Last Saturday, October 19, Arjan Cornelissen, Farrokh Labib and Ruben Brokkelkamp formed a combined QuSoft/CWI team participating in the BAPC 2019 programming contest and earned the 4th place in the company contest, competing against companies such as ASML, Booking.com, Ortec and Sioux.
The Benelux Algorithm Programming Contest (BAPC) is a contest in which about 50 student teams from leading universities in Luxemburg, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as a dozen company teams, are served a series of algorithmic problems/puzzles. The goal of each team is to solve as many puzzles as possible within the set time limit. Solutions need to be programmed out on a computer and can be submitted to a semi-automated judging system, after which the solution is checked. The BAPC 2019 took place on October 19th at the Radboud University in Nijmegen.
