5th Marathon of Parallel Programming


The Parallel Programming Marathon is a SBAC-PAD track that occurs since 2006.

The main purpose of the contest is to spread intellectual enhancements on parallel and distributed programming through a high-level competition, involving correct resolution and performance gain of the proposed solution. Undergraduate and post-graduated students of Computer Science, Computer Engineering and other courses of related areas may participate of the Marathon.

Competition teams are composed by three (3) members, graduated or undergraduated students, who are going to have only a computer to solve up to 9 problems during 5 hours of duration. Competition teams can also bring printed hard copy material (e.g. papers, books, manuals).

Judgment is strict. In the beginning of the contest, teams receive problem descriptions and a sequential (serial) solution. Resolution involves not only the correct problem solution, but also performance speedup for parallel (or distributed) version, measured according to criteria defined by judgment commission for current contest.

This year, the Marathon schedule is defined bellow:
- October 27th - Warmup
- October 28th - Contest

When contest finishes, all teams will have their results available and winners will be officially announced during official SBAC-PAD dinner.
