As the Association of Computer Engineering Students (ACES) of the University of Peradeniya, we organize ACES Coders annually as a major event to improve the coding skills, competitiveness and interactions of undergraduates Island wide. ACES Coders started ten years ago as a practice event to prepare computer engineering students of the University of Peradeniya to take part in similar online programming competitions such as IEEEXtreme and ICM ACPC.

This year, “ACES Coders v8.0” will be held on the 29th February 2020 from 6.00 p.m. to the following day 6.00 a.m. as an overnight 12 hours competition at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya. The competition focuses on problem-solving skills with algorithms using the Hackerrank platform.



First place       : Rs.100,000

Second place   : Rs.75,000

Third place      : Rs.40,000

All the participants get certificates for their participation in ACES Coders v8.0.

The previous ACES Coders v7.0 event was extremely successful with the participation of around 300 students from almost all the universities from all around the country.

You can send us your best three teams together with an additional reserve team (altogether 4teams) from your department. Each team should comprise of three members (or less) at most. If more teams are willing to participate, please send us a request and we will consider it as per the Rules & Regulations attached to this email.
