Although not technically a student organization, teams of three undergraduates frequently participate in the ACM's annual International Collegiate Programming Contest. The regional contests (which take place every fall semester) select teams that advance to the international contest finals in places like Tokyo, Shanghai, Prague, and Hawaii. If you are interested in participating in the regional contest — and perhaps the international finals, please contact Patrick Cavanaugh, who serves as the team's coach.
