IX Vekua Cup was simultaneously held in Tbilisi, Vinnytsia, Kharkiv, Moscow, St. Petersburg and Novosibirsk. Vekua Cup consists of two stages ─ personal and team. The Ukrainian site winner is the team of VNTU _ [wRabbits]
Although the activity of academician Ilya Vekua historically took place in Georgia and Russia, the most active participants of the competition in addition to the representatives of these countries became the Ukrainian participants.
The students of Vinnytsia National Technical University have the best results among Ukrainian students in personal competitions of Vekua Cup! Unfortunately, the success of Ukrainian students is more modest in team competitions.
Trips to Batumi, Kutaisi and Tbilisi, where Vekua Cup was held other years, were very bright events. Unfortunately, now it has become difficult both organizationally and financially. So, in oder not to lose the Ukrainian participants Vekua Cup organizers decided to create The Cup sites in Ukraine.
Last year such a site was created in Vinnytsia National Technical University and this year the site in Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics has been added.
This year IX Vekua Cup contest has become the most widespread in the history of the Cup. 186 students took part in the personal stage and 142 teams took part in the team stage!
