On November 13, the ACM student team from School ofComputer Science of SCUN won the silver medal in the 41st ACM InternationalCollegiate Programming Contest(ACM/ICPC)Asia Regional Contest, which wasthe best result that SCUN has ever had in this contest since 2009.

ACM/ICPCfosters creativity, teamwork, and innovation in building new software programs,and enables students to test their ability to perform under pressure. 326 teamsfrom 187 universities such as Tsinghua University, Peking University, TheChinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and other universities participated inthis contest.

SCUN ACMstudent team consisted of three students from the School of Computer Science,including Fu Xiaoxin, a senior student majoring in Automation, Chen Haoyuan, ajunior student majoring in Computer Science and Technology, and Yang Yuxin, ajunior student majoring in Intelligence Science and Technology. The studentteam worked together and strove with all their might for the contest. Afterfive hours of intense competition, with their solid foundation of specialknowledge, ready adaptability, excellent psychological quality and good teamspirit, SCUN ACM student team finally won a silver medal in this contest.

It islearned that ACM/ICPC is a multitier, team-based, programming competitionoperating under the auspices of ACM. The contest is the oldest, largest, andmost prestigious programming contest in the world, and could be regarded as the“Olympic Game” in Computing disciplines. Now, it has become one of the mostimportant indexes of evaluating the innovation capability of students incomputing disciplines.
