Three St. Lawrence University students attended the annual International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC), which took place on Oct. 29 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Sponsored by IBM, the ICPC is an annual multi-tiered competitive programming competition among the universities of the world. The contest started at Texas A & M in 1970 and has spread to include branches and chapters throughout the world. A team of St. Lawrence students JJ Ignac ’27, Tim Kashkarov ’26, and Alisa Krakhofer ’26 was among 27 teams, including teams from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Siena College, and Union College. All teams spent five hours working to solve twelve challenging problems. Ignac, Kashkarov, and Krakhofer earned the 18th place.
