ANNOUNCING The Eighteenth Annual Berkeley Programming Contest

In preparation for the 2008 Pacific Northwest Regionals of the 32nd Annual ACM Scholastic Programming Contest, there will be a semi- informal programming contest tentatively scheduled for Saturday, 27 September 2008, from 1000--1530. This contest is open to any registered Berkeley student (graduate or undergraduate) who fulfills the ACM eligibility requirements below.

The contest will take place in the terminal rooms on the second floor of Soda Hall. Remote participation is also possible. Contestants will receive approximately eight programming problems to solve in five hours, with all problems supplied by The Judge, Prof. Paul ``Hack 'em High'' Hilfinger. Programs are to be written in Standard C/C++ using the gcc compiler or in Java using version 5 of the JDK. Contestants may not use pre-typed program text in electronic form, except what The Judge supplies, but are free to bring paper copies of anything. As in the ACM contests, I will score on the basis of the number of problems solved, with ties broken according to elapsed time and the number of unsuccessful answer submissions.

The winners will receive local fame and recognition. From them, we will choose teams to participate in the ACM Programming Contest. Contestants must be willing to participate in the ACM Pacific Regionals, which will be held on Saturday, 15 November 2008, in an as- yet undisclosed location. Since naturally we intend to win the regional contest, contestants must also be willing to participate in the International Contest Finals to be held in spring of 2008.

The U.S. has fared poorly in these contests of late. Berkeley was the second-to-last U.S. team to win the Contest Finals, and that was in 1996. This year, the top U.S. team (MIT) placed 2nd; Stanford placed 7th; and Princeton was the only other U.S. team in the top 30 places. The reason is simple: teams from China, Europe, and Russia, (as well as a few Canadian teams) take the contest very seriously and practice quite a bit, at the expense of more conventional academics. I can't ask you to ditch your courses, but I will be asking the teams chosen to commit to more practice than in the past.

If you would like to participate, please visit the contest website, at URL http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~hilfingr/programming-contest which has links to our on-line registration page, plus collections of past problems and other information. Our facilities are limited, so please make sure you meet the eligibility requirements described on the registration page. If too many people sign up, we may have to modify the contest somewhat. I will post such adjustments on the contest website and e-mail them to registered participants.

You may find a good text on data structures and algorithms helpful (e.g., Algorithms by Cormen, Leiserson, and Rivest). What really helps, though, is practice. You can find links to additional suggestions for how to prepare yourself on the contest website.

ELIGIBILITY. We can send a currently unknown number of teams (as space permits) to the regional contest, each comprising three registered students. You must have participated in at most four ACM regional contests and one ACM finals contest previously. All contestants must have started college (at Berkeley or elsewhere) in or after fall 2004, or have been born in or after 1985, or have completed no more than 8 semesters of full-time college study (or equivalent). In some cases (such as military service or other hiatus in your education), your eligibility may be extended. In particular, students may participate while they are on internships. Please send mail to The Judge at if you have questions.

Dear Cal Engineering Bears,

Welcome back to Cal! The beginning of the year is always a busy and exciting time as you reunite with friends.

Towards emotion awareness: Exploring long-term monitor and support in mental health area

We have to face negative emotions from time to time. Failure to cope with negative emotions often impacts our work efficiency and our interpersonal relationships. When things get worse, it might lead to mental disorder/illness, such as depression. Studies show that suicide resulted from depression is one of the major causes of death among young adults in the United States.

In this project, we are exploring possible technologies that contribute to the area of mental health (i.e. emotion management). We are currently looking at how to extract features from speech utterances to classify different emotions. The ultimate goal is to build several applications based on the recognition module, e.g. leveraging emotional cues to build a community support application.

I hope to recruit undergraduate students interested in doing research. For the current stage of the project, we'll go through all the stages to build a real-time emotion monitor. First of all, we need to label emotion on speech data. Then, we'll investigate how different features affect the performance of emotion recognition. Finally, we'll implement a real-time emotion recognizer.

In this project, you'll learn about speech feature extraction, machine learning methods, user studies, and so on. If you find this interesting, please send me an email: . I can work my advisor to turn your work into course credits!

Technology so advanced, it’s classified.

Are you looking for an exciting and challenging internship or cooperative education experience? Consider employment with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as an undergraduate or graduate student.

In today’s world of ever-changing challenges, it is more important than ever for the CIA to stay ahead of fast-paced global technology developments. The classified work we are presently undertaking allows us to meet the Agency’s foreign intelligence mission through leadership in a wide range of scientific and technical disciplines. This is truly a unique opportunity for scientific and engineering experts to look beyond a commercial, product-driven mindset to goal-oriented, highly focused work of significant national importance.

We seek highly motivated undergraduates studying a wide variety of technical fields, including electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, computer security, program management, mathematics, economics, physical sciences, foreign languages and area studies.

Students selected for the co-op program are often attending academic institutions with established cooperative education programs, though not exclusively. They work on an alternating semester or quarterly basis and are expected to spend a minimum of three semesters or four quarters (this can include a summer tour) on the job prior to graduation. The undergraduate co-op program provides increasingly challenging assignments that are commensurate with the students' academic training and individual ability to assume additional responsibility.

The intern program requires a student perform two 90-day work tours- often done during the summers before a student graduates.

We will be interviewing in Northern California the week of September 22nd. If you are interested in attending an information session, please RSVP to for more information. Please visit www.cia.gov for further career opportunity details.
