Two HSE Teams Confirmed as ICPC Finalists

On December 1st and 2nd, the semifinals of the International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) for teams from the Northern Eurasia region were held. HSE teams from St. Petersburg (8th place) and the Moscow-based Faculty of Computer Science (13th place) received first class certificates. Furthermore, the teams will represent HSE at the finals, which will be held in Portugal next year.

Around 900 students from 90 Russian and 62 CIS universities took part in the contest. For five hours, the participants had to solve algorithmic problems using such programming languages as C++, Java, Python, and Kotlin.

ICPC is specifically focused on team participation. In fact, team programming competitions have become quite popular in Russia and CIS countries. So, it’s not entirely surprising that a lot of teams representing the Northern Eurasia region make it to the finals and show good results there. This year, 15 teams from this region will take part in the finals, with 9 of them representing Russian universities.

This year,10 teams, including students from Perm and Nizhny Novgorod, represented HSE at the competition. To reach the semifinals in St. Petersburg, students had to pass the qualifying round for their region. The team of the Faculty of Computer Science (Daniil Nikolenko, Philipp Gribov and Askhat Sakhabiev) took 3rd place in the Moscow quarter-finals, while Alexander Fedorov, Anton Ermilov and Igor Labutin from HSE St. Petersburg placed 4th in the Northern region qualifications.
