UMD CS undergraduate students: Alan Jackoway, Mitchell Katz, Matt McCutchen, finished 14th overall (tied with 22 other schools) and 5th among U.S. competitors in the ACM Programming Contest World Finals, held in Harbin, China. They tied with teams from several other US universities (Stanford, Cornell, CMU, MIT, and Michigan) for the best placement by a North American Team (the Stanford team was crowned the North American champions based on the time taken to solve the problems). The contest featured 103 teams chosen from over 7000 teams that participated in the regional contests worldwide.
