Tertiary students demonstrate strengths in programming

The 24th Annual ACM-HK Collegiate Programming Contest, the largest programming contest for tertiary institution students in Hong Kong, co-organized by the Hong Kong Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the OUHK’s School of Science and Technology, was held at the OUHK campus on 28 June. The contest gave a total of 29 teams from eight universities in Hong Kong and Macau a chance to demonstrate their programming strengths. Each of the teams spent four hours attempting to solve seven challenging problems. After a fierce competition, a team from the University of Hong Kong won the championship by solving the greatest number of problems. The contest was followed by a banquet in which awards were presented by the Government Chief Information Officer Mr Daniel Lai, Legislative Councilor (Information Technology) Mr Charles Mok and the OUHK Dean of the School of Science and Technology Prof. Ho Kin-chung.
