Department Highlights
  • 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.
