MATLAB® Central

MATLAB Programming Contest

MATLAB Central Contests were held semi-annually from 1998 to 2012 to inspire programmers to develop and share winning code. Each contest presented a different problem to solve. Topics varied in range and focus from gene sequencing to surveying planets. For every contest, contestants submitted hundreds of entries to earn the coveted top spot. In these online contests, contestants competed with the best programmers from all over the world!
