From 6 to 18 September, the Kalashnikov Izhevsk State Technical University hosted the XVI Educational and Sports Intellectual Competition of Students held in collaboration with the Lomonosov Moscow State University. The training has traditionally been the mirror of the PetrSU Programming Training Camp (i.e. they are based on the same problems) and its goal is to prepare teams for participation in the ACM ICPC International Collegiate Programming Contest. This year has seen 15 student teams from Russian and Kazakh universities as well as one middle school student team participate in the training.
Several cups were drawn: the Kalashnikov ISTU Rector Cup, the SDB "Kontur" Cup and the Yandex Cup. Our team Moscow IPT (Alexander Kulkov, Albert Sverdlov and Nikita Uvarov) managed to win the SDB "Kontur" Cup and the Yandex Cup, but they happened to be short on some victories to win the Rector Cup: they won the absolute second place in the scoreboards.
However, the team won the first position in the total scoreboards prematurely: it became apparent before the start of the last contest that no one would be able to take this position away from them.
Congratulations to the team Moscow IPT and we wish them all success in the upcoming season!
