Computer Science Majors To Compete in Programming Contest

Publication Date: 11/4/2011

Six computer science majors divided into two teams of three will compete in the annual Intercollegiate Computer Programming Contest (ICPC) at Murray State University on Saturday, Nov. 5. In the regional contest—also known as the “Battle of the Brains”—teams will be tasked with solving as many problems as possible in five hours, each requiring the correct coding of a computer program.

The teams are coached by Professor Stephen Rice and are as follows:

Rhodes Runners: Rui Liu ’13, Jeremey Key ’13, and Anthony Fizer ’12

Rhodes Runespoors: Eve Zheng ’13, Sydney Howard ’13, and Matthew McCaleb ’14.

The winners of regional contests will advance to the world finals to be held in Warsaw, Poland this year.

I did this my senior year and regretted not getting into it earlier. The competition is very exciting and it′s interesting to meet CS majors from other schools. Good luck to both teams!
