Collegiate Programmers to Converge on the U of M
On November 3, 20 teams from universities in the upper Midwest 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 at Porto in Portugal, where they will get the chance to compete in a group of 120 teams selected from around the world.
Over 200 teams are competing throughout the region in 14 sites across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Western Ontario, Manitoba, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and the UP of Michigan.
These teams join with 111 participating countries with over 3000 universities representing over 50,000 students.
Please join the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in welcoming all programming teams to our home in Keller Hall. Good luck to all! We will be rooting for our 10 U of M teams aiming to make the World Finals in the spring.
Further information about the NCNA, contest rules, and details about world finals can be found at their website.
