The International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) is an annual programming contest where teams of 3 students compete in solving as many algorithmic problems as possible within 5 hours.
Every year we train students for these contests in our course on Competitve Programming. After participating with 10 teams in the German regional contest (GCPC), 3 of our teams participated in the Northwestern Regional Contest (NWERC) at TU Einhoven. They scored a respectable 25th, 56th and 58th place in a competitve field of 122 teams. Congratulations!
