Director’s Report on ACM-ICPC Asia Regional Dhaka Site Event Online Contest 2014
The ACM-ICPC Asia Regional Dhaka Site online Programming Contest 2014 was conducted by Bangladesh University of Business and Technology (BUBT), for the first time.
Bangladesh University of Business and Technology (BUBT) was established in the year 2003 under the Private University Act with the approval of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the Ministry of Education, Govt. of Bangladesh. BUBT was founded by Dhaka Commerce College, Mirpur, Dhaka and is managed by a Board of Trustees and a Syndicate in which the Principal of the College and the Chairman of the Governing Body of Dhaka Commerce College are Ex-officio members. Thus BUBT and Dhaka Commerce College are the two sister educational institutions working together closely for providing quality education in Bangladesh.
The popularity of programming contests in Bangladesh has been growing in recent years. This is one of the arenas where Bangladeshi students have been consistently outperforming in international assessment. Excelling in such events requires analytical prowess, deductive capabilities and the ability to think on one’s feet. The budding programmers from this country have risen to the challenge admirably. Participating in such competitions has enriched computer science departments of various universities, and has widened the mental horizon of the participating students. Bangladesh has a bright prospect in this field which cannot be disputed. From this point of view the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Bangladesh University of Business & Technology (BUBT) is going to organize ACM-ICPC Asia Regional Dhaka Site Event 2014 on December 05-06, 2014 at BUBT Permanent Campus.
