Two HPI student teams successfully participate in NWERC 2022

The Northwestern Europe Regional Contest 2022 (NWERC), an official regional contest in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, took place on November 26-27, 2022 in Delft (Netherlands). In the contest, 140 teams from universities all over the Northwestern part of Europe competed to solve a series of algorithmic problems. Drawing students from several countries, including 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 “Seems to be O(k!)” (26.): Konrad Letz, Lukas Hagen, Tobias Röhr.
  • Team “Hexaflexagons” (28.): Sebastian Angrick, Niko Hastrich, Jonas Schmidt.

The Algorithm Engineering group wishes to congratulate them on such an amazing ranking!
