[Wroclaw, Poland, October 17, 2022] About 300 students from 11 countries attended a three-day training camp on Sunday initiated by the International Collegiate Programming Contest University Commons (ICPCU). Co-hosted by Wrolcaw University and Huawei, the camp aims to provide top-notch programming education for enthusiasts of mathematical modeling, algorithms, programming and data structure.
On your marks, ready? Go!
From October 14 to 16 in Miłocin Park in Pierwoszów, near Wroclaw, teams of students and young programmers gathered to practice and improve their skills under the watchful eyes of supervisors, coaches and mathematical talents from around the world. entire. For the first time in the history of this global initiative, the 3-day educational program took place in Poland. Over 40 teams, some connected online while others join on-site, were drawn to compete in algorithm programming in 3 expert-led training sessions. These classes allow participants to practice and improve their skills before the next stage of the final. It was an exciting opportunity to meet new people, learn from others and get to know the practices and theories taught in different countries (like Romania, Czech Republic or Israel).
“Huawei will continue to support competitions and training camps, and provide professional coaching to the ICPC community. We would also like to share with you any real industry issues that need to be resolved in order to enable a fully connected and intelligent system. world. Together, we can learn and grow through CPIC, and drive technological progress!” Zhou Hong, president of Huawei’s Strategic Research Institute.
ICPC Europe 2022 Boot Camp Powered by Huawei Held in Poland
Huawei pledges to open a research platform
One of Huawei’s permanent goals is to actively support the local talent ecosystem. Huawei is committed to opening research platforms geared towards the future of information terminals, computing and connectivity. Huawei’s research and development in technologies and products are inevitably linked to mathematics, algorithms and software challenges, especially in the field of optics, wireless structures and mobile phones. Observations of similar competitions organized by Huawei and dedicated to young talents lead to the conclusion that students consider Huawei work areas such as cloud, social application software and financial transactions as the best areas to exercise their skills. in programming and mathematical modelling.
“Bootcamp is not only a meeting of minds, but also a communication platform. Its value lies not only in the content, but also in the connections made through the bootcamps. Huawei has opened a window of opportunity for ICPC volunteers to participate in these activities without having to bear the financial burden.” ICPC Global Executive Director. said Dr. William B. Poucher.
“The ICPC Foundation’s training initiatives are crucial in sparking new talent, new aspirations, bringing people together, and creating new systems and services that will serve our neighbors. ICPC is about finding solutions to problems. Huawei has been supporting this initiative since many years, which has allowed it to grow successfully and provide opportunities for many students and coaches in different parts of the world. Only together, with academia and industry, can we make this world a better place, creating opportunities for the next generations of problem solvers and finding smart solutions for everyone’s needs.” Veronika Soboleva, Development Director of the CIPC Foundation.
Equal education is the key to digital inclusiveness
Huawei is committed to eradicating inequalities in access to new technologies – and therefore aims for full inclusion of the digital world. One of the most effective strategies that Huawei can introduce in this regard is to provide the opportunity to educate young people around the world. The company’s flagship educational program, Seeds for the Future, which kicks off in just weeks, is one of its many initiatives offering students exposure to AI, the cloud, or alternative energy resources. In 2021 alone, Huawei had cooperated globally with over 300 universities and over 900 research institutes. Huawei will also launch more than 10 Tech Arena competitions in dozens of European countries.
“As a steadfast pioneer in digitalization, Huawei believes that digitalization will be the key to unlocking a better future. This progress will be much easier if we involve top talent in discipline design, school-enterprise joint training, science and technology competitions and other all high-level and multi-level talent discovery and cultivation initiatives.Therefore, in 2021 alone, Huawei invested 2.7 billion RMB in university cooperation , cooperating with more than 300 universities and more than 900 research institutes around the world,” said Guo Shuaisheng, director of Huawei’s research center in Warsaw.
In Poland, Huawei recently signed an agreement with WSB University in Dąbrowa Górnicza to give students access to more practical courses, interesting lectures and more up-to-date study plans. This is just one of many collaborations Huawei has had with Polish universities. The company has implemented talent development programs such as co-developed deep learning courses for the University of Warsaw, an algorithm research program at Jagiellonian University and other programs future training at Wroclaw University, Warsaw University of Technology, Poznań University of Technology or Koźmiński University.
