Drawing students from all over Europe, inlcuding colleges and universities throughout Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden, two teams of HPI students (both with connections to the Competitive Programming courses of the Algorithm Engineering group) successfully participated in this year's edition. While the full scoreboard can be found on the official page, we collect the placement of the two teams here:
- Team "Hexaflexagons" (21.): Sebastian Angrick, Niko Hastrich, Jonas Schmidt.
