- UBC programming teams place 1st, 4th, and 14th
in ACM International Programming Competition, Pacific NW Division
For the third year in a row, a UBC programming team has proven to be the
programming demons to beat among top university Computer Science
Departments in Canada and the U.S in the Pacific Northwest Region.
Handily beating out teams from Stanford, Berkeley and SFU, the three
members of the winning UBC team were joined by two other UBC teams who
took fourth and 14th place respectively among more than 45 teams in
the region. SFU captured the second place spot tying with UBC to
complete 9 of 10 questions but were no competition when it came to the
amount of time it took for them to do that - trailing the UBC team by
more than 300 minutes on the scoreboard.
The top place team heads to San Antonio Texas and the World Finals in April 2006 to face stiff competition from approximately 75-80 other top teams from around the world.
