Auckland Site Contest Report

We had 17 teams competing at the Auckland University of Technology this year. The home university and our neighbours at the University of Auckland competed, as did teams from the University of Waikato, Victoria University in Wellington, and Massey University's Institute of Information Sciences & Technology.

The proceedings were opened by Professor Steve MacDonell of AUT. Registration was conducted by Peter Kaye and Firas Al-Ali. Our site technician Art Brown worked hard to get the machines ready in time (the lab we were using was open to students until 7pm Friday!), while the judges Michael Dinneen, Radu Nicolescu , Bill Rogers and Tony McGregor made their final preparations. Boris Bacic took photographs of all the teams.

The first submission arrived after about 10 minutes, and the judges were kept busy most of the afternoon. Gordon Grimsey and Nurul Sarkar helped in the contest lab, and with the distribution of pizzas afterwards.

Congratulations to the site winners, void from the University of Auckland, who are also the New Zealand champions for 2002. Every team managed to solve at least 2 problems, so well done to you all! Thanks to everyone who helped, especially to Art for the huge amount of work he put in on the day and into the early hours of Sunday morning!
