LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 28, 2003) -- Thirteen University of Kentucky computer science and engineering students will compete with peers from colleges and universities in Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, northwest Indiana, Missouri and Arkansas for the right to advance in their region in the Association of Computing Machinery’s International Collegiate Programming Contest. The regional competition will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, at the William T. Young Library.

The students will compete in teams for five hours, tackling six to eight real-world programming challenges – the equivalent of completing a semester’s worth of computer programming in one afternoon.
