AU students in 2013 ACM-ICPC East Central North America Regional Programming Contest

Eight computer science majors from AU participated in the 2013 ACM East Central North America Regional Programming Contest at the Youngstown University site on November 9, 2013. These students formed two teams and each team was able to tackle one out of nine problems. The AU_purple team (Kees Edwards, Kenny Bogner, and Paul Pernici) was ranked 24 out of 45 teams at Youngstown site and the AU_gold team (Chris Yocum, Cameron Goodson, and Ben Bushong) was ranked 41 out of the 45 teams. Two freshmen observers (Rupesh Maharjan and Alex Gregory) also gained valuable experience in this contest. The team coaches were Boris Kerkez and Paul Cao.

The regional contest is part of the larger International Collegiate Programming Contest, sponsored annually by the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery).  This year's regional contest was held at four different sites and drew 126 teams from 61 colleges and universities throughout western Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, eastern Ontario, and Indiana (excluding the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area).  Learn more and check out the Problem Set at the ACM's regional contest site:
