In Central Europe they won again!

Two weeks ago we announced that the sponsored Warsaw University undergraduates have again won Polish Collegiate Team Programming Championship. The same team featuring: Marek Cygan, Marcin Pilipczuk and Filip Wolski also became Central European champion.

Over the past weekend (November 9 to 11), Prague hosted Central European Programming Contest. The Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of Warsaw University team under the care of professors Krzysztof Diks and Jan Madey, respectively, showed excellent performance as before.

Please note that the contest is the opportunity for undergraduates to try their skills in team work on solving IT problems. This helps learn the specificity of this type of contest and prepare for world championship — ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. They also create a possibility to make new contacts among undergraduates of various academic centres.

The contestants are grouped in three-person teams. The game is closed for graduates (except for engineers and BA graduates) and for those who already took part in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest finals twice.

The game lasts 5 hours. They are run in a network. Each team has a set of computers controlled by Linux. Teams are grouped based on the number of successful tasks.

The Warsaw University team will represent the university at the World Championship to be held April 6 to 10, 2008 in Canada.
