin in the spring semester. Biweekly training will have individual and teamwork training components in two hour sessions. One Saturday of each month will be a contest simulation day. In the monthly contest simulation day, students will be exposed to an environment similar to the ACM regional programming contest, including six hours of programming in a noisy area. In biweekly training, students will:
Understand the judging criteria.
Understand possible sample inputs.
Understand advanced output format skills.
Practice a problem difficulty assessment.
Practice problem classification.
Practice fast typing.
Practice rapid debugging.
Practice off-line coding.
Become familiar with frequently used Java source codes.
Be evaluated to show their strengths.
After spring semester training, we will form teams for the contest, including an elite team. This team will be the selected from the top three performing students in the spring semester. The criteria for joining the elite team will be announced at the beginning of spring semester.
In the fall semester there will be weekly training simulating the ACM regional programming contest.
Location:Radford University, College of Information Science and
Award: The names of students who passed the spring semester training will be
given special recognition on the bulletin board at the beginning of fall semester.
The team achieving a top 25 finish of the ACM Regional Programming Contest will receive a reward equivalent to $500. If there are multiple teams which finish between 4 and 25, a team at the highest place will receive the reward. A team in the top three of the ACM Regional Programming Contest will earn an award equivalent to $1000. If there are multiple teams which finish in the top three, a team at the highest place will receive the reward.
Registration Must be turned in by February 17, 2006
Meals: College of Information Science and Technology will pay for all participants, volunteers and faculty participating in competition
