Final ranking ( EDIT : Solutions links added ) + ( EDIT : Late contest results)  

Here we are, we finally have the results.
First, the technical explanations on how we made the benchmarks, explained by our software engineer who did it !
UPDATE : just click on the team name to get to their solutions.

1. I run a very short file with 500*300 random numbers.
The solutions running too slowly to run a large file are put on the side.
The solutions not building (example : files in a subfolder instead of root ?) are put on the side.
The solutions not running (example : "run" not executable ?) are put on the side.

2. I ran a simple file with 500*18000 random numbers.

3. First on 10 threads on a lightly loaded machine.
Three runs, only the best one kept as reference.

4. Then on 40 cores, but with 2 cores loaded
(to simulate an unexpected kernel or IO activity)
Three runs, only the best one kept as reference.

The 40 core run is the most important criteria
for the final note.

Documentation and build system is also considered for the technical note."

We also added the social part, plus the readme part, and everything added gives us the final rating.

  • Some of you made very good codes, but which didn't run on the MTL automatically. As we know people had trouble to connect to the MTL to test their codes, we decided to allow special prizes to people who made these good submissions. You will see the name of these winners in the 2nd table.
  • One prize per team member
  • The notebook winners will be asked to put their code and readme in a blog post on, in order to share their method with the community. (Everything will be explained by e-mail.)
  • If you do not appear in the list, feel free to contact to know your exact position.
  • As you can see, we have more prizes than announced, this is a little surprise from us :).
  • For all the people who did not have the time to participate or who had some trouble with the submission, we still accept the codes for our "late contest" which will run until december. We will also have nice prizes.
  • We have 30 netbooks with French Keyboards, so the teams specified below will have to choose between Intel 80gb SSD or Asus Eee PC 1015 Dual core Netbook. ( The first teams wil have the choice)
  • Every winner will have to send an email to with his full adress, University, and his shirt size(S/M/L or XL)  in order to get the prize. (it will only be used to send the prize, we do not keep these adresses.)
  • If a teacher helped you during the contest, please provide us his name and address in order to send  his/her prize.
You also can participate in the survey, to share your experience about the contest with us.
If you see any errors in your name/team, please contact us at, it will be corrected ASAP.
The rankings will be updated with your school/country when we will have them.
