Calling all Computer Science students!

Every year the ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) organizes the ACM – ICPC, the International Collegiate Programming Contest. The 2013 ICPC will be hosted by the Saint Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics in beautiful Saint-Petersburg, Russia, because the Russian team from that university won the world finals this year.

We have received a student request to form a participating team at UWGB. We need three (3) Computer Science majors who are interested in being contestants. This will be a first for our program. While all other UW campuses participate, UWGB has been on the sidelines. The time has come! Maybe we will host the ICPC in 2014! Because we win the world finals in 2013! Go Phoenix! (Well, short of that, participation would be a first, and an honor). So far there is definite interest from one (1) Computer Science major, so we are looking for two more incredibly talented and brilliant CS majors (of which we have an abundance). So contact the Chair (breznayp@uwgb.edu) if you are interested.
