SIGMOD PROGRAMMING CONTEST (Distributed Query Engine)

  • Concept : A programming contest was organized in parallel with the ACM SIGMOD 2012 conference, following the success of the first annual SIGMOD programming contest organized the previous year. Student teams from degree-granting institutions were invited to compete to develop a distributed query engine over relational data. Submissions were judged on the overall performance of the system on a variety of workloads. A shortlist of finalists was invited to present their implementation at the SIGMOD conference in Mai 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. The winning team, selected during the conference, was awarded a prize of 5,000 USD and was invited to a research visit in Paris. The winning system, released in open source, will form a building block of a complete distributed database system which will be built over the years, throughout the programming contests.

ACM-ICPC INTERNATIONNAL COLLEGIATE PROGRAMMING CONTEST

LE PRIX DE L’ENTREPRENEUR AFRICAIN

THE OPEN INNOVATION SUMMIT

  • Concept : The Open Innovation Summit has been recognized as an important showcase and deal-making forum in Europe and worldwide. It is the launchpad for innovative Open Source technologies, products and services. The Open Innovation Awards 2010 will be awarded to the top best presenters at the Demo Cup. The contest is open to all Open Source projects and solutions getting ready for commercial launch or already on the market. The jury will be looking at those projects and solutions most likely to have a significant impact on society and on the marketplace. The Open Innovation Demo Cup is about products; it requires timed, live demonstrations; and does not allow slide presentations! In recognition of the difficulty of communicating the power and value of Open Source projects on stage in a short 8 minutes, the Demo Cup will honor outstanding presentations. Chosen for their style, passion, clarity, and sometimes for their sheer fun, these Open Innovation Awards reward a unique ability to deliver a great product and position it in the market, to show off its most compelling features, to differentiate it from other products — and along the way to entertain a tough and critical Open World Forum audience.

THE ERICSSON APPLICATION AWARD 2011

  • Concept :  an opportunity for developers to gain exposure within the telecom world, a chance to reach out to customers via Ericsson distribution channels and a chance to win €15,000 in prize money.
