On November 1-2, 2013, a UTB team (Ocelot) consisting of
three CSMT undergraduate students and a faculty coach (Dr. Liyu Zhang) traveled
to Baylor University and competed in the South Central USA regional finals for
the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) 2014. The UTB team
performed extraordinarily well by being the only team that solved all the
contest problems more than one hour ahead of permitted finishing time.
Consequently, the UTB team was ranked first in the contest among 57
participating teams including those from UT Austin, UT Dallas and Rice
Being the winner of the ICPC regional finals the UTB team will now be eligible
to compete in the world finals of ICPC 2014 to be held June 22-26, 2014 at
Yekaterinburg, Russia. The student members of UTB team were selected based on
interested students' credentials and the result of an internal tryout held
earlier on UTB campus.
