What is ACM-SAUDI Programming Jam 3.0
The Programming Jam 3.0 is an annual programming contest that is organized by the ACM Chapter in Saudi Arabia annually in Prince Sultan University. After the successful previous events, this year, this competition was open to all students of Universities in Saudi Arabia, as a new form of gathering programmers at national level and as a joint event among Saudi Universities.
This programming contest falls under the umbrella of ACM Professional Chapter in Saudi Arabia and is organized by the College of Computer and Information Sciences of Prince Sultan University to nurture the innovation, creativeness and collaboration to help and support new groups of software programs.
It also helps the students to test their ability to perform well under pressure with limited time. The contest will follow the format of the traditional ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). More details about the Programming Jam 3.0 can be found it its website: http://psu-saudiarabia.acm.org/event/psu-acm-national-programming-contest/
55 students’ teams participated from 8 universities registered and participated to the contest

|9||Semantic Mind Reader|
|10||Flash Disk Storage|
14 Programming Problems to Solve in 14 Hours. 6 Hard Problems, 4 Medium Problems, and 4 Easy Problems
The competition on the first rank was very tight and serious among the first four teams, since the first hours. The atoms1 (KSU) team was ranked first in the start of the competition, and then in the last six hours, the teams srsTeam (KSU), s2b_team (PSU) and icodeksu (KSU) were fighting seriously on the first rank in the competition.
The last 20 minutes were intense between the srsTeam (KSU) and s2b_team (PSU). Until 20 minutes before the end, srsTeam (KSU) was in leading position, and s2b_team (PSU) was in first position, and this last until 5 minutes before the end of the competition where the srsTeam (KSU) ripped out the first position at the very last minutes. We congratulate the srsTeam (KSU) team for this outstanding achievement, and for s2b_team (PSU) and atoms1 (KSU) for the second and third positions.
Credits are granted to the organizing committee of the ACM-SAUDI Programming Jam 3.0, which have demonstrated an excellent commitment to the success of the event.
