The success of Polish universities in CERC 2022

The team of the Jagiellonian University won the competition ahead of the team of the University of Warsaw. Both teams solved ten problems out of 12, significantly ahead of the team of Charles University in Prague from the Czech Republic and the University of Zagreb from Croatia, which solved eight problems each  

The competition took place on November 26-27, 2022, in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and was attended by 57 three-person teams representing universities from Croatia, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Hungary. The winning team consisted of Antoni Długosz, Grzegorz Gawryał, and Jacek Salata; its supervisor was dr. Lech Duraj. It was the first victory of the Jagiellonian University in the over 20-year history of its starts in these competitions. The colors of the University of Warsaw, which took second place, were defended by: Arkadiusz Czarkowski, Bartłomiej Czarkowski, and Tomasz Nowak, their supervisors were Wojciech Nadara and Marek Sokołowski, and the team leader was prof. Krzysztof Diks.

The University of Warsaw team won a silver medal

Other teams from both universities also took high places. The second team of the Jagiellonian University, composed of Vladyslav Denysiuk, Oleh Naver, and Roman Yanushevskyi, took 5th place with a silver medal. They are from Ukraine, this year’s winners of the Scholarship. Franciszek Mertens. The following teams from Jagiellonian University took 11th, 13th, and 17th places. Two teams from the University of Warsaw won bronze medals, taking 6th and 9th places, and the next two – 14th and 20th.

The teams of the University of Wrocław fared less well, this time taking the following places: 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, and 27th, and even the best of them will not participate in the ICPC finals. It is quite a surprise because a year ago, the team of the University of Wrocław took 5th place in the finals of the 44th edition of the ICPC, winning the silver medal. Since 2009 it has failed to advance to the finals only once (in 2016).

ICPC Finals

The first two teams from the Central European Championship qualified for the finals of the 47th edition of the Academic World Collegiate Programming Championship, which will take place at the end of 2023 in Egypt. In this year’s finals of the 46th edition of the ICPC, the University of Warsaw did a great job, winning the silver medal and taking 8th place. As the only university in the world, it continuously qualifies for the ICPC finals since its first start in the regional qualifiers in 1994, winning twice in 2003 and 2007 and winning a total of five gold, seven silver, and four bronze medals. The Jagiellonian University and the University of Wrocław advanced to the finals 11 times each, winning one gold and two bronze medals and three silver and one bronze medals, respectively.
