In April, a select team of computer science students will travel to Stockholm, Sweden to represent Cornell in the 33rd annual Association for Computing Machinery International Collegiate Programming Contest Finals, sponsored by IBM.
The ACM-ICPC, more commonly known as the “Battle of the Brains,” is a global competition between 7,109 teams that “challenges students to solve real-world problems using open technology and advanced computing methods under a grueling, five-hour deadline,” according to the contest’s website. Of those 7,109 teams, only 100 qualify for the final competition in Stockholm.
The Student Assembly’s decision to allow the student body to directly elect its next president and executive vice president was intended to “make the elections process both more open and more democratic,” according to Resolution 12, passed by the S.A. last spring.
