Annual Programming Competition to be held Saturday in EAB

More than 60 students from six regional universities will compete with their math and programming skills Saturday (Nov. 4) during the annual ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). The event is being held from 12:30 p.m. -5 p.m. in Webster University’s East Academic Building.

Webster has hosted the annual competition for more than 12 years.

The ICPC is a multitier, team-based, programming competition with regional, national and international competitions involving the best and brightest computer science and math students in the world. The contest involves a global network of universities hosting regional competitions that advance teams to the ACM-ICPC World Finals. The contest fosters creativity, teamwork, and innovation in building new software programs, and enables students to test their ability to perform under pressure. Quite simply, it is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world.

Webster University’s Math & Computer Science Department is hosting this year’s regional competition. There will be 18 teams participating from the following universities: Missouri Science and Technology, St. Louis University, Mckendree University, Lindenwood University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and Webster University.

The three teams from Webster University will be represented by:

Gorlok1                Marek Seth                         Palmer Jenna                     Regev Elie

Gorlok2                Hawkes Levi                       Tran Tri                                 Sato Alexander

Gorlok3                Sinitsyn Georgy                Grabinsky Aaron               Nguyen Hoang

Elie Regev is a third time contestant, and Seth Marek is a second time contestant. Regev is also a member of the site winning team last year along with two other students.

We wish the Gorloks the best of luck in Saturday’s competition.
