Collegiate Programmers Converge on the U of M

October 28, 2016

This weekend, 19 teams from schools around Minnesota will converge on Keller Hall to compete in the ACM North Central North America Regional Programming Contest (NCNA).

Not only will teams spend all day competing for “bragging rights” as top collegiate programmers, but if their team ranks among the top they will advance to the contest’s World Finals, where they will compete in a group of 120 teams selected from around the world.

Nearly 230 teams are competing in 14 sites across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Western Ontario, Manitoba, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and the UP of Michigan.

Please join the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in welcoming all programming teams to our home in Keller Hall.  Good luck to all!

Sponsorship is provided by IBM and each contestant will receive a T-shirt, prizes, refreshments and more.  Further information about the NCNA, contest rules, and details about world finals can be found at their website.
