IIIT-Delhi makes it to ICPC World Finals

Our team Bhanayak Maut comprising of 3rd and 4th year undergraduates Hanit Banga, Parth Mittla and Utsav Rohilla has qualified for the World Finals of ICPC – the oldest, largest, and most prestigious programming contest in the world. The International Collegiate Programming Contest, known as the ICPC (formerly known as ACM-ICPC), is an annual multi-tiered competitive programming competition among the undergraduates of universities across the world. Since 1977, the ICPC operates autonomous regional contests covering six continents culminating in a global World Finals every year. In 2017, 49,935 students from 3,098 universities in 111 countries participated in this contest.

Many congratulation to Hanit, Parth and Utsav for securing the first position in the ICPC Gwalior-Pune Regionals and qualifying to represent IIIT-Delhi in the ICPC World Finals 2019 which is to be held in Porto, Portugal from March 31st to April 5th, 2019. The same team were within top five in the last year but narrowly missed the opportunity to go Finals.

Another team named TBA comprising of Aayush Aggarwal, Nihesh Anderson and Nikhil Hassija came seventh in the ICPC Kharagpur regionals this year.
