Warsaw University students are Central European Champions in Team Programming

Students of the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics, Warsaw University (UW), won the Central European Academic Team Programming Championships.

The championships took place on November 28-30 this year in the Institute of Informatics, Wrocław University. The contest was entered by 75 three-person teams from 34 universities from Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland, and Hungary. The UW teams performed excellently. The 2008/2009 Central European Champion title was awarded to a UW team composed of Marcin Andrychowicz, Maciej Klimek, and Marcin Kościelnicki. The winning team solved 8 out of 10 tasks prepared by the organizers and beat thanks to a better time the second best team, also from UW, composed of Tomasz Kuczyński, Jakub Łącki, and Piotr Mikulski.

This is yet another victory of UW students, but it should be emphasized that it is also a success of Prof. Jan Madey and Prof. Krzysztof Diks who, having been working for many years with new and new students, maintain an exceptionally high level of knowledge and skills of their charges, sharing their own rich experience gained through participating in programming contests. Furthermore, they arouse passion in their best students, who continue their career at the University. This year’s team was also coached by Marek Cygan and Jakub Radoszewski, PhD students. In March last year, Marek Cygan was a member of the team which won the world championship in team programming during the competition held in Tokyo. ATM S.A. has been with those students for many years, not only as a sponsor of the team, but also as its committed fan.
