Welcome to the University of St Andrews MATLAB Contest Site!
Showcase your coding skills, develop and share solutions, and give science a hand at the same time. Inspired by the MATLAB Programming Contests, which gave you the chance to have a go at problems ranging from gene sequencing to surveying planets, our contest will have you competing with programmers from all over the world.
How does it work?
Contestants submit MATLAB programs that try to solve a problem published on our website. Our server automatically tests each entry for correctness and efficiency. Updated listings show all submitted entries so far, along with their scores. During the contest, contestants build on the work of other contestants, trying to outdo each other.
What can I win?
We’ll be offering amazing MATLAB T-shirts as prizes to the best performers! Also, regular prizes of Amazon vouchers can be won.
How do I take part?
Register with this site (we ask only for a username and an email address), and then sign up for a contest (we’ll notify you by email when there are new contests about to start, or if there is one running you can join).
We’re a team of researchers in the School of Biology at the University of St Andrews, UK, interested in how culture evolves. If you decide to take part in our study, we’ll be using your submissions to investigate how the code changes over time and explore the interaction between innovation, sharing, and collective improvements.
