Title

UTB first place in the South Central USA regional finals for the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) 2014

Body

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 University (http://ld2013.scusa.lsu.edu/scoreboard-regional/). 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.
