The CPSSD4 team of Conor Griffin, Darragh Griffin and Ryan Connell, came in 1st place on the Irish scoreboard with 8 out of 12 problems solved. Impressively, this put them in 23rd place out of 198 teams competing across the UK and Ireland.

The DCU secondary school AIPO team finished in 2nd place on the Irish scoreboard, made up of the students who recently travelled to Tehran for the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI). A tremendous result for these young men against the top undergraduates in the country.

Third place went to 2017 HashCode winners, Noah Donnelly, Cian Ruane and Ciara Godwin from CPSSD3 and CASE3.

2016 UKIEPC Programming Competition at DCU

UKIEPC@DCU-1On Saturday 29th October, 24 undergraduate teams from 4 different Universities converged on the School of Computing, DCU, to do battle in the 4th annual UK & Ireland Programming Competition.

The UKIEPC is a sub-regional competition of the North West European Programming Competition (NWERC) and ultimately the prestigious ACM ICPC contest. This year there were over 200 teams, totaling around 550 students from 26 different universities around the UK and Ireland pitting their wits against a common problem set. Each team had to solve as many problems as possible in the shortest period of time, with time penalties added for every incorrect solution submitted.

This year, the DCU site was generously sponsored by Arista Networks, with Amazon vouchers for 2nd and 3rd placed teams and funded travel for the best placed team to attend the NWERC competition at Bath University in November.
