Centre of Student Competitions of the HSE's Faculty of Computer Science helps students prepare for various team and individual programming contests, including ACM ICPC, Yandex.Algorythm, Google Code Jam, Russian Code Cup, and also for Mathematics competitions and hackathons.
HSE Faculty of Computer Science and Faculty of Mathematics joint team has won the second place in a new international Open Mathematical Olympiad for University Students. Daniil Ivanik, Karim Shamazov, and Alexsandr Latyshev Applied Mathematics and Information Science programme, and Alexandr Shlimovich of the Faculty of Mathematics were the members of the team. The team was supposed to go to Vojtech Jarnik Competition, cancelled due to the pandemic.
The students also excelled individually, with a silver medal for Nikita Kalinin of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, and bronze medals for Daniil Ivanik and Kamir Shamazov.
Though OMOUS is not as influential as VJIMC, many international teams participated, including the host country team of Turkmenistan, Russian, Tajikistan, Ukrainian, Uzbekistan, Belorussian, Bulgarian, Romanian, Greek, Chinese, Argentinian, Vietnamese, and South Korean teams.
The particular point of this competition is different set of tasks for individual and team competition. The Olympiad has, therefore, individual competition on the first day and team competition on the second day. Every university could appoint a team of four members and any number of individual participants.
It is also important to point out that Turkmenistan teams were present at the Olympiad, while other teams had to take part distantly. Turkmenistan teams got the first, the third, and the fourth places.
