Virginia Tech Represented At World Finals In Tokyo
March 12, 2007

“The Milk’s Gone Bad,” a team of three undergraduate students from the Virginia Tech College of Engineering (www.eng.vt.edu/main/index.php), will compete in the World Finals of the Association of Computing Machinery International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC), March 12-16 in Tokyo, Japan.

The Virginia Tech team is one of only 20 U.S. teams to win places in the world finals. The team members, all seniors, are Mike Henry, a computer engineering major from Fairfax, Va.; Cris Kania, a computer science major from Crozet, Va.; and Joel Riley, a computer science major from Ashburn, Va.

More than 6,099 teams representing 1,756 universities worldwide participated in regional competitions in 2006. The top 88 teams qualified for positions in the world finals, which will be hosted by IBM’s Tokyo Research Lab and the ACM Japan Chapter. The annual international contest is sponsored by IBM.

The Virginia Tech team will be competing against students from the best computer science schools in the world. Universities in the U.S. being represented include Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Duke, Harvard, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

All five Virginia Tech teams this year were coached by Joseph Gleason, a 2006 computer science graduate who participated in the ACM-ICPC competition while he was a student.
