The quarter-final of the programming (ACM) world championship for student’s teams took place at Chernyshevsky Saratov National Research University. 73 teams from the southern region of Russia were selected after the qualifying round. Voronezh State University was represented by five teams consisting of students of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics and the Faculty of Computer Sciences.
The championship is traditionally held in the ACM format. Each team included three participants who had 5 hours to solve 13 problems in English. This year the team headed by Mikhail Zemlyanukhin acheived the best results. The other two team members are master’s degree students of the Faculty of Computer Sciences Alexander Nogykh and Alexander Kolesov. They were awarded with a 2nd degree diploma. Two other teams got 3rd degree diplomas – Alexey Zolotukhin’s team consisting of the students of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics Yaroslav Tishin and Viktor Kiselov, and Artem Pivovarov’s team consisting of the students of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics Lubov Lesnykh and Mikhail Golovay.
Mikhail Zemlyanukhin’s team and Alexey Zolotukhin’s team were selected to take part in the semi-final of the championship, which will take place in December in Saint Petersburg – the centre of the north-eastern region of the championship in Europe.
This year the championship organisers introduced a non-competition contest Code Game Challenge, where Mikhail Zemlyanukhin’s team took the third place. VSU's teams were supported by the company DSR.
We congratulate our students on their success in the quarter-final and wish them great luck in the semi-final!
