Abstract

In traditional programming contests the tasks almost always focus on design of efficient algorithms. In this paper, we discuss that this does not have to be the case in the future, and we give a significant number of concrete tasks that cover other areas of Computer Science. All of the tasks presented in this paper have actually been used in past programming contests.
