IEEEXtreme 13.0: Registration is open!

Dear student,
Registration for the IEEEXtreme Programming Competition is now open!

What is the IEEEXtreme?

IEEEXtreme is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members – advised and proctored by an IEEE member, and often supported by an IEEE Student Branch – compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems.

Who can compete?

Teams of up to three collegiate students who are current IEEE student members.
There is no limit for local colleges and universities as they can form multiple teams.

What could I win?

  • Fame: Unlimited bragging rights and an item for your resume.
  • Fortune: Among other great prizes, the Grand Prize is a trip to the IEEE conference of your choice, anywhere in the world.

All active participants in the competition will receive a digital certificate and a digital gift bundle.

How about the date and time?

IEEEXtreme 13.0 will take place on October 19, 2019. It will start on 00:00 UTC for all contestants around the globe and it will end 24 hours later.

Since it is a global competition, where is the location?

As IEEEXtreme is a virtual online competition, a physical location, or venue, must be identified for participants to use during the 24-hour competition.

Venues can be in an IEEE Student Branch office, a college lab, or another location on campus. It must be a place that participants can use for the 24 hours during the competition, it should be equipped with at least one computer, and some type of connection to the internet must be provided.

I’ve heard the contest is pretty difficult. I’m in my first year of university and don’t think I’m good enough. Should I participate?

Yes. The competition is all about the experience. IEEEXtreme is a lot of fun, and will help you face real-world problems that you may not see during college. Furthermore, the competition includes questions from various difficulties, from easy/novice to expert levels.

Get your team together early and register today. Together you can prepare for the competition by visiting our Practice Community.

In 2018 the IEEEXtreme hosted 9,500 participants from 76 countries!
Represent your school and your country in this year’s competition. Help us break the 10,000 participants benchmark and

Good luck!

Information Technology / Computer Science and Electrical Engineering ClubΌμιλος Πληροφορικής και Ηλεκτρολόγων Μηχανικών

Our Club aims to develop and promote the wider world of technology to everybody.

It is intended for people who have an interest in the production, use and knowledge of various tools, techniques, structures and systems. We promote our goal by implementing seminars, lectures, visits and workshops that present different areas in brief.

 

Through organizing various lectures, we will get you into contact with professionals in the technology sector where it might lead to new opportunities for employment or participation and involvement in various organizations.

 

Furthermore, as part of the events we create, we help groups and promote participation in different contests like the programming competitions IEEExtreme and International Olympiad in Informatics.

 

But of course such events are not enough, in addition to the serious content events we have a more relaxed and entertaining side where we organize recreational activities such as Lan-Parties, contests, trips and movie nights.

 

So if you like programming, new technologies, computer games, and constructions this is the club for you.

 

More information about the club can be found here http://ieee.bytefreaks.netΟ Όμιλος μας έχει ως στόχο την ανάπτυξη και προώθηση του ευρύτερου κόσμου της τεχνολογίας σε όλους.

Προορίζεται για φοιτητές που έχουν κάποιο ενδιαφέρον για την παραγωγή, χρήση και γνώση των διαφόρων εργαλείων, τεχνικών, κατασκευών και συστημάτων. Προωθούμε τον στόχο μας με την υλοποίηση σεμιναρίων, διαλέξεων, επισκέψεων και ομάδων εργασίας που παρουσιάζουν διάφορες πτυχές εν συντομία.

 

Μέσα από τη διοργάνωση διαφόρων διαλέξεων, θα έρθετε σε επαφή με επαγγελματίες του κλάδου της τεχνολογίας, όπου θα μπορούσε να οδηγήσει σε νέες ευκαιρίες για απασχόληση ή εμπλοκή και συμμετοχή σε διάφορες οργανώσεις.

 

Επιπλέων, στο πλαίσιο των εκδηλώσεων που δημιουργούμε, βοηθάμε και προωθούμε τις συμμετοχές ομάδων σε διάφορες διαγωνισμούς, όπως τους διαγωνισμούς προγραμματισμού IEEExtreme και Διεθνής Ολυμπιάδα Πληροφορικής.

 

Αλλά, φυσικά, τέτοια γεγονότα δεν είναι αρκετά, εκτός από τις εκδηλώσεις σοβαρού περιεχόμενου έχουμε μια πιο χαλαρή και διασκεδαστική πλευρά, όπου οργανώνουμε ψυχαγωγικές δραστηριότητες, όπως Lan-Party, διαγωνισμούς, εκδρομές και κινηματογραφικές βραδιές.

 

Έτσι, αν σας αρέσει ο προγραμματισμός, οι νέες τεχνολογίες, τα ηλεκτρονικά παιχνίδια ή οι κατασκευές αυτό είναι το club για σας.
