CSE to Host ACM Regional Programming Contest


The UNL Computer Science and Engineering Department, in conjunction with the local chapter of ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), is organizing and hosting the 2013 ACM Regional Programming Contest, which will be held in Avery Hall on Saturday, November 9, 2013. Approximately 35 teams will come to UNL for this regional contest, and the top team will go to Russia in May 2014 to compete in the World Finals.

Volunteers are still needed. UNL students, please contact Carden Reichert at mreicher@cse.unl.edu if you are willing to help even if it's just for a couple hours. The contest is from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm in Avery Hall and is sponsored primarily by IBM as well as EPSCoR, Powderhook, Zillow, Garmin, and the Jeffrey S. Raikes School of Computer Science and Management. Sites across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Western Ontario, Manitoba, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Michigan will hold regional competitions simultaneously, with two to three teams from each region advancing to the World Finals in Ekaterinburg, Russia.

Last year, UNL hosted the contest on Saturday, November 3. UNL has sent teams to the International Collegiate Programming Contest World Finals eight of the past 15 years.
