The Computer Programming World Championship will be part of the Mind Sports Olympiad which takes place August 18-24 at the Royal Festival Hall. Entrants will be given copies of C++, C, Pascal and Prolog compilers, and asked to compose programs.
Other events at the Fujitsu-sponsored competition include chess, bridge, Scrabble and memory games. The associated Virtual Mind Sports Olympiad will let Internet-connected PC users try their hand at several of the games and tasks.
