Our computer science students had a strong showing at the North American East Division’s International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC). Rochester fielded four of the 177 teams from the Northeast and East Central regions that competed on October 29.

Rochester’s Team #1—composed of MS student Xiaoou Zhou, Yan Zou ‘27, and Zeyu Nie ’24—solved nine of 12 problems and placed as the third university in the Northeast region, behind just MIT and Harvard. They advance to the ICPC North America Championship to be held in Florida next year.

Other students who participated included Lam Pham ’26, Tran Duy Anh Le ’25, Xingzhi Ye ’25, Yekai Pan ’26, Shuhan Li, ’26, Maki Nampei ’27, Vuong Ho ’24, and Isabel Humphreys ’27. Please join me in congratulating all the students who competed.
