Association of Computing Machinery Regional Programming Contest
The 2018 Association of computing Machinery (ACM) ICPC East Central North America Regional Programming Contest was held on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at Youngstown State University. The competition is challenging and tests logic and problem-solving skills. It is a great opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to real industry problems.
The 10 problems this year were very difficult with only 9 problems solved by 2 teams from the University of Waterloo and 8 problems solved by two more teams from Waterloo and one team from Carnegie-Mellon University. We were not able to solve any of the problems despite several attempts by all teams. Michigan came in 5th place solving 5 problems while Ohio State came in the 39th place solving only one problem.
Team AU Eagles: Phillip Waller, Brennen Nalley, Kyle Hall
Team AU Purple: Kelly Fullin, Renne Lucas, Michael Cowan
Team AU Gold: Mohammed Bawazeer, Jonathan Meredith, Josiah Moore
Team The Bug Slayers: Nathan Ahrens, Erich Berger, Brennan Kunkel
Thank you for your participation. We are very proud of each and every one of our students! They did their best and there is always next year, although this was the last contest for Michael Cowan, Brennan Kunkel, and Nathan Ahrens since they are graduating next May. Congratulations to all 12 students!
