Within the scope of the event, participants who took part in the 5-day algorithm camp, were trained on various algorithms between 9:30-12:30 every day. Between 13:30 and 17: 30, students toiled over the solution to five questions about the algorithms they learned that day, completing their daily training by listening to the solutions of the competition questions between 17:45 and 19:00.

The training took place in two classes, where Middle East Technical University (METU) Department of Computer Engineering Undergraduate 3rd year student Kadir Çetinkaya in one class, and ITU Computer Engineering Undergraduate 2nd year student Muhammed Burak Buğrul in another class, shared their knowledge with participants. METU Computer Engineering Department senior student Baskın Burak Şenbaşlar prepared the competition questions and presented the solutions to the participants.
