IEEEXtreme 15.0 Call for Judges / Problem Authors

Are you fascinated by programming? We, the IEEEXtreme 15.0 Executive Committee, are opening the registrations for a select few judges and problem authors.

IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems authored by industry professionals and coding experts like yourself. Over the 15 years since it began, the competition has attracted over 70,000 competitors from over 2,500 schools in 90 countries around the world.

This is an opportunity where you can not only develop the coding challenges but also you can evaluate them while having the opportunity to associate with some of the top experts in the field. The judging staff of IEEEXtreme are all volunteers who strive to make the contest a fun and exciting experience for all.

Judges responsibilities may include one or more of the following:

Develop at least 1 original and innovative problem. You may see examples of the format of the IEEEXtreme problems here: https://csacademy.com/ieeextreme-practice/
Review and evaluate the problems proposed by another judge and provide feedback;
Provide independent solutions to other proposed problems using any of the competition programming languages;
Be online during the day of the competition for 1-2 hours based on their availability in order to address the contestants’ questions related to the authored challenge.

While not everyone who submits a nomination will be selected, we will carefully review all nominations and thank you in advance for your time to express your interest! We look forward to welcoming you aboard to the IEEEXtreme community!

Please apply using this form on or before 2021/09/19.

IEEEXtreme: What Did The Penalty Bracket Mean?

The penalty (per challenge), is the time in minutes between the initial release of a challenge and the time at which a team submitted their best answer to that challenge.

For example, the challenge named “Crafting Wooden Tables” was released on the 5th hour of the 14.0 IEEEXtreme competition (05:00 UTC +0).

If a team had their best solution to this challenge submitted at 19:59 (UTC +0), which gives us almost a 15 hour delay, then the penalty for that challenge would be 899 point (14 hours * 60 minutes + 59 minutes = 899 minutes since the release of the challenge.)

Each teams’ total penalty is the sum of all individual penalties.

Why sponsor IEEEXtreme

IEEEXtreme is a global programming competition where IEEE students compete against each other in teams composed of up to 3 people. The competition has an unconventional timespan which lasts 24 hours and it usually starts on a Saturday of October at 00:00 (UTC +0) for everyone around the globe.

During that period the teams are asked to solve algorithmic challenges using their programming language of preference.
The competition platform supports more than 20 different programming languages, including all the popular ones.
This is making it easier for the majority of students to compete as all common programming languages taught at school are covered.

All students are able to join the IEEEXtreme as the challenges set contains challenges of all kinds of difficulty levels.
Up to now there always were challenges that can be solved by junior students and also there were mind boggling challenges for the advanced and experienced students.

Junior students, by joining early they get experience on how to handle the workload with their team members and perform efficient time management based on their skill set.
Participation in more competitions allows them to improve as a team for the years to come and greatly improve their ranking in the future.
We observe that there is retention of contestants as many compete in multiple competitions year after year.

A sponsor may request for a specific challenge to be addressed during the competition and/or set parameters to a challenge.

We hope to get your support in the biggest programming competition of IEEE which is composed of ~10.000 contestants and several hundreds of volunteers around the world!
